The 19th century was a golden age for music – and the posters advertising the productions of these now iconic operas are artworks in their own right. We've put together a gallery of some of the most eye-catching from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Henri Murger’s novel 'Scènes de la vie bohème' paints a picture of the comic and frequently squalid lives of a group of ‘bohemians’ in 1840s Paris. Puccini took a group of the characters and from it crafted one of the most beautiful and heart-breaking operas of all time. This poster dates from 1896 – the year the opera was premiered in Turin.
