We bought center tickets for what was my first opera, and everything was splendid. Excellent acoustics, very cheap ticket prices, and a very good performance. This is an absolute must-do attraction when visiting in Bucharest.

we went to the opera and saw Nabucco, this production blew us away espcially as it was only £8.50 for two tickets, such a beautiful building. I would love to see another production here in the future.

We saw a performance of Carmen here over the weekend, and it was incredible. The venue is so beautiful and grand, and people really get dressed up. The loge seating was a bit too warm and the show was quite long (4 acts with breaks...More
