Opera is classy, dramatic, daring, inviting and spectacular. Being a crucial part of the public face of the city, this opera building adds all of these characteristics to the public realm. All public programs have been combined in a ring that exposes the dramatic faces to the outside and collects the public into a publicly accessible ring on the inside. The overall expression is smooth ecstatic and sumptuous as a true opera should be.
