We visited the opera house for a modern concert. The orchestras were wonderful and the acoustic was lovely, but the seats on the first floor were so angled, it literally hurt the feet sitting on them. The building itself is lovely with a lavish design...More

So worth a visit and the opera tickets are so cheap. For the opera the top price tickets where Euro 17 per person. Come 15 minutes early to take pictures of the amazing interior. The opera was superb. Yes the toilets need to be modernized...More

This building has beautiful style and is reachly decorated. There are some poorly designed technical parts though. Ballett is ok, but far from great. As to the opera, it is good. I do recommend though for a nice evening and good impressions.

I would like to know where can you find the schedule of performance for the National Opera House? Also... do they continue performances through the summer month or just during the Fall and Spring time?
