Music strikes up at Venice opera
By David Willey for the BBC website

It has taken eight years to get the opera house up and running
La Fenice, Venice's historic opera house, has reopened with a gala performance of Giuseppe Verdi's opera La Traviata.

The first performance of La Traviata took place in the same theatre 151 years ago.

And Maria Callas sang the title role in the show, one of Verdi's most popular operas, at the 100th anniversary performance of La Traviata at the Fenice back in 1953.
