Carlos Kleiber leads the Bavarian State Orchestra in this performance of Strauss’ Die Fledermaus, featuring Eberhard Wächter, Pamela Coburn, Brigitte Fassbaender, Josef Hopferwieser, and Wolfgang Brendel. One of the greatest conductors of our time, Carlos Kleiber’s appearances were legendary for their rarity and sublime quality, and few were recorded.

“An expert art restorer who clears away centuries of grime to reveal a painting in its pristine glory, Kleiber...strips away the varnish from some of music’s most tradition-encrusted masterworks to expose the vital creation lurking beneath.” - Time Magazine

Johann Strauss’s Die Fledermaus

Johann Strauss’s beloved work, one of the jewels of the Golden Age of Viennese operetta, has long transcended its origins and become a staple of the operatic repertoire. It was first staged at Vienna’s Theater an der Wien in 1874. Twenty years later, a production at the Hamburg Opera, led by its chief conductor Gustav Mahler, helped raise its artistic status, and many major opera companies have presented Die Fledermaus since, including the Met, where it was first seen in 1905. A new production featuring a revised English libretto opens on New Year's Eve 2013.
