Inside the Teatro la Fenice opera

Teatro La Fenice is the best concert hall

This building has its drama show and screenplay... Unfortunately, Teatro La Fenice burned down in 1996. But, look at it now… They rebuilt it entirely in the old baroque style. The stage and the seating, balconies, and fantastic architecture make it an unwise experience to visit this theater.
