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.
