Harvard College Opera invites you to the greatest party of the year in Johann Strauss II’s Die Fledermaus. This comedic operetta encompasses one uproarious day as playboy Eisenstein postpones his prison sentence to attend Prince Orlofsky’s masked ball, only to find himself the butt of a practical joke. Fueled by deception and copious champagne, the rousing story and score will “turn your morals upside down and set your spirits free.”
