The Opera House in Toronto is a modernist building located right downtown. It is the only purpose built opera house in Canada, and the home of the Canadian Opera Company ( the third largest producer of Opera in North America)








sightlines and acoustics are excellent in the hall:

Norwegian National Opera and Ballet

This is my personal favorite. A building that is just as much an Opera house as a square, making something elitist as the opera public domain again.

It's located in the historic center, near the Cathedral. The theatre was inaugurated in 1778. Most of Italy's greatest operatic artists, and many of the finest singers from around the world, have appeared at La Scala during the past 200 years. Today, the theatre is still recognised as one of the leading opera and ballet theatres in the world and is home to the La Scala Theatre Chorus, La Scala Theatre Ballet and La Scala Theatre Orchestra. The theatre also has an associate school, known as the La Scala Theatre Academy, which offers professional training in music, dance, stage craft and stage management.
