Peterborough Opera invites you to have a ball with a bat!
7:30pm - 10:15pm
Queen Victoria Hall, Oundle
7 West Street, PE8 4EJ
Tickets: Adults £15, U19s £10
Following their recent successful performances of Verdi’s A Masked Ball and Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet, Peterborough Opera invites you to attend their production of Johann Strauss’ Die Fledermaus.
Strauss’ light-hearted opera tells the story of mistaken identities, flirtation and mischief at a nobleman’s party. The cast is led by Martin Muir (Eisenstein), Liz Williams (Rosalinda), Anna Murgatroyd (Adele), Julie van Haperen (Orlofsky), Adrian Wall (Alfred), Mike Hammond (Dr Falke), Laurence Lewis (Dr Blind), Glyn Jones (Frank), and Helen Reece (Ida). The production will be directed by Jan Haylock, with Kate Wishart as Musical Director.
Eisenstein, about to be sent to prison, secretly decides instead to attend one of Prince Orlofsky’s magnificent parties, famous for flowing champagne and beautiful dancing girls. Thinking that her husband has gone to prison, Rosalinda’s former lover, Alfred, decides to visit her for the evening, until they’re interrupted by the prison governor who is looking for Eisenstein! Meanwhile, her maid, Adele, also plans to attend the ball, but pretends to her mistress that she must visit her sick aunt. At the ball, the guests are in various guises, and champagne celebrations lead to frivolous flirting and fun.
The morning after the night before…
Eisenstein hands himself over to the prison governor, where confusion mounts. When Rosalinda and the other guests arrive, the mayhem from the night before comes to light, leading to some sheepish realisations…
