U of I Opera Workshop Presents ‘Die Fledermaus’ March 1-2

February 21, 2024

MOSCOW, Idaho — University of Idaho’s Lionel Hampton School of Music Opera Workshop will present Johann Strauss Jr.’s “Die Fledermaus” at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 1-2, at the Hartung Theater, 625 Stadium Drive, Moscow.

“Die Fledermaus,” or “The Bat” in English, is regarded as one of the most famous and enduring operettas, known for its lively waltzes, comedic plot and memorable melodies. Set in 19th century Vienna, the plot revolves around themes of disguise, mistaken identity and romantic entanglements.

“Be prepared for a hint of risqué charm that might just leave you blushing from the scandal that unfolds,” said director Stefan Gordon, assistant professor of voice at U of I. “But, fear not, the true culprit is none other than the effervescent champagne.”

The director will give a 15-minute pre-show talk at 7 p.m. March 1 in the Hartung lobby.

The opera will be sung in German with English supertitles and dialogue and showcases the collaboration of LHSOM and the Department of Theatre Arts, accompanied by Strauss’ unforgettable melodies played by the U of I orchestra.

Tickets, which are $10 for students and seniors and $12 for general admission, can be purchased at or at the door (card only).
