Opera in the 20th century

The history of twenty-first century opera. #1932: Japan occupies Shanghai. At the elections for state president Hitler got a lot of votes but was ultimately defeated by sitting president Von Hindenburg, although the nazi party NSDAP did became the largest party at the Reichstag elections with 230 seats (+123). Iraq became independent of the UK. In this year Umberto Eco and John Williams were born and Spanish composer Amadeo Vives died. In opera and operetta there were quite some productions and premieres, and some very beautiful ones too!
