Johann Strauss’s bubbly tale of revenge and temptation. Spend a riotous evening in the company of Gabriel von Eisenstein, his beautiful wife Rosalinda, her besotted lover Alfred, the pert and saucy parlor-maid Adele, and the wily Doctor Falke, as they confuse and amuse themselves and us in a sophisticated hide-and-seek game of mistaken identity that will spin you from the fabulously licentious ball of the eccentric Russian Prince Orlofsky to a night in jail on charges of disorderly conduct. A night of Viennese love, laughter and levity, where Champagne is King! Directed by Barbara Heroux; Conducted by George Cleve.
