Original silkscreen poster, printed by San Francisco Opera (publisher), San Francisco, California, United States 1996. Condition: Near Mint (A) , not backed.
Sheet size: 26 H. X 18 W.
This poster was published by the San Francisco Opera for its 1996 performance of Strauss's Die Fledermaus. The production ran for 5 days culminating on New Year's Eve which was dubbed as "Prince Orolfsky's Masquerade Ball". A great evening for "seduction, trickery and betrayal" is promised "with a lot of singing and dancing in between".

The poster design is a tantalizing reimagination of Cheret's "La Diaphane" featuring Sarah Bernhardt. The coquettish pose remains as eye-catching today as it was 100 years earlier.
