The world's best classical music venues
Dedicated solely to performing operas by Richard Wagner, this opera house is the venue for the annual Bayreuth Festival. The orchestra pit is covered, underneath the stage, because Wagner didn't want the audience to be distracted by the instrumentalists - they should be looking at the drama on stage!
