Description: Artist: JULES CHÉRET (1836-1932) Size: 23 1/4 x 31 3/8 in./59 x 79.6 cm Imp. J. Chéret, Paris This poster possibly depicts one of the more complicated political twists in operetta history. Strauss's now-famous Die Fledermaus originally premiered in Vienna to a less-than-enthusiastic audience. Not until it traveled to Berlin did it become known as one of the greatest operettas ever written, at which point it was reintroduced in Vienna with unparalleled success. The next logical stop was Paris; however, the two original writers of the book -- Ludovic Halévy and Meilhac -- protested so much against this new production that the libretto had to be heavily edited by a third party before it could be performed. With the new title of La Tzigane, and a slightly altered plot line in which Rosalinde is now the disguised principal figure, Die Fledermaus was introduced to Paris as a slightly different operetta than it would ultimately come to be known. (opera)
