“Highlight of visit to Prague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

The State Opera was most definitely the highlight of our trip to Prague. We went to the performance of "Rigoletto". This was the first opera we have seen and have to say that it was spell-binding!. The hall is visually stunning and evokes memories of a by-gone age. You are captivated from the moment the lights go down and the conductor strikes up the orchestra. You finally realize what opera is. The music, the singing, the costumes, the stage, the story - Opera is the complete package. It is addictive and leaves you wanting more. We wanted to go again the following night. The tickets were so reasonable, approx. 30 euro each for the center of the first balcony. I strongly recommend a night at the State Opera during a visit to Prague. You will never forget it.

“Very reasonable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

We watched Tosca in this beautiful Opera House. The performance was great with subtitles in English and Czech. We got tickets in one of the boxes and didn't regret it. The prices are so reasonable I wish we had gone twice. Sandwichs at interval were very reasonable. Lovely.

The opera was just wonderful. Not the really cheap prices of yesteryear, but still reasonable and the building was amazing.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Beautiful building, inside and out. Many boxes on multiple levels, which were similar in price to the stalls. However I would recommend a box to yourself, as some boxes had two rows of seats with a restricted view from the back row. Very easy to book 'e-tickets' online (can use direct without exchanging at box office), and email very helpful. We saw Aida; very nicely produced and beautiful ambience.
