Gottfried Semper and Richard Wagner, Festspielhaus Theatre in Bayreuth, Germany, 1876

If you want to experience music and architecture as a whole, then don’t miss the Bayreuther Festspiele at Richard Wagner’s theatre in Bayeruth, Bavaria. Each summer the Festival celebrates the German composer showcasing all of his operas, in the only place where they can be fully appreciated: the theatre Wagner himself designed for his plays.

The Festspielhaus Ttheatre is an example of how art and architecture can smoothly merge together. The project was led by architect Gottfried Semper, and it was opened to the public in 1876. The building was inspired by the essential lines of the greek theatre, and marked a starting point for modern theatre architecture.
