After several years of reconstruction of the State Opera building, when on 31 December it belonged to New Year's Eve with Mozart at the Estates Theater, the fever of New Year's Eve returns to the State Opera. On the waves of the most beautiful opera and operetta melodies by such masters as Rossini, Donizetti, Johann Strauss, Franz Lehár or Paul Abraham, we will hopefully enter the new year 2022.
