From Wikipedia
Semper Oper (or Semperoper or Dresden Royal Opera House or Dresden State Opera House) is an opera house in Dresden, Germany, and is one of the most famous in Europe. The building is considered to be a prime example of "Dresden-Baroque" architecture. It is situated on the Theater Square in central Dresden on the bank of the Elbe River. On top of the portal there is a Pantherquadriga with a statue of Dionysos. The interior was created by such famous archirects of the time as Johannes Schilling. Monuments on the portal depict famous artists such as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller, William Shakespeare, Sophocles, Molière and Euripides. The building also features work by Ernst Rietschel and Ernst Julius Hähnel.
It was first built in 1841, by architect Gottfried Semper, in the Early Renaissance style.
