After a rehearsal of Ouvertüre zu 'Die Fledermaus' (pronounced a bit like deflator mouse, german for: The Bat) one evening, I (as fan of everything Batman) couldn't help noticing the similarities between the 60's Batman theme by Neal Hefti and the little motif that you hear in the overture just after the first three notes. I got home and wrote out the start of 'Die Fledermaus' on musescore, but replaced that motif with the Batman theme. Then I tried tried to arrange a lot more of the overture trying to incorporate both songs. The hardest part was putting the Batman theme into 3/4 for the famous waltz section. It doesn't sound that great, but it was done quickly.

Enjoy! :)
