International Opera Cribs: Part One

International Opera Cribs: Part One

buenos aires opera house

Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Architect: Francesco Tamburini and Vittorio Meano

This theater had drama even as it was being built! The architect died, his pupil was murdered and then the guy financing it died. Despite all the muerte, it is considered one of the most beautiful structures in the world and definitely a must-see if you’re in beautiful Buenos Aires.

Okay, China. This is pretty damn cool and it screams China even though it was designed by a French guy. Nicknamed “The Egg” this structure even includes an artificial lake. Eggcellent.
