Austria - Vienna State Opera (Wiener Staatsoper)
This sheetlet of Austrian stamps were issued to commemorate the Centenary of the famous State Opera. The Vienna State Opera (Wiener Staatsoper) is an opera house – and opera company – with a history dating back to the mid-19th century. It is located in the centre of Vienna, Austria. It was originally called the Vienna Court Opera (Wiener Hofoper); in 1920, it was renamed the Vienna State Opera. The members of the Vienna Philharmonic are recruited from its orchestra.
