[ Nov.2015 ] The spa town of Buxton in the middle of England has an Opera House.
It was built by the architect who built London Coliseum and apparently the inside is gorgeous.
We could only peep into the entrance area, though.
It was opened in 1903 and used as a venue for performing arts until 1927. After that it became a cinema.
By the 1970s, it had gone out of fashion and closed down, but in 1979 it was restored.
They renovated it a couple of times more and now it is a functioning Opera House once again, with 902 seats.
They do not show only operas or ballets though, but also more popular things such as pop concerts and musicals.
