Vintage Opera News - December 5, 1959

Opera News - December 5, 1959
Volume 24, Number 5
Published by the Metropolitan Opera Guild

This 1959 issue of Opera News celebrates the first Metropolitan Opera broadcast of Johann Strauss’ The Gypsy Baron, with cover artwork by Robert C. Johnson depicting a few of its more colorful characters.

Each of these vintage Opera News magazines measures 7” wide and 10” tall and is roughly 32-36 pages in length. Lovingly preserved, each is a fascinating time capsule of what was happening at the Met Opera during its publication. They include interesting opera analysis, multiple black and white photos, and charming ads from the era. However, with the gorgeous covers you may just want to frame it to use as unique opera decor!
