Then & Now 11/05: Vienna State Opera
Just two months before Victory in Europe day in 1945, the U.S. Army Air Force bombed the Vienna State Opera to rubble. It took ten years to rebuild. On this date, November 5th, 1955, the Vienna State Opera House reopened with Beethoven’s Fidelio.
And next Wednesday morning, that’s November 14th, already--- we’ll bring you a live performance from our Sarasota Performance and Broadcast studio as Russell Gant welcomes a string quartet made up of alumni from the Perlman Music Program-Suncoast to play music for you on the radio here on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9 at 11:00 AM
