Back to the conclusion of the first act of the operetta "Die Fledermaus": Eisenstein has taken leave of his wife Rosalinde, and goes off looking forward to the Prince's masked ball. Alfred waits briefly until Eisenstein is gone and takes the opportunity to make romantic overtures to Rosalinde. But then prison director Frank arrives and cordially invites Eisenstein - in reality Alfred, who is forced to pose as Rosalinde's husband, in order not to embarrass her - to come with him: to the prison which Frank calls his "Mein sch÷nes grosses Vogelhaus" (beautiful big birdhouse).

Die Fledermaus (The Flittermouse or The Bat, sometimes called The Revenge of the Bat) is an operetta composed by Johann Strauss II to a German libretto by Karl Haffner [de] and Richard GenÚe. The original literary source for Die Fledermaus was Das Gefńngnis (The Prison), a farce by German playwright Julius Roderich Benedix that premiered in Berlin in 1851. On 10 September 1872, a three-act French vaudeville play by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic HalÚvy, Le RÚveillon, loosely based on the Benedix farce, opened at the ThÚÔtre du Palais-Royal. Meilhac and HalÚvy had provided several successful libretti for Offenbach and Le RÚveillon later formed the basis for the 1926 silent film So This Is Paris, directed by Ernst Lubitsch.

Meilhac and HalÚvy's play was soon translated into German by Karl Haffner (1804ľ1876), at the instigation of Max Steiner, as a non-musical play for production in Vienna. The French custom of a New Year's Eve rÚveillon, or supper party, was not considered to provide a suitable setting for the Viennese theatre, so it was decided to substitute a ball for the rÚveillon. Haffner's translation was then passed to the playwright and composer Richard GenÚe, who had provided some of the lyrics for Strauss's Der Karneval in Rom the year before, and he completed the libretto.

The operetta premiered on 5 April 1874 at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna and has been part of the regular repertoire ever since.
