Description Hide Description- Show Description+

Strauss’s comedy operetta Die Fledermaus is one of the most beloved works in the opera repertoire: A sparkling tale where everyone pretends to be something or someone they aren’t. Champagne forms almost the central character of this bubbly piece as we see the joys and pitfalls of too much drinking. We learn the fateful lesson-when you play a joke on a drinking buddy… you had better just watch out for his revenge. AND most of all remember “Friends don’t let friends dress up as bats”.

Each bead and charm of the Die Fledermaus Opera Bracelet represents a character or moment from the work. Some of the most important beads and charms are described below and you can see all of the symbolic descriptions on the spiral chart photo above or to the left.  Also, a story chart explaining the symbolism of the beads and charms accompanies every bracelet.  Click here to see the chart.

  • Rosalinde is represented by a lovely rose colored glass pearl reflective of her name.
  • Eisenstein who is so full of anger at so many things is a fiery faceted ruby glass. Falke the “Bat” is a shimmering black cat’s eye.
  • Sparkling Adele is a fluted iridescent bead; her famous laughter is symbolized by 3 small iridescent crystals.

Many appropriate charms enhance this piece:

  • Grapes indicate Alfred’s entreaties that Rosalinde should drink her cares away. An intricate antique style champagne bucket symbolizes Count Orlofsky’s fantastic party, while champagne glasses represent the giddy dancing crowd.
  • Other charms include Rosalinde’s mask, Eisenstein’s watch, the bat, and a champagne bottle.
  • Other special touches include a dove shaped bead to indicate Alfred serenading his lost dove and a “?” bead to symbolize Frank’s bafflement when Eisenstein presents himself for arrest.

    Fledermaus bracelet and Aida earrings

    Posted by Stephanie Fogarty on 12 30 2023

    I got my daughter the Fledermaus bracelet because she was learning "Chacon a son gout" and she loves it. I got the Aida earrings for me because I once sang Amneris in a local opera company many years ago,,
