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.
Jules Massenet isn’t the only composer to have spotted the operatic potential in the fairy-tale of Cinderella – Rossini’s 'La Cenerentola' also tackles the original rags-to-riches story. This poster advertises the premiere of the opera, at the Opéra Comique, Paris, in 1899. Image: Getty
