Sweden's Royal Opera is magically beautiful. I recommend everyone to visit our National Opera and ballet / modern dance. Today's performance was the "Barber of Seville" and everything from directing, actors, conductors and musicians were fantastic! Thanks! // Mats Samaras, Stockholm, Sweden

It's a gorgeous building situated on a grand square in which complementary architecture is present. The facade is delightful, classically inspired reflecting the timeline of its establishment. A great equestrian sculpture is the middle of the square, in front of the opera. It is a...More
