1940s St. Louis Municipal Opera Seating Chart and Ads

1940s St. Louis Municipal Opera Seating Chart and Ads

This set of scans of the 1943 St. Louis Municipal Opera Theater Program includes the seating chart and seat prices in an advertisement for C.L. Finot Inc. Concessionaires. It looks like during WWII, The Muny seated 10,000 people and you could get front section box seats for two dollars, or sit in the back section for 25 cents. This was my favorite page in this set.

The three other pages include more of the program for The Great Waltz, and advertisements for St. Louis businesses including:

  • Dr. Pepper
  • Vigor Frozen Dog Food
  • Emanelo Cigars from Moss & Lowenhaupt Cigar Co
  • The New Crown Room at the Kingshighway Hotel
  • Echolake Ranch
  • Von Hoffman Press
  • Mountain Valley Water
  • 7up soda
  • Selmier Peerless Towel Supply
  • Standard Underwriters General Insurance in the Pierce Building on Main
