Going to the opera is one of my favorite hobbies and what better place to do so than the Wiener Staatsoper? I consider myself a regular visitor and by far I have seen a great variety of operas. For the longest time, however, I was not able to go an see a performance (half a year if I have to be precise) but on Sunday I was back at my second home for I Puritani.
On Friday I had the chance to go and see Fidelio at the Vienna state opera for the 3rd time already. The first time I have seen the opera was in Volksoper back in 2015. I was pleasantly surprised with the amazing performance of Peter Seiffert and Camilla Nylund. If you are not familiar with the opera life in Vienna this is one of the most loved operas that the Viennese have the pleasure to see. As you can imagine the room is always full and at the end of each aria you would always hear the loud “Bravo!” and why not accompanied by a whistle or two. Every time I have been at the Vienna state opera for this performance it is the same procedure.
