The Metropolitan Opera’s 2023-24 season continues with an operetta that’s been heard on countless festive occasions – and is celebrating a birthday of its own: Johann Strauss Junior’s Die Fledermaus. This broadcast celebrates the 150th anniversary of Strauss’s effervescent favorite in a performance from 1986 starring Kiri Te Kanawa – who recently marked the 50th anniversary of her Met debut. Te Kanawa leads a glorious cast, including Håkan Hagegård, Judith Blegen, and Tatiana Troyanos, in this romantic romp about pranks, disguises, and the power of champagne. Jeffrey Tate conducts the infectious, toe-tapping score.
