Enjoy a frivolous afternoon of memorable tunes, champagne and waltzes in Johann Strauss’s lively operetta, Die Fledermaus. Katie Derham (right) presents the Vienna State Opera Chorus and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra’s performance, bringing us a tale of ballets, balls, drinking songs and a few cases of mistaken identity thrown in for good measure. The cast of soloists includes tenor Kurt Streit playing Gabriel von Eisenstein, and soprano Michaela Kaune starring as his wife, Rosalinde. Franz Welser-Möst conducts.
