Toronto's indie opera darlings, Opera 5, present the wildest party of the year! The socialite heiress Orlofsky and her BFF Pearle Harbour are hosting an evening of dancing, gambling and debauchery, and audiences get to take part in all the fun. The spectacle took over the 918 Bathurst Cultural Centre to create truly 360-degree show, featuring drag, burlesque, ariel silks, beer-sponsorship, and more!
This immersive and outrageous adaptation of Johann Strauss' classic operetta was the surprise smash of the season.

"Opera 5 brings us a Die Fledermaus for the 21st century. This was one of the most fun nights I've had at the opera in a while. Outlandish characters in an outlandish plot with outlandish costumes made for an unforgettable ride through Johann Strauss' perennial classic. When you get the chance to use a drag queen of Pearle Harbour's charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent, you know you showed up at the right party."
