It’s western civilization’s ultimate art form, and essential to any city with a cultural tradition. Adding to the experience of grand opera are the buildings themselves, including their architecture, appointments, and crucially, their acoustics. Consider legendary opera houses in Florence, Milan, Venice, Paris, London, and Chicago’s two opera houses, the Auditorium and Civic Opera House. Jerome M. O’Connor will pay special attention to his 2016 tour of St. Petersburg’s new $700 million Mariinsky Theatre. Hint: it’s spectacular.
