Skagit Opera presents "Die Fledermaus," a story of jilted lovers, revenge, seduction and mistaken identity in old Vienna, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb 28 and March 7; and at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 2 and March 9 at Skagit Valley College's McIntyre Hall, 2501 E. College Way, in Mount Vernon.

Written by Johann Strauss, the "Waltz King," the opera features lighthearted yet sophisticated music full of lilting melody. "Die Fledermaus" brings back two of Skagit Opera's star sopranos; Christina Kowalski, who performed the company's production of "Tosca," and Megan Chenovick, who performed the title role in "Lucia di Lammermoor."

Free pre-performance lectures begin 30 minutes before curtain. Tickets, $25 to $59, are at mcintyrehall.org and 360-416-7727.

There will be a gala opening night dinner preceding the performance Friday, Feb. 28. Cost: $75 pre-paid.
