Rarely has a work struck Vienna with such immediacy as Johann Strauss’ »Die Fledermaus«. After its premiere in 1874, the piece was frequently performed, in 1894 court opera honours were bestowed upon it, after which it has remained in the repertoire almost continuously. Ever since 1900, it is nearly always performed on New Year's Eve. With a happy lightheartedness, the most famous of all operettas takes a suggestive look at erotic and social disguise beneath the facade of the 19th-century bourgeoisie – dancing and political and social commentaries included. The always prominent »surprise guest« in the second act of the State Opera’s New Year’s Eve performance is also steeped in tradition: this year, it is soprano Asmik Grigorian, who will make her debut in September in the »Madama Butterfly« premiere.
