 For the last 30 years, photographer Richard Silver has built an unbelievably beautiful portfolio of photographs of major landmarks and the astounding interiors of historic buildings or those of national importance. His adventures and his incredible career path have taken him around the globe to places we all dream to visit. In this unique collection of photographs, Silver traveled across 94 different cities throughout the entire world in search of iconic opera houses, incomparable centers for performance art, and historic theaters.

From the ornate decor spread across the ceilings and banisters to the rich velvet seats that stretch as far as the eye can see, these photographs are sure to make you feel like you are right on those stages!
