I visited two nights, one for opera and one for ballet. The show is high quality and the sounds and lights is good. The ticket price is unbelievably cheap so opera lovers must not miss this.

Great Opera House right in the heart of the city, super close to Golden Gate. I saw only from the outside cos I visited in summer, but I will keep a nice memory of it anyway.
