Die Fledermaus: The Revenge of the Bat

Opera Orlando celebrates its fifth season with Strauss’s sparkling Die Fledermaus: The Revenge of the Bat onstage at the Dr. Phillips Center’s Walt Disney Theater.

Music by Johann Strauss II with a libretto by Karl Haffner & Richard Genée
Sung in English with English dialogue and supertitles
English translation by Grant Preisser

Opera Orlando takes the MainStage with a musical extravaganza like no other, Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus: The Revenge of the Bat onstage at Walt Disney Theater. It will be quite the party as Eisenstein’s long time friend Falke exacting revenge upon Eisenstein for a prank played upon Falke many years prior which left Falke stranded in the center of the town square, in a bat costume, drunk, and utterly humiliated, hence, “The Revenge of the Bat.” Falke’s intricate plan of getting back at his best friend involves a masquerade ball hosted by the eccentric Prince Orlofsky, multiple disguises for almost all of the cast, and magnum bottles of champagne galore, not to mention some good ol’ vaudeville hijinx thrown in just for fun. The champagne will flow freely as a harmless prank escalates to hilarious comic effect. Enjoy a night of delight and surprise appearances.

Argentinian born maestro Jorge Parodi returns to the Opera to get the party started, with artistic director Grant Preisser directing an Orlando-centric send-up of Strauss’s comedic farce. Soprano Abigail Rethwisch makes her Opera Orlando debut as the captivating Rosalinda, joined by Grammy Award-winning baritone Gabriel Preisser as her less-than-faithful husband Eisenstein. Soprano Cree Carrico also makes her Opera Orlando debut as the feisty chambermaid Adele, with the husband and wife duo of Sarah Nordin and Tyler Putnam taking on the roles of Prince Orlofsky and Police Warden Frank respectively. 

Sung in English with English dialogue and supertitles.
