The dazzling, bright, cheerful operetta of Johann Strauss "The Bat" will be presented by the artists of the St. Petersburg Concert and the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra conducted by People's Artist of Russia Sergei Stadler at the Hermitage Theater.

Her inspiring music is characterized by inexhaustible melodic ingenuity and all is permeated with the Viennese waltz. It creates a special atmosphere of joy, anticipation of the holiday, expectation of new emotions ...

The plot was based on a supposedly real life event, when at a masquerade ball a man did not recognize his wife under a mask, and was fascinated by the "beautiful stranger". The plot is not new, but still relevant: at times, to be seen by her husband, a woman is forced to appear in a new mysterious image! And you need to have the wisdom of Rosalind to come out with dignity from this piquant situation.

The play is filled with funny moments, curiosities and misunderstandings, with which the characters cope in a Straussian way easily and cheerfully.

The scenic story of the "Bat" was not as easy as its content. The first performance took place on April 5, 1874 in Vienna, in the theater "An der Wien." This is amazing, but it was coldly received by that most exquisite Viennese audience, who idolized Strauss for waltzes. Operetta withstood only 17 performances, after which it was removed from the repertoire of the theater. However, in Berlin this work was a huge success, even more enthusiastically it was taken by the Parisians. In Paris they were selling not only the portraits of the composer, but the hats and gloves "a la Strauss" and ties "The Bat". Only after such a triumph in Europe, this operetta, once again set in Vienna, was adequately appreciated by the audience.

"The Bat" of Johann Strauss has long been on the same line with the best musical performances of the world. This is one of the most famous and brilliant operettas in the history of the genre. The outstanding conductors and musicians, among them Gustav Mahler, Bruno Walter, Felix Weingartner, Hans Knappertsbusch, Herbert von Karajan, continued to address and continue to address it.
