Description

A view of the facade of the Semperoper, Dresden. A combination of styles form the opera house: Renaissance, Baroque, and classical revival. A two story portico marks the entrance and is surmounted with a panther quadriga pulling Dionysos and Ariadne. An equestrian statue of Saxon King John stands left-of-center in the picture frame. Three men stand in the plaza.
