This recently unveiled opera house is a stunning example of contemporary formalist architecture, but don't let the visuals fool you: They built it for the acoustics.

The centre's light, open feel is quite inviting - floor to ceiling glass walls and glass staircase. Auditorium seating... more

Home to the Canadian Opera Company, the Four Seasons Center for the Performing Arts is a gorgeous building both inside and out. The exterior features a glass wall allowing light to shine in or out depending on the time of day, and the inside is a spectacular open space with four balconies. It also houses the longest free-spanning glass staircase in the world. Besides being beautiful, it is also... more
