A new production from Bayerische Staatsoper, featuring Diana Damrau and Georg Nigl, and conducted by Vladimir Jurowski. Stage director Barrie Kosky comes up with a new look for the “operetta of all operettas” and focuses on its morbid side. The scene is Vienna, city of the golden operetta era, where Die Fledermaus celebrated its world premiere at the Theater an der Wien in 1874.

To take revenge on his friend Eisenstein, Dr Falke, alias the bat, orchestrates an elaborate charade with Prince Orlofsky. A marquis and a chevalier, a countess and budding artists meet here for a raucous party. Glasses clink, relationships are strained, there is loving, lying and dancing. They party ‘til the cows come home, always believing: “Happy are those who forget ...” The revenge of the bat becomes a nightmare for Gabriel von Eisenstein and many others. A society, an entire city dances towards the abyss.

"At the moment, there’s only one [director] who can pull off such an over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek, glitzy-glamorous evening. [...] Kosky can do it. A frenzy, as expected. [...] This performance was just what we needed." (merkur.de)
