  • Amazing building, newly refurbished and the effort that went into it really shows! The acoustics is simply great, the seats are very comfortable and the air conditioning provides an optimal temperature. I'm shocked that I've seen Wagner's Gotterdammerung which is close to five hours and left the hall feeling refreshed rather than tired. Of course this is reflected in the ticket price, but, seriously this is a competitor in the best halls I've ever been to, so it's understandable. I should mention the staff are an awesome bunch of guys, very helpful and non intrusive, I only got my ticket checked at entry. I would recommend this place for any performance because it gives you the opportunity to take some great pics inside and have the joy of listening to a great sound.
  • We came last minute and bought the standing ‘seats’ for 1500 each. Decent view and there is a bench to lean against. Opera Building is absolutely beautiful, I believe it has had a recent renovation. We saw Bach, which was expertly presented although the piece was not to my taste. Well worth the visit, and also easy bough to leave early if standing becomes too uncomfortable.
