Mistaken identities, love affairs, and lighthearted revenge are all tied together with the intoxicating rhythm of the Viennese waltz. Johann Strauss's beloved operetta Die Fledermaus is both nostalgic and progressive. It captures the charm of cosmopolitan Vienna and imagines what would happen if for just one night, we were free of the bonds of our social status.
Sung in German with supertitles and English dialogue.
