I only discovered that these tours existed as the guide on our walking tour mentioned it. One can book online or at the box office, and costs €10. The tour takes about 1 1/4 hours and includes going backstage (which is *gigantic* !).

This is the real deal. One of the great opera houses of the world. A fabulous orchestra and the world's top singers. The best Wagner or Strauss you will ever hear.

Coming off a wonderful "The taming of the shrew", with the amazing Sergei Polunin, special guest of the company. I can never thank the Bayerische Staatsballet enough for evenings like this! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Highly recommended.
