      Die Fledermaus or The Bat by Johann Strauss wings its way to Chicago once again to hover over the stage of Lyric Opera.  Today’s program offers selections from this most sparkling of operettas with recordings by Thomas Hampson, Jerry Hadley and Karita Mattila among others.  Austrian tenor Richard Tauber, one of operetta’s most renowned interpreters will also be heard.
