Opera Theater’s ‘Fledermaus’
presented with a 1920s twist

   If thoughts of opera conjure up images of barrel chests, breastplates and spears, think again. This time, think fishnet stockings and feather boas. Think fun and laughter.
   The upcoming Temple Opera Theater production of Die Fledermaus promises to adjust any such preconceived perceptions of what opera is all about.
   At the hands of music director and conductor John Douglas, stage director Laura Johnson and producer Jamie Johnson, the Opera Theater’s Fledermaus leapfrogs from 19th-century Vienna to America in the 1920s, somewhere in an unspecified urban location.

Starring in Temple Opera Theater’s unconventional staging of Strauss’ “Die Fledermaus” are (from left) Tatyana Rashkovsky, a master's of music candidate in opera performance, in the role of Rosalinda; Rachael Sutliff, a master’s of music candidate in vocal performance, as Prince Orlovsky; and Mary Wojciechowski, a second-year master’s in music student in vocal performance, as Adele.
