245 Die Fledermaus
Strauss, J. (II)
Down 60. Lowest position since 2007. 1st of 2 entries for Strauss the Younger.
Die Fledermaus, Johann Strauss' most famous operetta, is primarily loved for what happens before anyone sets foot on the stage: the eight-minute Overture.
Translating literally as 'The Bat', Die Fledermaus was written over a two-year period from 1873 and is entirely frivolous in nature. Strauss himself was at the podium for the very first performance of Die Fledermaus.
