Zurich's Opera House (Opernhaus Zürich) sits on the edge of Lake Zurich and has a history going back to 1834. The present building was constructed between 1890 to 1891 by Viennese architects. Within its walls, the Swiss passion for opera really gets an airing, with operas, concerts by the philharmonic orchestra, soirees, matinees, evensong and productions on the studio stage. Each season, about 16 premieres grace the stage in the Opera House. This neo-classical structure has carved images of Schiller, Mozart, Shakespeare, Goethe and Weber in its facade. Its ornate auditorium with elegant chandeliers and intricate domed ceiling is equipped with great acoustics.
