This two act ballet was firstly staged in 1979, it isbased on the “operetta” by Johann Strauss Jr with the music arranged by Douglas Gamley. Bella, married to Johann, is discreetly courted by Ulrich, a family friend. She istroubled by her husband’s pleasure-seeking at night. Every night, Johann puts on a bat’s wings and flies off to have fun the city. With the help of Ulrich, Bella, turns into a mysterious and wonderful creature of the night and follows her husband in his nocturnal escapades, eventually she seduces him in disguise. She finds him after a night of debauchery in a prison and finally manages to cut his wings and to bring him back home. But despite the couple returning to a normal life, a mad waltz explodes in the finale. It is a scene that seems to celebrate enjoyment as the true art of living, as if dancing is the only salvation.
