I am trying to break up my posts a little because I took a lot of pictures, and I want to keep people interested.
From Wikipedia: The original opera house in Frankfurt is now the Alte Oper (Old Opera), a concert hall and former opera house in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It was inaugurated in 1880 but destroyed by bombs in 1944. It was rebuilt, slowly, in the 1970s, opening again in 1981. Many important operas were performed for the first time in Frankfurt, including Carl Orff‘s Carmina Burana in 1937.
