It's not an opera house, it's a Morris Column used for posting advertisements. They're common in many European cities. The charm reflects the style of those in Paris, but it could be almost anywhere.

  • do the words around the top (Martini on the charm, Tera something in this picture) mean something, or identify a location? – Kate Gregory Jul 2 at 23:17

    Not as far as I can tell, @Kate. Images of the Parisian columns mostly have Theatre or Spectacle around the top and carry posters for theatre shows and other events. Martini, I'd guess, refers to the famous brand: yet more advertising. Perhaps the makers of the charm struck some product placement deal with Martini & Rossi. – user90371 Jul 2 at 23:40
  • Martini is an alcohol brand, they probably wanted to represent that in the charm. – Max Jul 3 at 0:29
  • Thank you everyone! So grateful. Sorry the photo didn’t show up for so long but I had uploaded it. – Barbara Mc Jul 3 at 21:30
