Die Fledermaus poster

Celebrate the new year Viennese style with Vancouver Concert Opera Society’s saucy operetta Die Fledermaus (“The Bat”). Past performances of the Johann Strauss II operetta have been described as “riveting, passionate, poignant and totally satisfying”. Conductor George Hemcher will join a talented cast of international artists.

The story
The best of friends play pranks on each other, but when Eisenstein abandons Falke in the middle of the town square dressed as a bat, Falke swears revenge. With Prince Orlofsky’s permission, the stage is set: Falke invites everyone to a grand ball at the Prince’s summer palace where Falke will strike his revenge. The next morning, the entire party lands in the town jail, all blaming champagne, the king of effervescence, for their unfortunate circumstance.

Die Fledermaus will be sung in German with English dialogue for three shows: two in Vancouver and one in White Rock.
