Some curiosities accompany the history of the Vienna Opera House. The architect of the Renaissance design building would have committed suicide shortly after its inauguration in 1869, as the Viennese would have been disappointed with the final result. A second architect was hired to try to reverse the situation and meet the expectations of Vienna society, but he also would not have resisted the pressure and died of a heart attack.
In 1945, during the Second World War, a bomb caused serious damage to the building, which deeply affected the Viennese, as the attack was considered a symbolic aggression against the city. Ten years after the incident, the opera opened its doors again, recovered and equipped with the most advanced technologies of the time.
