Met Opera: Die Fledermaus


Die Fledermaus
by Johann Strauss, Jr.


A magnificent masked ball, given by a Russian prince, brings together all the main characters in various disguises. The three-act journey from boudoir to ballroom to jail provides ample opportunities for farce and humor, but also for genuine human emotion and a surprisingly realistic view of urban life.
