German Corner

DIE FLEDERMAUS

Prosit Neujahr! (Happy New Year!) I hope everyone had a relaxing and well deserved break over the holidays. Silvester is what Germans call the New Year’s celebration. There are many traditions connected with celebrating Silvester, but did you know that Austrians meet the new year with a performance of “Die Fledermaus” (the Bat) operetta by the Austrian composer Johann Strauss Jr.? Musical sentiments like “Glücklich ist, wer vergisst, was doch nicht zu ändern ist…” (“Happy is he who forgets what can’t be changed…”) and the story of a masquerade ball make this popular Operetta appropriate for the New Year. Besides the annual New Year’s Day performance, both Vienna’s Volksoper and Staatsoper offer more performances of the most popular of Strauss’ operettas in January. I was lucky enough to attend a performance of “Die Fledermaus” in West Berlin in 1987. Why not include “Die Fledermaus” as one of your New Year’s traditions? Watch it while eating some “Pfannkuchen” (pancakes). You will meet the new year German style! Bis nächste Woche!
