Chlestakows Wiederkehr, op. 149, (Khlestakov's Return) is an opera in three acts by Giselher Klebe. He also wrote the libretto, based on the play Der Revisor (The Government Inspector) by Nikolai Gogol. The work lasts about 70 minutes.

The opera premiered on 11 April 2008 at the Landestheater Detmold, Germany. It is Klebe's first and only comedic opera. His adaptation of the text is only loosely based on Gogol and adds a significant twist in the final scene.
