Opera houses

Back | Home | Up | Next

An opera house is a building where operas are performed. The venues are usually constructed specifically with opera in mind, although other performing arts may be performed there.

Opera houses are listed by continent, then by country with the name of the opera house and city; the opera company is sometimes named for clarity.
