    13 Most Beautiful Opera Houses Around the World

    Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth, Germany


    The beauty of opera is only matched by the places in which itĺs performed. These grandiose settings fuse fine art with architecture into one stunning cultural center. For centuries, these places have been at the height of society, showcasing the talents of countless performers and musicians. When not filled with people, however, the opera houses stand on their own as breathtaking institutions. As photography demonstrates, the designŚincluding ornamental gilding, balustrades, and chandeliersŚis even more stunning when the seats and stage are completely empty.

    Many of the opera houses seen here were built long ago. The Margravial Opera House in Bayreuth, Germany was constructed between 1746 and 1750. Boasting a hand-painted wooden roof, the well-preserved Baroque design is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Other halls, like the contemporary Harbin Opera House in Harbin, China, have a modern spin. Created by the Beijing-based studio MAD, it strays from tradition and features one undulating form that wraps around two concert halls and a public plaza. Although it has a minimalist feel, Harbinĺs interior still takes a cue from older opera houses with balconies that seemingly ripple in and out of the space.

    As times continue to change, so does the function of these iconic spaces. Often, they host a variety of shows (aside from operas), and their historic decor provides a beautiful juxtaposition between the past and present.

    the first one is horrible, looks morbid, baroque at it's worst.

    the rest are pretty nice.
