FSYO Opera Ball: UCF Opera performs Strauss’s Die Fledermaus

Saturday, March 4, 2017; 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Location: Off Campus in the Off Campus
Cost: Tickets available through www.FSYO.org

UCF Opera performs the second act of Die Fledermaus fully staged with orchestra. This performance is part of an Opera Gala fundraiser for the Florida Youth Symphony Orchestra.

The second act of the operetta will also be performed on the UCF main campus on Sunday, March 5.


Die Fledermaus (“The Bat” and sometimes called “The Revenge of the Bat”) is an operetta, or light opera, composed by Johann Strauss II filled with typical Viennese music – it premiered in 1874. UCF’s performance will be sung in English, and accompanied by members of the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Hanrich Claassen, who himself lived and taught music in Vienna for several years. This performance is of the second act of the opera, set at a ball at the lavish villa of the wealthy Russian Prince Orlofsky. Dr. Falke has arranged the ball as a way of getting revenge on his friend Gabriel von Eisenstein. Many humorous moments of mistaken identity are punctuated by delicious music including the “Champagne Chorus” and a genuine Viennese waltz finale.
