Went to the cafe for drinks and a late snack with friends, surprised to find there was a live show starting just as we arrived. It was really entertaining, service was good, prices quite high but good value considering. Standing room only after half an hour, a very pleasant evening.

The quality of the ensemble was superb. We watched Wozzek, which is quite difficult to perform, especially for the orchestra, but they truly did a great job. The theater is ok, acoustics are not the best I've ever experienced. There are some spots especially on the sides, where you really can't see at all and for 50 EUR!!! I strongly... More

A really modern building just conveniently located in the central business district right across a tram line. However, it's very open and spacious. Very modern building and also 15 walk from frankfurt Hauptbahnhof.

If you are culture fan, you are in the right city and in the right place. It might be a bit hard to park without having to spend a bit. But the cultural level might compensate it as this is a very nice and modern opera house surrounded by the city center.

Last season (2014/15) it was the best Opera House by the Opernwelt critics. They have wonderful program and there are a lot of world famous singer who started their carrier in this opera house. We had 2 excellent performances at our last visit - Verdi: Stifellio and Puccini: Il trittico. Wonderful performances.

Normally when I review opera houses I focus on the performances - after all, those are what you go for. However, there are a few points I'd like to make about this opera house before I get to those... 1) It's a fairly modern house, and, for 3 different performances we sat in three different areas. For the first we... More

The OpernHaus on Willy- Brandt -Platz is a warm and intimate space which functions and appears similar to so many of the older European opera houses but with all the amenities of a new structure. There's easy public transport access in front as well as a multi-story car park beneath the Opera House. With so many interesting and challenging productions... More

I had great pleasure in seeing the Christmas production of Hansel and Gretel. This opera ticks my boxes, the writer is dead, it is not too long and the music is pleasant listen too. The opera house is relatively new. It has excellent seating and acoustics. The ticket prices are very reasonable.

Thank Andrew M
