The details on those buildings are insane. I love looking at architecture like that.

Teatro Nacional de São Carlos - Opera house in Lisbon, Portugal


The Teatro Nacional de São Carlos is an opera house in Lisbon, Portugal. It was opened on July 30, 1793 by Queen Maria I as a replacement for the Tejo Opera House, which was destroyed in the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. The theatre is located in the historical center of Lisbon, in the Chiado district.

In 1792, a group of Lisbon businessmen decided to finance the construction of a new Opera House in the city. The theatre was built in only six months following a design by Portuguese architect José da Costa e Silva, with neoclassical and rococo elements. The general project is clearly inspired by great Italian theatres like the San Carlo of Naples (interior) and La Scala in Milan (interior and façade). In the early 19th century, when the Portuguese Royal Court had to flee to Brazil to escape the invading Napoleonic troops, a theatre modelled on the São Carlos was built in Rio de Janeiro.


Interior of the Teatro.The main façade has a decorated clock, the Portuguese coats-of-arms and an arched entrance hall (a portico). The theatre was named after the Princess Charlotte of Spain, who had come to Portugal in 1790 to marry the future King, Prince John: Carlos (Portuguese form of Charles) is the masculine form of Charlotte. A Latin commemorative inscription dedicates the theatre to the princess.

The beautiful main room is elliptic, has five tiers of boxes and seats 1148 people. The luxurious royal box was lavishly decorated by the Italian Giovanni Appianni. The ceiling was painted by Manuel da Costa and the stage by Cirilo Wolkmar Machado.

The first opera presented here, in 1793, was La Ballerina Amante, by Domenico Cimarosa. The most famous Portuguese composer of the time, Marcos Portugal, became musical director of the São Carlos in 1800 after returning from Italy, and many of his operas were staged here.

The National Theatre in Prague has a depressingly hideous extension to the side of the building (1970's I think) which is way past its sell-by date and should now be raized to the ground!

If you mean New Scene buildings, that's well known problem. For year 2012 (or later) is planned general reconstruction. Future appearance is still under discussion..

Majority of people were against that extension, but our Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage is absolutely useless and they didn't do anything to save the building! I walk past the opera almost every day and there are many people shaking their heads in disbelief; that black monstrosity actually gained a new nickname among people-"gangrene"!

And another sad thing is that opera house should have been re-opened in 2008, but appearently something went wrong...So the date of re-opening is still unknown! Minister of Culture recently admitted that it would be much better to leave the old building alone and make a new opera house on another location!

Here's another sad picture of the building:

I think La Fenice has to be the most beautiful opera house in the world and it's no coincidence that it is in one of the most beautiful cities as well.
La Scala has to be the greatest but this thread has featured many others not so well known which is great.

The new extension really is terrible, but I have to correct you. Most of the ornamentation (all of it hopefully) will be placed back; don't forget the restauration is not finished yet.

Plecnik would be sad if he was still alive

reminds me extension of Prague Stock Exchange (former Federal Parliament Bldg also used by Radio Free Europe in the past) some 50 years ago..

The second building in the distance is National Opera in Prague by the way:
