Today in History: Planes banned from flying over White House in 1935

84 years ago today, President Franklin D. Roosevelt banned all airplanes from flying over the White House. His reasoning? Supposedly, the planes were disrupting president’s sleep. The ban is still in effect today, serving a greater purpose of national security.

Today in History: Andy Warhol died in 1987

32 years ago today, one of the most influential artists of the second half of the 20th century, passed away. Andy Warhol (born Andrew Warhola in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) was a pioneer of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s and a cultural icon. Warhol studied at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh before moving to New York in 1950. His studio, commonly known as “The Factory,” was a famous meeting place for New York artists, intellectuals and celebrities. From the mid-1960s on, Warhol no longer painted much himself. He produced a number of underground films, including “Chelsea Girls” (1966) and “Trash” (1970) and even managed a punk rock band, The Velvet Underground. Warhol passed away in Manhattan on February 22, 1987.

Today in History: Premiere of “Madame Butterfly”

Today in History: Premiere of “Madame Butterfly”

It was not all smooth sailing for Giacomo Puccini’s opera “Madame Butterfly” at its world premiere at La Scala in Milan, Italy in 1904. Quite the opposite, the opening was interrupted by its hostile audience’s disapproving shouts, boos and whistles. Italian newspapers commented that “the spectacle given in the auditorium seemed as well organized as that on the stage since it began precisely with the beginning of the opera.” It was only after Puccini had considerably shortened his opera that it became a huge success. To date, Madame Butterfly is a staple of the standard opera repertoire. Puccini’s sentimental music helped foster the unbroken popularity of the Japanese tragedy of the Geisha Cio-Cio-San and U.S. Naval officer Pinkerton. Madame Butterfly followed equally successful Puccini operas like “La Boheme” (1896) and “Tosca” (1900).
