Jonny spielt auf
Description
Oskar Strnad's train station for the final scene of Jonny spielt auf (Jonny Strikes Up) at the Vienna Staatsoper. More than seventy theaters had produced this opera within three year's of its 1927 premiere. Scenes featured an onstage radio playing American jazz, a glacier, and the arrival of a locomotive at a train station. The opera itself revolved around a love triangle, an Amati violin, and a black singer. When the Nazis came to power, all performances of the opera were forbidden.
