What can I say? World class performers, musicians, sets and everything amazing. There is also a wide range of prices for seats and performances so most budgets can find something.
never was a big fan of opera until i went here with a friend, she had free tickets so we went one eveing. Very good show and makes you feel sad and happy at the same time
just a pleasure a treat to go there. from pre shows drinks/snack, to the location, quality of shows, the quality of accoustic... i love to go to the Opera house. I always take friends and family when they come for a visit in London.
What an absolutely stunning venue! We had tickets to watch Carmen. It was of the most enjoyable evenings I have ever had. The Opera House is spectacular as was the performance. I will definitely be going back.
not a good performance - the soprano had a screeching voice and the stage props were not acceptable - the only good artist was the servant girl.
I have a lot of positive emotions with this great house, going back to my Hitchhiker timer (Holding up the thumb, yes). I learned loving Operas, not all and only in good great opera houses and this is one of the finest. Nice is also the atmosphere outside, especially at night.
Nothing not to like, we sat in GT23 box with fantastic, perfect view, nice champagne bar nearby which you can order for the interval. All very civilised.
If you'd like to see something different, book a backstage tour. You get an insight into a working opera/ballet house and see not only props being constructed, costumes, sets ready and being moved for the next performances, a tour through the theatre itself (dependent on current productions), etc. We also heard the orchestra practising and had the delight of seeing...

It's amazing that there is an opera in the middle of Covent Garden. You can't see it from the outside, but there it is. It's quite expensive and small, but nice. The good thing is the large selection of opera and ballets you can go and see.
