Bel Canto

Bel Canto is an homage to the Vienna State Opera on its 150th anniversary. It presents the 150 most important and best known singers, the stars in the history of the “House on the Ring”– from Luciano Pavarotti to Anna Netrebko. Lois Lammerhuber, one of the best photographers of our time, devoted months to creating outstanding portraits of the artists. In his text, Dominique Meyer, Director of the Vienna State Opera, reflects on the significance of these stars for the world of opera.

A special edition of this book was offered as a souvenir to the gentlemen visitors of the Vienna Opera Ball 2019.
