VIENNA — The Vienna State Opera scored a new profit record this season, raking in over 31.3 million euros, with average attendance at over 98 percent, the venerable house announced Tuesday.
A total 588,990 visitors attended over 360 opera, ballet and children's opera performances from September to June, the Vienna Opera said in statement.
In 2010-2011, profits stood just above 29.5 million euros.
The old opera house has seen a revival since the arrival in 2009 of French director Dominique Meyer, who has rejuvenated the repertoire and brought the long-neglected ballet out of the shadows.
