Die Fledermaus

Cheers! To the prankster’s revenge!  

Some time ago, Gabriel von Eisenstein playfully tossed his friend Doctor Falke out of a carriage en route home from a lavish costume party. Forced to stumble across Vienna decked in a ridiculous bat disguise, Falke is now known about town as Doctor Bat, or Die Fledermaus. Tonight, we find Eisenstein attempting to dodge a short jail sentence for yet another overture of mischief. Under the guise of one final night on the town, Falke launches a champagne-soaked prank with the help of Eisenstein’s wife Rosalinde, determined to entertain the evening’s dinner party host Prince Orlofsky. Will the feckless von Eisenstein learn his lesson? More importantly, will you and the stoic Prince Orlofsky manage to contain your laughter?
