DIE FLEDERMAUS

Operetta in three acts - 1874

Composer Johann Strauß. Libretto by Richard Genée after the comedy "Le Réveillon" by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy in the German adaption by Karl Haffner.
In German language. Without surtitles due to the stage design..

Loyalty, betrayal, love and lies. Anyone who thinks he can patch up a burnt-out marriage with a little hanky-panky on the side should make sure he doesn't wind up with his own wife. Comes the dawn: behind bars.  This operetta is "the" absolutely valid masterwork on the topic: "fun society".
