This building is just breathtaking. It is a must if you visit Vienna. You can even attend an Opera at a low price but standing up. I'd love to go back!

Very worth while going to visit the Wiener Staatsoper even if I could only get standing tickets. It is an opera house to see in and of itself even though it is a mix of 19th century and 1950s, but it is the quality of...More

Tickets are pricy but worth it if you're an opera fan. The classic architecture with many statues and classic/art deco style decorations are worth seeing. Come early and enjoy a glass of spritzer in the bar. People were dressed smartly, some laides even wearing a...More

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
