WORLD CLASS OPERA
FOR FREE

Europe's most famous opera house,
the Vienna State Opera,
makes its world class performances
available to music lovers for FREE
(weather permitting.)

Each evening performance is shared live
by video feed during the summer season al fresco,
outside in front of the opera building.
Seats are provided in front of a giant video screen
and amazing high fidelity sound system.
(The evening's program is handed out,
and translation subtitles included on screen.)
And it's all free!

This appreciative audience (your humble blogger included)
enjoyed Verdi's Don Carlo!

If that's not enough,
there's always serious classical music
street performers through the city.

Vienna is a city of music, indeed.

Bravo!
