Light Opera Works’ “Die Fledermaus” is Stunning

**** Recommended **** The Light Opera Works production of “Die Fledermaus” is stunning.  I’m not an opera aficionado, but I have friends, and they told me that this is the best production of “Die Fledermaus” they’ve seen.  It seemed to me that “Die Fledermaus” is a perfect blend of music, melodrama and farce – and it’s performed in English!  Opera is not my thing, and this was a little on the long side, but I still enjoyed it.  3 ½ Spotlights.

The Light Opera Works production of “Die Fledermaus” runs through January 1st at Cahn Auditorium, 600 Emerson Street, Evanston. “Die Fledermaus” has three acts; running time is 2 hours, 40 minutes, with two intermissions.  Remaining performances (there were only 6 scheduled) are Thursday, December 29th, Friday, December 30th, and Saturday, December 31st (New Year’s Eve) at 8:00 pm; Sunday, January 1st at 2:00 pm. Tickets start at $34. Free parking is available (evenings, weekends and holidays) in several nearby lots. FYI (847) 920-5360 or www.lightoperaworks.com.
