My taxi turned the corner and I was confronted with this beautiful classical building. And to set it off were several of the old style gas lamps and the front fountain where some of the local kids were having a splash. Great.
An Opera House from 1880 to a bombed out Opera House in 1944. Restored in the 1970's, but...
We got to see a great show done by a very professional group. The Alte Oper has been beautifully restored and I was surprised at how many foreigners were going to the show and how many languages I heard not only from the visitors but from the staff. Of course, it seemed like everyone spoke English. Great place to visit.
