The Vienna State Opera House happens to be an Opera house that is situated in Austria. Originally it was termed as Vienna court Opera. The work began in this building in 1861 and it went on to finish in 1869. The building was not considered to be very popular for the public and it was termed more of a private residence which was destroyed in World War 2. Towards the end of the war, fire engulfed this opera by American forces and a significant portion of this opera house was damaged.
The reconstruction phases of the Vienna State opera house
A decision was made to rebuild the opera house as it had been in its original state. The main experts who were involved in this work were Ernst Kolb.
Due to the appalling conditions which went on to exist at the Theatre An Der Wien, the opera house thought on the lines of raising significant amount of money, so that the reconstruction work of the Opera house began speeding up. A lot of private donations began pouring in along with donations of building material of the Soviets who had a strong liking for the reconstruction of the Opera. The mayor had gone on to place donation boxes in the whole of Vienna so that people could contribute.
In the modern days
The opera house is open to kids and a lot of plays have taken place here. For boys and girls there is a school between the ages of 8 to 14 years. This takes place in the afternoon after regular school hours. An introductory session on how to become opera singers is illustrated in details.
In 2009, the 140th anniversary of the Vienna opera house was marked. To celebrate this milestone a new idea to draw in new crowd emerged. A gigantic 50 square screen was placed to the side of the opera house, that went on to face Karntnerstrasse. This new mode of entertainment brought forth excitement to many tourists along with locals who soaked in this cultural event.
