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.
Massenet’s opera based on Goethe’s hugely popular book 'The Sorrows of Young Werther' was premiered in Vienna in 1892. The opera follows the book’s story of the hopeless love of Werther for Charlotte. This elegant poster advertises the French premiere, which took place the following year. Image: Alamy
