Die Fledermaus

Hello Everyone! I promised you two Strauss posts this week. Last Saturday I talked about the Theater an der Wien. Today it will all about Johann Strauss’s most famous operetta: Die Fledermaus, which premiered on this day back in 1874. Happy reading! xxx Ann Advertisements

Today marks the 150th anniversary of the first performance of Johann Strauss’ waltz An der schönen blauen Donau (By the beautiful blue Danube) and I thought that deserved a blog post.

Hello Everyone! Today’s the first of my Strauss works posts. I’m taking you back to 1870 when my favourite Strauss composition was performed for the first time. It’s not only going to be a small history lesson, but I’ll let you hear the composition too. Happy listening. xxx Ann
