Free entrance. Quick queue. First to the left, get your ticket. Then a looooong escalator to the balcony. A small boring shop and nice bar at that level. The restaurant is only open daytime.

Even better from inside than from outside. The building is full of architectural surprises. The escalators, the entrances to the observation deck... tickets easily available at the gate for free.

Sorry, can't help. I didn't go to any performance, just had a look around the building. Impressive. There's a guided tour available but it was booked out during the days we were wanting to go there. Good luck!

No there is no dress code. Maybe don’t come in shorts and Hawaii shirt, but you need not be dressed up. There are many (older) visitors dressing up (and showing off), but no need to do the same.
