The Vienna State Opera is an opera house and opera company based in Vienna, Austria. The 1,709-seat Renaissance Revival venue was the first major building on the Vienna Ring Road. It was built from 1861 to 1869 following plans by August Sicard von Sicardsburg and Eduard van der Nüll, and designs by Josef Hlávka. The opera house was inaugurated as the "Vienna Court Opera" (Wiener Hofoper) in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elisabeth of Austria. It became known by its current name after the establishment of the First Austrian Republic in 1921. The Vienna State Opera is the successor of the Vienna Court Opera, the original construction site chosen and paid for by Emperor Franz Joseph in 1861.
We bought standing tickets about 1 week before arriving in Vienna, for an afternoon. The sound quality was fantastic.
Finally came to the World Opera Center in Vienna, the whole city seems to be beating the notes on the corner of the street. Behind this magnificent European architecture is the Vienna State Opera, one of the world's four major opera houses, built for eight years. If you have music cells, it is a wonderful thing to listen to a concert inside.
For travelers, the National Opera may be less famous than the Golden Hall, but the Austrians do not think so. For them, the National Opera is the center of the world's opera, the pride of the whole of Vienna, listening to a concert in the Golden Hall, and enjoying an opera at the National Opera is just as beautiful. Maybe you don't know the opera like me, but you must have heard such famous operas as "The Wedding of Figaro" and "Don Juan", which were premiered at the Vienna State Opera. Traffic lights at the entrance of the National Grand Theatre, boys and boys, girls and girls, are set to express support for affirmation.
