Opera Bites, has again partnered with The Castlereagh Boutique Hotel to bring you an unforgettable evening of fully costumed popular opera complete with a bespoke menu and select fine wines to match. As you step through the doors of this breathtaking heritage listed dining room you’ll find yourself immersed in the world of operatic splendour.
Join Opera Bites in this hilarious re-telling of Johann Strauss’ wonderful operetta Die Fledermaus – and remember to wear your finest masquerade costume since you might be invited to participate! Gabriel Eisenstein has to go to gaol tonight. First though, there is Prince Orlofsky’s fabulous masked ball which he simply must attend. Among the (disguised) guests are his gaoler, Frank, his maid, Adele, and even his wife, Rosalinda. When he finally gets to gaol, he finds that someone else has been arrested in his place – someone who was at his house and in his dressing gown the previous evening!
