Operetta

Special one-hour just-for-kids performance of excerpts from Johann Strauss’ charming work Die Fledermaus, sung in English by members of Riuniti Opera, with conductor Dr. Daniel Andai and the Alhambra Orchestra. 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. 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.
