Mrs. Britten et al. in Vienna - 3 November, 1934
Early dinner & we go to opera at 7.0 to see Fledermaus (J. Strauss). Superb show - never have I heard an orchestra play like that - incredible rhythm, precision, & eagerness. And the singers too. Everything was worthy of the inimitable, delightful work - inspired from the beginning to the end. A marvellous introudction to the Wiener Oper.
