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

A uniformly excellent production of a sometimes difficult, clearly challenging--but ultimately rewarding--play. A very ambitious undertaking for community theater, but all at Unexpected Stage Company rose to--and were fully equal to--the challenge.
