Irish National Opera presents Strauss’s Fledermaus

Tues 4 Feb 2025, 7:30pm

Mistaken identities and heavy flirting lead to a night of hilarity.


Man-about-town Eisenstein is supposed to report to jail, his wife Rosalinde will stay home for the night and their maid Adele needs to visit a sick aunt. Yet all three turn up in disguise at Count Orlofsky’s masked ball.

Famous for his “The Blue Danube” waltz,  Fledermaus is Johann Strauss’ most popular opera. Best-known for its tunefulness, upbeat musicality and Viennese lilt, the story has hilarious twists and turns, with disguises, double crossings and rivers of champagne.

Fledermaus  showcases outstanding Irish vocal talent with sopranos  Jade Phoenix  and  Sarah Shine  as Rosalinde and her maid Adele, and mezzo-soprano Sharon Carty as Prince Orlofsky. American tenor  Alex McKissick  sings Eisenstein and baritone  Ben McAteer (Don Pasquale 2023)  is Dr Falke. The ensemble cast also includes soprano  Megan O’Neill and tenors  Aaron O’Hare  and  William Pearson.  Fledermaus  is conducted by  Richard Peirson  and directed Davey Kelleher,  with set design by  Paul O’Mahony,  costume design by  Catherine Fay  and lighting design by Sinead McKenna.

Running time is 2 hours 30 mins including one interval.

Sung in English.

  • Jade Phoenix captured (...) vulnerability and her complete non-understanding of what was happening around her superbly.

  • Sarah Shine shows an incredible ease in the scenic play and a rock-solid vocal agility, crowned by sparkling highs
