Both architects died before seeing the building finished (van der Nüll committed suicide and his companion Sicardsburg died shortly after a heart attack). Other renowned artists participated in the interior decoration, particularly the painter Moritz von Schwind, who painted the famous foyer frescoes and the terrace. The theater was inaugurated on May 25, 1869 with Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni.
