“annual opera festival”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

the annual opera festival is run with great panache and well-worth a visit to enjoy both good opera, fringe and literary events. Wonderfully friendly atmosphere, sole drawback is the early closing of many restaurants

“amazing venue”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

this is the most wonderful building I don't think it can be beaten in the UK. I reckon the back row or the front row of the dress circle are the places to sit.

“Impressive building”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

I liked the building and its setting. The seats were not the most comfortable I have ever sat in but were ok. The downstairs bar is really grotty, I didn't try the others in the building but the Old Clubhouse opposite is fine.

“Go to the Opera”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Splendid building. Best to see it during the Buxton Opera Festival. Edwardian Theatre and, together with the Pavilion Arts Centre, is the centre for the Buxton Festival, which also has its "Fringe". Don't forget to visit Scrivener's Books - a lovely old house on several floors, full of 2nd hand books and only 10 minutes walk from the Opera House.
