Having been both an observer and a performer at this location I can safely say I've never met friendlier staff. Always willing to help out at a moments notice and very passionate about what they do. Drinks and snacks are overpriced, but that's to be expected from such a venue. Very grateful to have even one opera house in Belfast!

going to the opera house in Belfast is a great way to relax on a night out it takes you out of the real world in to a magical few hours of fun and laughter I go regularly to watch great acts the latest one I went to was last Friday 11.04.14 Dirty dancing at the chabine a one woman show now this was a Christmas box I would not recommend this for men as more women was their than men and seemed to enjoy the craic more than I did having said that I would still recommend the opera house as a must for visitors coming to Belfast, just one more thing before you go to see a show visit the Cosmo restaurant at Victoria centre it does all sorts of food from a round the world Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Italian, etc.
