The Architectural Intricacies of World-Famous Opera Houses by David Leventi

American photographer David Leventi documents the architectural intricacies of some of the world’s most famous landmarks, stepping inside more than 40 opera houses spanning four centuries and four continents.
Shot over the course of eight years with an arca-swiss camera to maximize detail, the series ‘OPERA‘ serves as a visual catalog of these cultural institutions, which stand as symbols of wealth, social standing, and dedication to the promotion of the arts. While these halls have hosted the voices of some of the greatest performers in history, leventi celebrates their eminence through the absence of human figures, accentuating the structural complexities and architectural personalities that can otherwise be easily overlooked. ‘while the halls and photographs are silent the mind fills with music,’ leventi says.
