The 150th anniversary of the Vienna State Opera is marked on May 25, 2019

On May 25, 1869, the grand opening of the theater building of the Vienna State Opera was held in the presence of the imperial couple Franz Joseph and Elizabeth. The opening ceremony was marked by the performance of the opera "Don Giovanni" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
"Don Giovanni" is the greatest opera ever written. At least three persons, whose opinion in this area should be taken into consideration, wholeheartedly supported this thesis. They were Gioachino Rossini Charles Gounod and Richard Wagner.

The Vienna State Opera is one of the most prominent opera centers in the world. Although the theater offers its listeners an extremely diverse repertoire, it is deservedly considered the keeper of the best traditions of the Viennese classical school, and above all - the traditions that were originated by Mozart.

Especially for the date, the Museum Collection prepared musical selection dedicayed to the greatest of the Mozart’s operas - "Don Giovanni".

The reviews about the history of the Vienna State Opera creation and the opera “Don Giovanni” by Mozart are in the section ARTICLES and REVIEWS.
