Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany, Opens Today

The striking Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, home to the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, opens its doors for the first time today and tomorrow. It houses three concert halls—including the 2,100-seat Grand Concert Hall and the more intimate 550-seat Recital Hall—places to eat and drink, a hotel, and a public plaza. It will also serve as a venue for multiple music-education programs. Enjoy a slideshow of the new crystalline structure.
