Whether you love opera or have never seen a single one performed, it’s impossible to deny that opera houses are some of the most culturally significant and gorgeous buildings in the world. Along with art museums and libraries, opera houses showcase the wealth and prestige of the cities in which they’re built. Many of them can be toured without buying a ticket to a performance, though seeing a show at one of these lavish theaters is sure to be an unforgettable experience. From Moscow to Milan, these are the world's most amazing opera houses.
