Die FledermausDVD - 2010 | German | Fullscreen.
Viennese actor, director, and theatre supremo, Otto Schenk had played the role of Frosch in Die Fledermaus 29 times on the stage before, on New Years Eve, 1979, he took the opportunity to show Viennese opera lovers his own, director's version. The premiere was acclaimed enthusiastically by the audience, creating something of a legend that has spread beyond Viennese opera-going circles -- in part because the televised broadcast has preserved it in its original form. Die Fledermaus broadcast from the Vienna State Opera on 31 December 1980, retrieved from the archives of Austrian Radio (ORF) and released on DVD, will surely cross all boundaries and win many friends.
