The original opera house in Frankfurt am Main in Hessen, Central Germany, is now the Alte Oper (Old Opera), a concert hall and former opera house. It was inaugurated in 1880 and destroyed by bombs in 1944, then rebuilt, slowly, in the 1970s, opening again in 1981. Many important operas were performed for the first time in Frankfurt, including Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana in 1937. The square in front of the building is the Opernplatz (Opera Square). The Alte Oper is located in the Innenstadt (inner city) within the banking district so it’s right next to the very modern highrises, creating the common German view of „old meets new“. The actual Frankfurt Opera house is now in a modern building nearby, completed in 1951, which it shares with a theater company. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opern-_und_Schauspielhaus_Frankfurt
