“An iconic and historic in the heart of Manchester”

Opera House Manchester
Ranked #19 of 189 things to do in Manchester
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Located on Quay street, just off Deansgate, the opera house offers a fantastically historic venue for all productions be it opera, theatre or comedy. I I frequented many times and always enjoyed the performances.

The venue is tired in places due to its age and there are some viewing issues from some seats. However the decor and history of the venue more than makes up for it.

I'm spurt he opera house will continue to welcome top acts in the future as Manchester continues to be the sister location to the West End.

The opera house has very comfy stalls and good views, enjoyed the opening of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels there which was awesome.

Ticketing is an expensive ball ache though. ATG has a shocking user experience and we have in the past abandoned several £1000's of sales due to online and ticket office experiences.

Top advice get another Mug (friend) to buy the seats for you.

What a wonderful joyful first night show in a beautiful old theatre. The title role was perfectly cast and Emma Williams gave a marvellous performance, she sparkled throughout. Jason Donovan understood his character so entirely and gave a thoroughly rounded Frank Butler and the onstage chemistry between Annie and Frank was sizzling. All the supporting cast were excellent and the brilliant orchestra being on stage was a delight. Go get tour tickets I'm glad I did!

Been a few times. Always enjoy the opera productions but have been for other shows too and can't fault the place.

I am sorry to say a very poor show. No on stage chemistry
And having spent over £40 each for tickets we spoke to people who had been given free or heavily discounted tickets, not a good recommendation
