Die Fledermaus
Operetta by Johann Straus

A ball at a royal palace, a husband hoping for a fling, and a case of mistaken identity. Stir these ingredients into a crystal glass of bubbly and you have the comic opera that has delighted audiences for over a hundred years. You're invited to a party at Prince Orlovsky's villa. But be careful - champagne and desire can be a scandalous combination!

Sponsored by Downeast Magazine

A quadrennial joint production of the USM School of Music and Department of Theatre, with the Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra.

Directed by Assunta Kent
