This quintessential Viennese operetta deserves to be enjoyed throughout the year, and not just on New Year's Eve. Eisenstein evades a summons to serve a brief prison sentence by accepting Falke's invitation to Prince Orlowsky's party. His wife's former beau Alfred is escorted to jail in his place, having been mistakenly identified as Eisenstein. At the party everyone plays an assumed part, and later must share in the quilt of deception. A drunken prison guard, a stolen watch ... somehow everything is worked out in the end and the operetta's motto "Glücklich ist, wer vergisst, was doch nicht zu ändern ist" ("happy are they who forget what can't be changed") rings true.

In German language with English surtitles

Werkbeschreibung

Vor einigen Jahren auf dem Schönbrunner Maskenball. Als Gäste waren u. a. Gabriel von Eisenstein und sein Freund Dr. Falke eingeladen. Eisenstein, als Schmetterling verkleidet, spielte Falke, der als Fledermaus ging, damals einen solchen Streich, dass dieser zum Gespött des ganzen Bezirks wurde. Was sich in den folgenden drei Akten der Fledermaus ereignet, ist die inszenierte Rache einer Fledermaus.
