Old Opera House, Frankfurt - GERMANY
And the third oficial of today came from Germany (the absolut winner in my postcrossing stats, both sent and received) - this one shows a beautiful nightshot of the original opera house in Frankfurt. Thank you very much Annette for this card and your nice words.
The original opera house in Frankfurt is now the Alte Oper (Old Opera) and 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. The square in front of the building is known as Opernplatz (Opera Square).
