The height of artistic and musical refinement, this building improves the happiness of all classes.
This impressive setting for musical performances allows the audience to delight in novel
entertainments, and admire the good taste of the house’s patrons. Music is open to
everyone and as a result the happiness of all classes is improved, although only the
upper classes can afford the best seats and boxes. Little expense is spared on a grand
opera house, particularly in the public areas visited by the important members of the
audience. This prestigious building markedly improves the town wealth in its region.
Many rulers in the 18th Century acted as a patron of the arts, and opera in particular.
Apart from being fabulously and famously expensive (therefore demonstrating the
patron’s wealth), the musical form was also growing in popularity and quality. Music
advanced tremendously, with works from composers of genius such as Mozart, Handel
and Scarlatti. Composers dedicated their works to great men, carried away by
admiration or in the hope of patronage. The ideals of the French Revolution inspired
Beethoven when he was writing his third symphony, the “Eroica”, but after Napoleon
crowned himself Emperor, Beethoven furiously scratched out the dedication to him.
