Trivia

Die Fledermaus is frequently alluded to in comic books, TV shows, and movies featuring American pop culture icon Batman, most often by having Bruce Wayne "just happen" to be watching or listening to this opera. Both Die Fledermaus and Batman are men dressed as Chiropters, and both have a co-star named Alfred. In this production there is an astounding coincidence which further cements the connection between the two bats: Alfred is played by Dennis O'Neill, who has almost the same name as legendary Batman comic book editor Denny O'Neil.

Trinke, liebe, trinke schnell!

If you ever want to introduce someone to opera, show them this. It's certain to hold their interest and make them hungry for more. Sometimes it's sung, sometimes it's spoken, sometimes it's in German, sometimes French, or Italian, or English... Keep up if you can! It's fast-moving and downright hysterical.

Keep an eye out for a particularly delightful pair of performers during the cabaret in Act Two... No, I'm not talking about the dancers.
