The World's Greatest Music
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.
Bizet’s 1875 opera about the fiery gypsy woman, Carmen, has some of the most famous tunes in all of opera – from Carmen’s own Habanera (“L’amour est un oiseau rebelle”) to the Toreador Song. This eye-catching poster dates from 1939. Image: Alamy
