“…Eaton has staged the work deliciously, amid colorful sets [that] add to the zany atmosphere… the lively production is a delightful treat that is well worth continuing… the enthusiasm of [the] audience seemed never to flag during the three-hour performance…

Robert Croan, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“…wonderfully presented on stage by Opera Theater… The kind of laughter that erupted time and again…was the ultimate tribute to a brilliant production of an operetta with a New Year's Eve party at its core…  The range and frequency of the jokes were as pleasantly dizzying as champagne…”

Mark Kanny, Pittsburgh Tribune Review

Be swept away by Jonathan Eaton's gilded new production of the perennial Strauss favorite, Die Fledermaus. Champagne and waltzes, mistaken identities, flirtations at a masked ball, frivolities and confusions of all kinds provide a hilarious vehicle for some of the most captivating music ever written. Sung in English.
