150 Years Wiener Staatsoper - The Anniversary Edition

The opera house on the Ring opened on 25 May 1869 with a festive performance of Mozart’s  Don Giovanni. C980120
It was an event that not only generated great excitement in Vienna, but also attracted considerable attention beyond the borders of the Hapsburg empire. Since then the opera house has remained in the public spotlight. For 150 years it has been an internationally important institution, and the affairs of Wiener Staatsoper are always also matters of public interest to an extent found in no other city in the world.
With this anniversary CD box set, school and online projects, streaming and the inclusion of the federal provinces, the opera house on the Ring is setting new boundaries; two exhibitions (at the opera house on the Ring and at the Theatre Museum) and a number of publications will focus on the history and current artistic events in the Vienna opera scene; and on the anniversary itself, the artists and the opera house itself will be honoured.
