Abstract

Die Fledermaus was written in 1874 by Johann Strauss II. The opera takes place in Vienna, Austria in the 1890's. Gabriel von Eisenstein is sentenced to a fortnight in jail for a civil offense. A good friend, Dr. Falke, invites Eisenstein to a masquerade, suggesting he bring along his repeater stop-watch, which charms all the ladies, so he can accumulate pleasant memories to sustain him during his confinement in jail. Rosalinde, Eisenstein's wife, joins her maid Adele in a "bittersweet" farewell to Eisenstein before he leaves home for prison. Both Eisenstein and Rosalinde are secretly thrilled by the idea of being separated from one another.
