This impressive opera house was originally called the Vienna Court Opera before being renamed the state opera house. It's productions are not equal to the ones presented at the Volksoper, in my opinion, but it's worth looking to see what's on.

I was first time to see opera. The place is spectacular. Performance of actors is fantastic. Acoustic is very good in such a big place. Must visit.

I visited the Opera House during the day on a tour. It was very interesting, the inside is very beautiful and we feel like we are in a movie. Although the building is not 100% original because of WWII, it is still very historical and...More

Such an amazing building from the exterior. I highly recommend anyone to see it and actually see an opera. We didnt have time in our schedule, but I love opera so I was disapointed we couldnt see one.

A nice and beautiful music hall. Classic decorated. The night we went was full. It is good for the music lover. Unfortunately, i slept 1/2 of the performing till the last part.

We bought the 4 euro standing tickets for Swan Lake. It was fantastic. The theater is not that big so I do not believe that there would be any problem with visibility. The only seats I would not like are the boxes on the... More

I would contact the opera house tour office. They were highly organized. It was being renovated when we visited so it was in a bit of a state of transition. I am unsure if they have concerts in the evening as we had dinner... More

We saw quite a variety of dress standards. Perhaps the local regulars were able to dress up whereas many others, perhaps tourists, were quite OK in a variety of outfits.
