Its auditorium is one of the best in the world, and all great artists have performed here.
Neo-Baroque and lots of oak
The city of Zurich is characterised for being a cultural fusion of different styles, trends, cultural and artistic movements, which has been helped somewhat by its geographic location, and has directly witnessed all historic changes that occurred on the old continent. A good example of this is the opera house (Opernhaus), in which all its lines are magnificent with busts of Mozart, Weber, and Wagner that reign from the top: the Neo-Baroque style of the shapes on its walls are easily notable, having been built over 1,500 boards of oak. The Opernhaus dates back to the year 1891. The interior rococo-style of this opera house is home to one of the most important auditoriums in Europe, its inauguration was carried out with a performance of Lohengrin by Richard Wagner, and the world's finest composers have performed here since then. Incidentally, the Opernhaus was the first opera house in the world to have electrical lighting.
