Opera Gallery Talk: Die Fledermaus

407 South Jefferson Street

This short performance and lecture program highlights the relationships between visual art, history, and music surrounding Pensacola Opera’s upcoming performance of DIE FLEDERMAUS on March 15 & 17.

Pensacola Opera’s Artists in Residence will perform selections from the score as the Director of Education walks visitors through the plot. You’ll also be taken on a tour of Fiesta Pensacola’s 75th Anniversary Retrospective exhibition, currently on display at the PMA featuring historical costumes.

Brief Summary of DIE FLEDERMAUS: Gabriel von Eisenstein finds himself at Prince Orlofsky’s elaborate masquerade ball, along with his wife Rosalinde, their maid Adele, and his friend Dr. Falke. The catch? They’re all concealing their identities as part of an elaborate prank of light-hearted revenge. Just as things begin to unravel, all is revealed and the characters accept their bamboozlement, raising a toast to champagne’s delicious pleasures! With nonstop laughs from start to finish, Die Fledermaus has become one of the most well known and beloved German operettas of all time.

Music by Johann Strauss II
Original German libretto by Karl Haffner & Richard Genée
