We have not been to the opera for a very long time, so imagine our delight to watch Marcello Mottadelli as he directed Tosca - without a score!!! It was as if his whole self was involved as he led the orchestra and the outstanding cast. The innovative staging gave us the memorable experience of "surround sound" provided by the placement of the choir which my heart and soul will remember forever. And as you may be able to tell, I am in no way an expert on opera or any other kind of music as a matter of fact! Do give yourself a treat and take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy productions at this opera!

"Opera in recital" tries to transmit different emotions from different shows. But the sound in foyer is not really so good as expected....

We went to see Giselle and we loved it. We had tickets in the balcony but we could see the scene very well. Beautiful building. Beautiful mise en scene. Very polite staff. Highly recommended.

The building doesn't have AC which is unacceptable for an European capital opera house. Regardless of whether you go in the winter or summer, stay away from the high balcony seats where it gets unbearably hot and stuffy. To address the issue the management recommends bringing a fan. We tried, it does not solve the problem.

While there I attempted to get tickets. No performances June thru August. This location has been opened since 1954. It's a great location for photos and near the park.
