The Vienna State Opera House has a history dating back to the mid-19th century. Work commenced on the building in 1861 and was completed in 1869. It was originally called the Vienna Court Opera. In 1920, with the replacement of the Habsburg Monarchy by the First Austrian Republic, it was renamed the Vienna State Opera. The members of the Vienna Philharmonic are recruited from its orchestra.
