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.
This stunning 1904 poster shows a moment from the tear-jerking last scene from Puccini’s opera. 'Madame Butterfly' tells the story of the doomed marriage between a young Japanese woman, Cio-Cio-San (known as Butterfly) and an American Lieutenant called B.F. Pinkerton. Image: Alamy
