January 6, 2018 — Opera Wilmington unveils its selected opera for the summer of 2018: Johann Strauss Jr.’s popular operetta Die Fledermaus. This bubbly comic work was composed in 1874 and has remained a favorite part of the operatic repertoire since then.
Opera Wilmington’s production will be performed July 20, 22, 27 and 29 in the Mainstage Theater in UNCW’s Cultural Arts Building. It features tenor Josh Collier, soprano Shannon Kessler Dooley, baritone John Dooley, soprano Michelle Lerch, tenor Melvin Ezzell and mezzo-soprano Cera Finney.
A gala precedes the opening performance; Opera Wilmington’s popular beer and food truck night will also return.
Tickets will go on sale in April online and through UNCW’s Kenan Box Office. Check back for details as they become available!
