Gabriel von Eisenstein is about to begin a prison sentence for a small indiscretion. Alfred, an opera singer is serenading Eisenstein's wife, Rosalinde (Joan Sutherland) outside the Eisenstein house. Adele, the maid has just received a letter from her sister, Ida, inviting her to Price Orlofsky's ball. Dr. Falke, preparing a surprise at the ball, convinces Eisenstein to come with him that night and delay his departure for jail until morning. Everyone departs for the ball in disguise ... not before Alfred is mistaken for Eisenstein and dragged off to prison! The comic confusion of infidelity and "mistaken" identity is topped off by Dr. Falke's surprise, a little comedy he arranged called "The Bat's Revenge."

Matthias Goerne hat seinen Schubert-Zyklus fortgesetzt und legt mit "Schwanengesang" seine sechste Schubert-CD vor. "Einen durchgängigen roten Faden besitzt Schuberts "Schwanengesang" nicht. Es sind sieben Lieder nach Gedichten von Ludwig Rellstab, sechs Lieder nach Gedichten von Heinrich Heine und eines nach der Textvorlage von Johann Gabriel Seidl. Und doch ist es eine stimmige Aneinanderreihung von musikalischen Preziosen der Romantik. Jedes einzelne Lied bietet ein packendes Stimmungsbild, ob es nun von Schönheit, Träumen, Sehnsüchten, Wirrnissen, Enttäuschung, Verzweiflung, von der Liebe oder vom Tod erzählt. Und eigentlich ist in jedem Lied von alldem etwas enthalten. Und genau das macht aus einem Schubert-Lied, mag es auch noch so kurz sein, eine Kostbarkeit. Beim empfindsamen Hörer geht da eine Türe auf - oft nur einen Spaltbreit - und er hat doch das Gefühl, die ganze Welt passte hindurch. Matthias Goerne und seinem Begleiter Christoph Eschenbach gelingt es in ihrer Neueinspielung des "Schwanengesangs" auf atemberaubende Weise, genau dies zum Ausdruck zu bringen. Sie finden stets den richtigen Ausdruck, die richtigen Farben, das richtige Tempo, um Schuberts romantische Seelendramatik auf packende Weise darzustellen" (br.de)
