On Saturday, December 11th, 2021, at 6.30pm, at Opera House, we invite you to the performance with the most sparkling and beloved operetta known in history: "The Bat" by Johann Strauss. Composed by Johann StraussJr. and librettists Karl Haffner and Richard Genee, after the vaudeville entitled "Le Reveillon" by Henry Melhac and Ludovic Halévy, the operetta "The Bat", nicknamed "the queen of Viennese operetta", was performed for the first time at the Theater an der Wien, in 1874.
The action in this play takes place in Vienna on a New Year's Eve night. Dr. Falke prepares a prank on his friend Gabriel Eisenstein, entitled "The Bat's Revenge". In the process of it, Eisenstein falls in love with his own wife, Rosalinda, disguised as a mysterious Hungarian countess, at Prince Orlofsky's ball he becomes friends with the director of the prison, where he must serve an eight-day sentence, he flirts with his maid Adela, who, in her turn, is disguised as an artist invited to the ball of the same young and rich prince. The humor and the rhythm of this brilliant operetta unfolds with the speed and energy released by the explosion of a bottle of champagne opened on a New Year's Eve night!
