Mistaken identities, scandalous love interests, absolute chaos, and hysterical outcomes. Set in the late 1930s in Vienna before World War II, <em>Die Fledermaus</em> follows Gabriel von Eisenstein and his friend, Dr. Falke, through a high-class, champagne-fueled evening before Eisenstein must report to prison. With the world around them in turmoil, Falke persuades Eisenstein to attend a debaucherous soiree—hosted by the Russian Prince Orlofsky—with the complex but light-hearted plan to exact revenge on his friend.
