In Vienna - as elsewhere in Europe - "People's Opera" is no oxymoron, but instead a vital and appreciated part of local culture. I didn't get a chance to see a production here, but I intend to on my next visit. This is the place to see classic productions of Viennese operetta, particularly repertoire masterpieces by the Strauss family, Franz Lehar, or Sigmund Romberg. (They were renovating the Volkoper during the summer of 2003; it may no longer look like this!)
