The first performance of the greatest of operettas, Johann
Strauss's Die Fledermaus, was given in Vienna 100 years ago on 5 April 1874.
Strauss was already famous the world over as a conductor and composer of his own dance music. He had written over 350 waltzes, polkas and marches. By the time he was 40, his ambition was to succeed as an opera composer. Fledermaus was the third of his many operettas and was only a mild success: but with it Strauss achieved his masterpiece.
The programme includes recorded extracts from Die Fledermaus and other music by Strauss, performed by the VIENNA PHILHARMONIC and VIENNA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRAS, Conducted by WILLI BOSKOVSKY.

The great dread of the old and infirm used to be the work-house; more recently it has been the geriatric ward. But modern nursing techniques concentrate on educating and caring for the, elderly so that they can return to an active life in the community.
