I was thinking maybe somewhere in the former communist dictatorships of eastern Europe. I did Google image searches for "national theater" and "concert hall" in combination with communist or dictatorship. Using "concert hall communist" led to this article with a similar looking building but without the dome - http://leonidpetrov.wordpress.com/20...n-north-korea/

I then searched for "Pyongyang concert hall" and found it - http://www.fotopedia.com/wiki/East_Pyongyang_Grand_Theatre#!/items/f92u9unugujk0-RxcW5mnKswM

It was not in the part of the world I thought it may be, but sometimes you get lucky
Great get. Sorry, sick as a dog yesterday (not much better today), didn't even touch the computer.

In a way, this was a really great search for me.

Even though I could not find it, I did lots of Google Image searches
on words like "modern architecture music", etc and saw some really
beautiful buildings... particularly the interior stairways, and stages.

You need to give it some time. That was a really hard one. Look how long spex's opera house took.

so where was it, anyway? I was doing all sorts of Gothic revival mansion searches and coming up empty.

I was thinking it was the Danbury nuthouse in Connecticut. Danvers, in Mass., rather.

I have an eye for nuthouses. (but not for their names, apparently)

In France? Is that a clue? You don't normally type in French.

Sorry you didn't get a quick response, IM. I, personally was going through like ninety-fricking-nine pages of "historic hotel postcard" images. This here's a toughy, so far.

No biggie. Just that the other day there was some lightning fast guessing, answering, and posting and then I got on it and...(chirp chirp chirp)

Pay me no mind, my Aunt makes me paranoid.
