The supreme example of Viennese operetta, Johann Strauss Jr.'s Die Fledermaus both defines and transcends that genre. Its story centers on a magnificent masked ball, given by a Russian prince, which 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. Performed in English with an all-Idaho cast, Die Fledermaus will be directed by Ben Spierman, who has recently directed Opera Idaho productions of Carmen and The Magic Flute.
