This Underrated Building Just Might Be The Most Beautiful Place In Boston

In a city blessed with hundreds of beautiful and significant buildings, it’s easy for even the most stunning spots to be overlooked. After all, visitors come here to view sites of historical importance… and to see Fenway! A night at the theater might be part of the itinerary, but most people pick the show they want to see, unaware that there’s a Boston theater so mesmerizing that its interior rivals any performance you might watch on the stage.

By Boston standards, the Boston Opera House is relatively new – it first opened in 1928. The venue alternated between screening movies and putting on Vaudeville performances.
