Volksoper, Vienna

(viewed 698 times)
The people's opera house: fewer frilly bits, lower ticket prices, a few ballets with Queen scores to help balance the books, but the actual operas are performed to the highest standard (if the Magic Flute we went to was anything to go by). All photos by The BBG, but the ham-fisted stitching in the first one is all my own doing.
