The Vienna State Opera (Wiener Statsopeer) is a world-famous opera house dating back to the middle of the 19th century. The musicians in the Vienna Philharmonic are recruited from the musicians playing in the State Opera in Vienna. Several famous people have worked as directors of the opera, for example, Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Herbert von Karajan, and Karl Böhm.
Normally cheap tickets are made available just before the start of every performance of the state opera, but if you want a nice seat and some elegance, you should buy your ticket beforehand.
