Alte Oper, Frankfurt am Main: 27 reviews and 45 photos
The old opera of Frankfurt, once destroyed but now rebuilt in all its glory, is no longer the place for opera in Frankfurt, its place having been taken by the new opera at Willy-Brandt-Platz. It still hosts some top class musical acts, both local and international, including the likes of the London Symphony Orchestra and Goran Bregovic the composer for cult movies like Underground and Black Cat/White Cat.
The building itself is magnificent, and stands out against the modernity of the nearby banking district. It's a sight to see in itself, even if you don't plan on buying tickets for a performance, and there are a number of cafes sitting underneath its towering mass. There's also a cafe on the third floor, which offers great views across the park ot the soaring office towers. If you just want to relax, there's also a popular fountain just in front.
For the curious, the inscription on the front reads "Dem Wahren, Schönen, Guten", which means "to the true, the beautiful, the good".
