Alte Oper

Another view of the Alte Oper. The rebuilt Opernhaus officially reopened on August 28, 1981. It was renamed to 'Alte Oper' since Frankfurt had already built a new Opera House in 1951. While the exterior and the lobby were rebuilt faithful to the original, most of the interior is built as a modern multipurpose complex with concert halls and a congress center. The red post box like structure in the foreground is a stand for displaying posters, show timings and stuff. (Jan. 2008)
