McLennan Opera to Present “Die Fledermaus” from March 30 to April 1

McLennan Community College Opera is set to perform “Die Fledermaus” from March 30 to April 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Ball Performing Arts Center located on the MCC campus. The operetta follows the story of Eisenstein, who attempts to evade prison for one night to attend Prince Orlofsky’s grand party.

Eisenstein desires to go to the party with his friend, Falke. To deceive his wife Rosalinde, he tells her that he is heading to jail. However, Rosalinde learns of his plan and follows him in disguise as a Hungarian countess. Even their maid, Adele, fakes an excuse to attend the party disguised as a Russian actress named Olga. After several cases of mistaken identities, Eisenstein attempts to seduce his own wife without realizing it. The farce ends with a happy ending for everyone.

The McLennan Opera will perform the operetta in English with a full orchestra, although it was originally written in German. The tickets are priced at $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and veterans, and free for MCC faculty, staff, and students.
