Die Fledermaus

Operetta

Enjoy a musical summer delight for the whole family with a concert version of Johann Straussí charming work Die Fledermaus, sung in English by members of Riuniti Opera, with conductor Dr. Daniel Andai and the Alhambra Orchestra. See how a group of Viennese friends each take fake identities for their own purposes, until the deceptions get so ridiculously complicated that everything finally has to be revealed, spectacularly curing an unhappy Russian prince who hasnít been able to laugh at anything for years. Full of lovely melodies, this comic operetta has been amusing audiences since its premiere in 1874. Cast members are Melissa Ruiz, Eddie Valdes, Janelly Perez, Dale Kitchell, Erik Wilson, Jared Peroune, and Dr. Beverly Coulter, who is the director of Riuniti Opera Company. These free performances are a great way to introduce your children to opera, and beat the summer doldrums yourself. Both presenting organizations are local nonprofits dedicated to serving our community. Free admission, free parking. June 17 performance for all ages.
