The Opera dates back to 1828 and adopted its curent name in 1902. It currently houses the Noice ballet and Philharmonic Orchestra. It is an interesting building that has hosted some famous people and kings over the years. Worth a look.
The building is an old Italian style opera house.

As in many operas around the world, the operas are in various languages with sub-tittles up above for folk to understand what is being sung.
