The bat serves only as the symbol of revenge that befalls the main character.

Miss Stefanizzi says Ralf Weikert will conduct the performances in Mr. Welser-Moest's place. A DVD will feature Mr. Welser-Moest because there was enough material from the two performances he conducted to fill out the film, she says. …
