New Poll: What is your favourite International Opera House?

With all the talk of closing opera houses and companies, I thought it appropriate to ask this question.

Which house gives you chills just by walking in the door?

Is it because of who sang there?

Is it because of who conducted there or which opera premiered there?

Is it because of the history associated with the building?

Tell TLV which of these fabulous houses is your favourite!

  1. I have to say that my absolute favorite is the Metropolitan Opera House, both the old one on Broadway and the new house at Lincoln Center. I basically grew up there when I lived in New York and New Jersey and saw hundreds of performances there over the years starting way back in 1953. When I go back there I really feel like I’m home again.

  2. Right here is the right website for anybody who wants
    to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to
    argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).

    You certainly put a new spin on a topic which has been written about
    for a long time. Wonderful stuff, just excellent!
