The Revenge of the Bat
A New Year’s Eve Celebration with Johann Strauss II
A comic operetta performed in English
Production underwritten by Sterling “Stu” Ainsworth
On New Year’s Eve, Eisenstein is being forced to go to jail for punching a police officer. However, he decides to postpone jail for one night so that he can go to Prince Orlofsky’s lavish soirée with his friend Falke. Meanwhile, Rosalinda knows that Eisenstein is lying and follows him in disguise as a Hungarian countess. Adele, their maid, feigns an excuse to be released from work that night so that she can also go to the soirée disguised as a Russian opera singer named Olga. After many mistaken identities, Eisenstein attempts to seduce his own wife without knowing it is her. Much frivolity and many festivities behind them, the great farce ends up with a happy ending for all.
