60 E. Balbo, Chicago

 
Johann Strauss’ classic Viennese operetta is a mixture of comedy and colorful characters. Spend a riotous evening in the company of Gabriel von Eisenstein, his beautiful wife Rosalinda, her besotted lover Alfred, the pert and saucy parlor-maid Adele, and the wily Doctor Falke, as they confuse and amuse themselves and us in a sophisticated hide-and-seek game of mistaken identity.

Sung in English, this production features a full orchestra and chorus, glamorous costumes and, of course, champagne! Join conductor Steven Mosteller, director Harry Silverstein, and the students of DePaul Opera Theatre at what is sure to be a truly splendid party.

Discounted tickets are $5 – $20 for DePaul Employees, Students and Alumni. Students receive 2 FREE tickets at the door, the day of the performance.
