Event details
 
Composer: Johann Strauss

Johann Strauss II was primarily known for his sublime waltzes, chiefly An der schönen blauen Donau (The Blue Danube) and from 1871 for his operettas too. Following two successful titles (Indigo und die vierzig Räuber, and Der Karneval in Rom), in 1874 he composed the operetta Die Fledermaus (The Bat), which alongside Der Zigeunerbaron (The Gipsy Baron, 1885) is the most celebrated operetta there is. The source for Die Fledermaus was Henri Meilhac and Ludevic Halévy’s French vaudeville play La réveillon, dating from 1872. The libretto was written by Karl Haffner and Richard Genée. 



The premiere took place at the Theater an der Wien on 5 April 1874 with Strauss himself conducting. A winning mixture of Viennese charm, humour and invincible joie de vivre are the virtues of the operetta that has established a firm position on stages worldwide, including opera houses, owing in large part to Gustav Mahler in 1894 in Hamburg and shortly afterwards also at the Hofoper in Vienna, to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Strauss’s artistic activities. Since that time, Die Fledermaus has been a cornerstone of every large opera house’s repertoire.



The opereta is staged in German original version and Czech and English surtitles are used in the performance.

The State Opera today

 

The State Opera (formerly the State Opera Prague, between 1948 and 1992 the Smetana Theatre, and originally the New German Theatre) has been a part of the National Theatre since 2012. The Opera and Ballet ensembles give repertory performances at the State Opera.

 

History

 

The Prague State Opera resides in the building which on January 5, 1888 was opened as a Prague German stage with the performance of Wagner’s opera, The Mastersingers of Nürnberg. In the 19th century, Prague Germans performed in the Estate’s Theater in alternation with a Czech company. Desire for their own theater led to negotiations in 1883 for the construction of a new theater building for the German Theater Association. Over the next three years, a blueprint was drawn up and handed over to the Vienna atelier of Fellner and Hellmer. Also sharing in the design was the architect of the Vienna Municipal Theater, Karl Hasenauer, while Prague architect Alfons Wertmüller took part in the construction. Financing came from private collections. With its spacious auditorium and neo-Rococo decoration, this theater building is among the most beautiful in Europe.
