DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY

An effervescent and sparkling confection, J. Strauss’s beloved operetta waltzes right into your heart with familiar melodies, witty repartee and delightful charm. The cunning Dr. Falke decides to play a joke on his good friend Eisenstein as a little light revenge for a night of carousing gone awry. As his scheme unfolds subplots hilariously pile up, eventually converging at an extravagant masquerade ball hosted by a Russian prince. Deceptions and disguises among friends and lovers give way to affection, laughter, and – as any happy ending should – champagne for all!

Die Fledermaus is the supreme example of Viennese operetta and will make its triumphant return to DMMO’s mainstage after a near 30-year absence!
