This is a beautiful building on the downtown area, right next to the east bank on Lake Zürich. It has a huge plaza in front and the building is of a beautiful neoclassical architecture.

First time visiting and the venue was smaller than I would have expected. However, that smaller setting creates a very intimate setting. Great performance of Der Freischutz and the first time I had seen that Opera. Great stage setting and orchestra was one of the...More
