Semperoper - Dresden Location Theaterplatz 2 - 01067 Dresden Allemagne

During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Dresden, which became known as the « Florence of the Elbe, » became a primordially important intellectual centre and its orchestra, which developed a new virtuostic instrumental style, spread its influence throughout Europe. Under the influence of Weber, Dresden actively participated in the renaissance of German opera.

For instance, the Opera House built by Gottfried Semper in 1841 welcomed Wagner's first successes in his attempt to renovate German lyrical art; RIENZI, THE FLYING DUTCHMAN, and TANNHÄUSER. But Wagner was also a political agitator and he was forced to leave the city after the 1848 revolution.

In 1858, the orchestra organized its first regular season of symphonic concerts for the public. Following a fire in 1869, Semper erected a second concert hall which was subsequently destroyed, along with the rest of the splendid baroque city, during the devastating bombings of 1945. In 1985, the reopening of one of Europe’s most beautiful opera houses

Synopsis

Die Fledermaus

The wonderful operetta of Die Fledermaus, by the Austrian composer Johann Strauss, is a classic work of timeless beauty. Known in the original German libretto by Carl Haffner and Richard Genee as 'die Fledermaus' or 'the bat' in English, it was first performed at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna in 1874. Since then it has been produced across the world with showings in London, Paris, Munich and New York all following the initial popular reception. Indeed, all of the leading opera houses in the world hold the work as something of an essential in their catalogues.

HISTORY
The light opera of La chauve souris was inspired by the central themes and comic potential of identity and disguise. The lengths that certain people will go to in order to protect their freedom is brilliantly portrayed, with rousing song pieces formulating the need for expressions of justice and loyalty. The title of La chauve souris refers to a bat costume that lies at the heart of the central character's tomfoolery.

Act 1
Performed in the apartment of Gabriel von Eissenstin, the first act tells of his being summoned to spend eight days in jail for insulting an official. He decides to instead travel upon his friend Falke's invitation to a ball being held by Prince Orlofsky in the countryside. Eissenstein's wife is then visited by her former lover Alfred. When the jailer Frank arrives to take Eissenstein away, Alfred pretends to be the disgraced lord and serve his time so as not to arouse suspicion of an affair.

Act 2
Set in the summer house of Orlofsky, this act revolves around the further deceptions and deceits created by the lead characters. It transpires that Falke's invitation was a ruse to get revenge on Eissenstein for leaving him as the object of ridicule the previous year. He had been left drunk in the city dressed up as a bat (explaining the opera's title). With all of the characters using some form of disguise, the ball is a perfect comedic piece of changing structure and elements.

Act 3
After the previous night's wild party, all of the central characters find themselves in the offices of Governor Frank. In full realisation of her husband's deception, Rosalinde wants to begin divorce proceedings. Amidst various jail house lock-ups, Falke arrives with every guest of the ball. Making the declaration that the whole performance has been revenge for the bat costume fiasco, the situation is peacefully resolved. Eissenstein blames champagne for his various acts of wrong-doing and is sentenced to serve the full term of imprisonment.
