Oh, What a Night
After 25 years, Die Fledermaus returns to Santa Fe. The pranks are out of control at the party of the year. Gabriel von Eisenstein doesn’t recognize his wife and tries to seduce her. The merriment moves from the ballroom to the jail as Ned Canty (The Daughter of the Regiment, 2015) directs. Tenor Kurt Streit (Eugene Onegin, 2002) is Gabriel and soprano Devon Gutherie (Fidelio, 2014) is Rosalinde. Tenor Dimitri Pittas (The Elixir of Love, 2009) is her amorous music teacher and the chambermaid is soprano Jane Archibald, making her Santa Fe debut. Baritone Joshua Hopkins (Capriccio, 2016) is Dr. Falke, the mastermind of the prank gone wrong. Mezzo-sopranos Susan Graham (Capriccio, 2016) and Paula Murrihy, former Santa Fe apprentice, share honors as Prince Orlofsky, and bass-baritone Kevin Burdette (The Daughter of the Regiment, 2015) is the jailor. Rory Macdonald (Carmen, 2014) conducts.

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.
