These Photos Capture The Ornate Wonder Of Opera Houses

 

If you want to see the most luxurious and fanciful buildings around, then you really need to take a look at some opera houses. Rather than jetting off and taking an opera house tour of the world (although that does sound fun), photographer David Leventi has done the hard work for you! Using Arca-Swiss cameras, Leventi has taken amazing large format photos of some of the world's most famous opera houses. What's more, you get the see them from a vantage that usually only opera singers would, from center stage. Let's take a look!
