by Johann Strauss II
Mar 22, 2019 - Mar 24, 2019 | Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall
Palm Beach Opera’s 2018-2019 will close with Johann Strauss’ Die Fledermaus, a comedic series of mischief, intrigue, and revenge set at a lavish Viennese ball on New Year’s Eve. Palm Beach Opera Chief Conductor Maestro David Stern will also conduct this high-spirited comedy, and Artistic Director of Opera at Manhattan School of Music Dona D. Vaughn will serve as the Director. Keri Alkema, who captivated audiences in Palm Beach Opera’s recent production of Tosca, returns for another season with the company in role of Rosalinde. World-renowned mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe will sing the role of Orlofsky, returning to Palm Beach Opera after a critically-acclaimed performance in the company’s The Pirates of Penzance. Soprano Anna Christy, who has been celebrated by The New York Times as “nimble of voice, body and spirit,” will make her company debut in the role of Adele. Another company debut, tenor Zachary Borichevsky will perform as Eisensetin, a role the artist has performed at Cincinnati Opera.
Sung in English with English supertitles projected above the stage.
