It’s a night of madcap comedy that’s been compared to The Carol Burnett Show combined with the elegance of the waltz when Nashville Opera presents the most popular comic operetta ever written, Die Fledermaus.
With music by the King of the Waltz, Johann Strauss, this French farce (by way of Vienna) features elaborate sets and costumes, split-second timing and an unforgettable night of glorious music and side-splitting comedy. Presented in the Polk Theater at TPAC on January 28 and 29 and February 4 and 5, with all performances beginning at 8 p.m. Tickets, from $17 to $75, are available by calling TicketMaster at 615-255-ARTS or Kristi Brobeck at Nashville Opera, 615-832-5242.
A limited number of “pay what you can” (minimum suggested $5) tickets and two-opera subscription tickets are also available by calling Nashville Opera. Student “rush” tickets for $10 each will be sold starting 45 minutes before curtain, if tickets are available.
One hour before curtain, Nashville Opera Artistic Director will give a preview of the evening’s production in the Polk Theater. The production will be sung in English with text projected above the stage. More information about Die Fledermaus, including free preview talks, is available by calling Nashville Opera at 615-832-5242.
