Alte Oper Building in Frankfurt, Germany

This is Frankfurt Germany’s first opera house which is now called Alte Oper (Old Opera). It was the Opernhaus when it was built in 1880 but then destroyed in 1944 by Allied bombing. The building was rebuilt and opened as a concert hall in 1981. The German words under the pediment translate into: “To the true, the beautiful, the good.”
