Die Fledermaus

Oh, What a Night

Waltzes as intoxicating as champagne abound at Prince Orlovsky's masked ball, where elaborate plots are uncorked and romantic assignations go astray. At the epicenter of it all is suave Gabriel von Eisenstein, blissfully unaware that the piquant Hungarian countess he is wooing is actually his wife, Rosalinde. By daybreak, the party guests find themselves at the city jail, where the Eisenstein's recharge their mutual passion and everyone is free to leave, following a final chorus of course — in honor of champagne.

The Music

A New Year’s Eve Filled with Hilarious Antics

Dating from 1874, Die Fledermaus is considered by most critics to be the greatest of all Viennese operettas. It’s been 25 years since this landmark production, conceived by the esteemed late director Charles Ludlam, last appeared at The Santa Fe Opera. Ned Canty, who directed two riotous productions in recent years (The Last Savage, 2011, and The Daughter of The Regiment, 2015) will stage direct Die Fledermaus with all of its irresistible waltzes and arias in 2017.
