Die Fledermaus (The Bat) is a masterpiece in operetta of Johann Strauss II, the King of the Waltz. The pleasure-loving, yet satirical story and the wonderful music, including fascinating waltzes and polkas, splendid arias, delightful ensembles, and the rich finale, excite the audience. The baton of Johannes Wildner, the leading conductor for Strauss’s music, adds to the color of the direction by Heinz Zednik, the tenor who is a real actor and the pride of Vienna, to deliver a highly artistic performance to the audience.
Adele, a maid for the Eisensteins, is feeling restless because she has been invited to a party to be given by Prince Orlofsky. Eisenstein is infuriated as he is going to prison, but Dr. Falke secretly suggests that they both should go to the party. Eisenstein’s wife, Rosalinde, also arrives at Orlofsky’s party masked. Various guests gather with different intentions in their minds. Falke whispers to the prince, “I will show you a piece of entertainment entitled ‘Revenge by the bat.’”
