The World's Greatest Music
Some are steeped in history, others demonstrate the best of modern architecture - discover the most iconic venues for classical music, where some of the world's greatest music was heard for the first time.
Dedicated solely to performing operas by Richard Wagner, this opera house is the venue for the annual Bayreuth Festival.
