Johann Strauss Jr.'s Die Fledermaus (The Bat) , performed here by Bel Cantanti Opera Company, is an opera of merriment, revenge and mistaken identities. The notary Dr. Falke seeks revenge on his friend von Eisenstein for publicly humiliating him. He has concocted an elaborate plan that will play out at a costumed ball for a local prince. At the ball, chaos ensues due to Dr. Falke's vindictive plan and everyone ends up in prison, where they must resolve the situation. They wisely decide that everything can be blamed on champagne. This lighthearted tale of revelry and song features a score that sparkles and fizzes with comic irony. Learn More

No one in the audience knew that Dumb Waiter had ended till the Director walked out. There was no applause. I think it was staff members who started the applause to signal that Trifles was over. Fortunately, the two horrible plays lasted only about an hour and a half, includ9nmg a 15-minute intermission.
Randolph Road Theater was the one-time home of Round House Theater. It offers free, plentiful parking.
This event is not recommended for children.
