OPERA HOUSE INTERIORS
posted by James Reel
Here's a photo gallery of beautiful interiors of opera houses around the world. Note that most of them are older buildings, before the minimalist aesthetic took over in the 1960s (and ruined opera-house and concert-hall acoustics; the shape of the room and ornamentation on the walls have as much to do with the sound of a place as its look). There are may recent opera buildings with stunning exteriors, but you don't get interiors like these anymore.
