The guided tours were very full but well worth the visit. They are fast paced though and, with multiple groups moving throughout the building at once, it would be easy to get caught up with the wrong group if you have mobility issues. The question...More

The tour of the Opera is wonderful. We were lucky enough to be able to go backstage and see the inner workings and better understand how each opera is produced. The building is magnificent and our tour guide was excellent.

The external structure is magnificent. Short of seeing a performance, the guided tour is the only way to see the interior. Lots of interesting history. This place is massive! Tours given in many languages. Only negative--our informative guide was sometimes drowned out by much louder...More

The Opera House is such a beautiful building, inside and out. We saw Giselle here last night. Fabulous.

We went to see Giselle at the State Opera House. It is an opulent, beautiful, historic building. Very well preserved.

Attended the opera, the outside of the building is majestic but the inside is sumptuous The ornate gold relief, high ceilings, columns, sweeping staircases all entrance you even before the performance starts.

A beautiful performance of La Traviata adapted to the 50's. The Opera house is a beautiful and elegant place. If wearing a jacket and tie it may become a bit too warm (this was during September). If you enjoy Opera this is a must stop.

Let me start this by saying I’m a retired Opera singer, so I completely understand how the morning rehearsal (of an upcoming opera) and then the resetting of the stage (for that evening’s performance ) works. I understand why they could only schedule four tours...More

Beautiful building on the outside.... We did not go inside but we bought a concert ticket outside the building and were very pleased with our purchase

Theoretically yes but in practice no. This peeved us as we packed extra clothes in our cases specifically because of the dress code and this took extra space that wasn't needed. I think they are stricter if it's a first... More
