Johann Strauß steht der Titel eines k.u.k. Hofballmusikdirektors und das Herz der schönen Lilli Dumont in Aussicht und bringt aus diesem Grunde seine neue Operette „Die Fledermaus“ zur Aufführung. Doch die Ernennung wird aus Eifersuchtsgründen hintertrieben und die Premiere ein Misserfolg. Nach langen Verwicklungen wird „Die Fledermaus“ in Berlin ein Riesenerfolg. Endlich erhält Strauß seine Ernennungsurkunde und außerdem seine Lilli.  

Johann Strauss becomes the court ball director to the Kaiser’s cout and sets his sights to win the heart of the beautiful Lilli Dumont.  It is for this reason, that he allows his new operetta “Die Fledermaus” to be premiered.  His naming to the royal post leads to jealousy and results in the failure of his premiere.  After many complications, “Die Fledermaus” becomes a huge hit in Berlin.  It is only after this, that Strauss receives confirmation of his royal appointment and the heart of his Lilli.
