Opera Orlando celebrates its fifth anniversary season with a musical extravaganza like no other, Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus: The Revenge of the Bat onstage at Walt Disney Theater. It is a party not to be missed. Come dressed in your best and enjoy a night of intrigue and disguise at Prince Orlofsky’s masquerade ball. The champagne will flow freely as a harmless prank escalates to hilarious comic effect. Enjoy a night of delight, chock full of special guests and surprise appearances.

The action revolves around 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.

Argentinian born maestro Jorge Parodi returns to the Opera to get the party started, conducting musicians from the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra in some of the most delicious and memorable waltzes ever composed. Opera Orlando’s artistic director Grant Preisser directs this socially-distant send-up of Strauss’s comedic farce. Soprano Abigail Rethwisch makes her Opera Orlando debut as the captivating Rosalinda, and 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.

Members of the Opera Orlando Chorus round out the fun and the rest, well… we wouldn’t want to give away any surprises. You’ll just have to come see the show and enjoy the fun. Presented in English with English dialogue and supertitles. Estimated run time is two and a half hours with one intermission.
