I was given a list from a friend of what to see on my quick trip to Vienna. The Opera house being one of them. I was sad to find it was closed on Friday. I was able to get this photograph of the main lobby. While I was inside by the ticket office I found out that you could get standing room only tickets that night if you stood in line. I arrived 1 hr before the Opera was to begin and stood in a long line. I found out the standing room only was only 4 euros. A real bargain! My first night at the Opera. It was a French Opera set in the French Revolution. At the post where you stand there is a small individual monitor that translates the Opera in English and in German. The set design and costumes were unbelievable!! It was an amazing night to experience a part of the Viennese culture!
