What You'll Get
Johann Strauss Jr.'s fizzy comic operetta makes its welcome return to The Met, complete with updated libretto by Tony-nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane (Xanadu, Cinderella) and Maestro James Levine wielding the baton. Soprano Susanna Phillips is reprising her starring role as Rosalinde, with tenor Toby Spence and mezzo-soprano Susan Graham in the gender-bending role of Prince Orlofsky. Set in opulent turn-of-the-century Vienna, this sparkling tale revolves around a pair of friends engaging in a fierce battle of pranks, a beautiful wife who's contemplating infidelity, and her maid, who wants nothing more than to be an actress. Their schemes cleverly intertwine at a grand New Year's Eve ball -- with plenty of waltzing, of course -- and end up in prison where Champagne is blamed for all. And you're invited to partake of the bubbly as well. Each ticket to Die Fledermaus includes a voucher for a glass of Champagne or a non-alcoholic beverage.
Estimated run time is three hours 45 minutes, with two intermissions.
The opera is sung in English with Met titles in English, German and Spanish.
