Vintage Belgian poster for a charity concert performing Bizet's "ode-symphonie" Vasco de Gama. This blend of opera, symphony, and oratorio was a popular music format during the Romantic era, where historical and frequently eastern subject matter was explored in a poetic, dramatic manner. The ode-symphony's flair for drama is mirrored in the poster illustration, the female portrait on the left-hand side bursting with splendor.
