Lying in the German city of Dresden is a magnificent structure, dear to many musicians and music lovers. Semper Opera, also known as Semperoper, is one of Germany's most popular cultural landmarks. The current opera house stands on the site of a previous 17th century opera house and was first constructed on these grounds in 1841.
Semperoper has been greatly acclaimed as it has featured some of the most notable artists and operas worldwide. Having been re-constructed multiple times, the present building is a confluence of various architectural styles incorporated over time. Set in Theaterplatz, the building is a beautiful sight especially at night when it dazzles in all its glory with lights and soul stirring music.
The oval shaped building features a large central portal topped by a panther-drawn quadriga with Dionysos, Greek god of the art and his consort Ariadne.
