Fledermaus MKE

June 4 - 20, 2021 | Socially Distanced and Digital Streaming | Cabot Theatre

Description

Based on the original Die Fledermaus, which premiered in 1874 Vienna, a team of local writers have exchanged champagne for beer in this witty, contemporary adaptation. Fledermaus MKE delivers all the opulent waltzes, mistaken identities, practical jokes, and plot twists that make this one of the world’s frothiest and most-per- formed operettas. The instantly recognizable and effervescent score of 1870s Vienna comes to life in modern-day Milwaukee, going beyond beer & bratwurst to capture our modern, dynamic and diverse city.

 

Original adaptation of the operetta by Johann Strauss II, Karl Haffner, and Richard Genée

(Performed in English)

Directed by Jill Anna Ponasik

Choreographed by Michael Pink
