Die Fledermaus

[New York]: n.p., [1950].

Folio. Flexible dark brown boards with dark ivory tape to spine. 12-124, 134-196 pp.

Photographic copy of an unidentified printed piano-vocal score with printed manuscript text. . Text in English by H. Dietz and G. Kanin.

Occasional corrections and annotations in red and lead pencil.

A stage copy for the Metropolitan Opera revival of the work, purportedly from the library of Maria Jeritza.

Slightly worn and browned; some corners creased; occasional overpastes.

"Over the next quarter of a century [from 1885] a further 14 operettas and even a grand opera (Ritter Pásmán, 1892) cemented Strauss’s position as the leading light in ‘Silver Age’ Viennese operetta, though even in the composer’s lifetime only three of these found international success: Die Fledermaus (1874), Eine Nacht in Venedig (1883) and Der Zigeunerbaron." Peter Kemp in Grove Music Online.
