flute in an intimate setting.
- On Saturday, 3 March, the Seven Hills Opera Company will present a concert version of the ever-popular operetta “Die Fledermaus”

confusions of all kinds provide a hilarious vehicle for some of the most captivating music ever written. The setting has been
updated from the elegance of 1870s Vienna to Prohibition Chicago of the 1920s. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for students;
they may be purchased by calling 782-5876 or at the door.
