Few theatres can boast a location as spectacular as the Minack Theatre in Cornwall. Built into the side of a cliff, this is an open-air amphitheatre on the coast. There are live music and theatrical performances troughout the year, though inevitably the most popular are in summer time.

Bolshoi Theatre, Russia

The most famous ballet theatre in the world has recently reopened after years of restoration, and the impact is quite incredible: stepping into the auditorium you cannot but be impressed. Golden boxes line the walls of the theatre; red velvet seats are laid out beneath magnificent chandeliers. And the ballets? You won’t see any better.

Sydney Opera House, Australia

The world’s most famous opera house is an architectural icon in its own right. Whether you choose to come to a concert here, or prefer to take a tour of the building, it will be an unforgettable experience.

Colosseum, Italy

For well over 2,000 years, the Colosseum in the centre of Rome has hosted all manner of games and performances, from gladiator fight to re-enactments. The Colosseum is still open to the public on a daily basis, and if you’re lucky you’ll also be able to catch a show, performed on the original stage and to a crowd just as appreciative as their ancient counterparts.

Burning Man, USA

Burning Man is technically a festival rather an an individual performance venue, but it makes this list because the heat and the beauty of the desert seem somehow designed to host a music festival. When darkness falls, the sky is a riot of stars, and the music carries far and wide on the breeze.
