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.
The story of Manon Lescaut by l’Abbé Prévost has inspired operas by Massenet and Puccini, a ballet choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan and a handful of films. This poster from the late 19th century advertises Puccini’s 'Manon Lescaut', which was first performed in 1893. Credit: Getty
