• From the Carnegie Hall Archives: Opening Night 1891

    On May 5, 1891, Carnegie Hall opened its doors for the first time, ushering in a new standard for the presentation of live music and public events in New York City.

    Now 120 years later—in the first of a new series—Carnegie Hall's Museum Director and Archivist Gino Francesconi provides a fascinating and entertaining insight into the Hall's first Opening Night, using some of the earliest and rarest artifacts from the Archives.
