Location: Miller Concert Hall located inside Duerksen Fine Arts Center

Doors open a half hour before show time. Box Office opens one hour prior to show time in the Duerksen Fine Arts Center Lobby. Please plan to arrive early to avoid lines.

As one of the most popular operettas of all time, Die Fledermaus has everything needed for a great evening's entertainment: wonderful characters, a truly funny book, and music that bubbles along like champagne. The Bat of the title is Dr. Falke, on whom his friend Mr. Eisenstein once played a trick. The two had gone to a costume party, and got roaring drunk. Eisenstein left Falke passed out in the town square dressed in his bat costume. Tonight is Falke's turn: he concocts an elaborate ruse to get Eisenstein invited to a decadent party, and arranges for his wife to catch him flirting with chorus girls from the ballet. Hilarious complications ensue, but there's never a doubt that all will end on an up-note. Directed by Marie King, Director of Opera. Rating: PG
