This review is quite late. The Paliashvili Opera House along Rustaveli Avenue is an imposing structure with its Moorish architectural design and impressive facade. It was closed for business when I passed by.

This theatre has had the most amazing renovation and is truly stunning. We saw a performance of Swan Lake which was also wonderful - excellent staging, costumes and performances. But the audience were dreadful. We had two people in our line of sight who were constantly on their mobile phones and someone at the end of the row in front... More

Paliashvili Opera House a fascinating building, and I've loved it since childhood. It is beautiful from the outside too, and there is a very little park next to it, but it's true beauty is interior. It's very colorful and shiny and stuff, but somehow manages not to be vulgar and overly-decorated. The performances are are another thing of beauty. Famous... More

Outside is not reflecting the masterwork inside. Fascinating decorations from inside. You smell the history and the nice work which has been done by the Georgians.

We enjoyed the ballet Anna Karenina at this recently beautifully renovated Opera house. The ticket price is very affordable for the tourists, not sure about local people. If you have opportunity to see the performance, please do it. You would enjoy it. Our seats were at the tier 1 level, and it was too hot there. Looks like no A/C... More

The opera makes for an marvelous evening in Tbilisi. The theater has just reopened after extensive renovations and provide both a great atmosphere and high class performances that could match those of Bolshoi in Moscow or Mariinsky in St Petersburg. The ticket price is very reasonable and the only disappointing part of the experience was the rather poor selection of... More

After great reconstruction it is open again. Looks great outside and inside. Great voices on the stage. The stage is now on the perfect technical level. Only the stuff is not perfect - problem to speak English, they are not able to serve so many people in small Cloakrooms....
