Opera is usually associated with the classics. And Opera is probably one of the few things not to modernize. Even not experts are agreeing with this opinion. But many people go and many approve of it)

Normally when I review opera houses I focus on the performances - after all, those are what you go for. However, there are a few points I'd like to make about this opera house before I get to those... 1) It's a fairly modern house, and, for 3 different performances we sat in three different areas. For the first we... More

The OpernHaus on Willy- Brandt -Platz is a warm and intimate space which functions and appears similar to so many of the older European opera houses but with all the amenities of a new structure. There's easy public transport access in front as well as a multi-story car park beneath the Opera House. With so many interesting and challenging productions... More

I had great pleasure in seeing the Christmas production of Hansel and Gretel. This opera ticks my boxes, the writer is dead, it is not too long and the music is pleasant listen too. The opera house is relatively new. It has excellent seating and acoustics. The ticket prices are very reasonable.

I went to the sunday morning Chamber music in foyer. the ticket is rather cheap, and the atmosphere was great! If you want to try the classic music but you are afraid the music is too far from your normal life, try this one.

First experience at an opera which followed a fantastic previous nights concert watching Paolo Nutini. Really enjoyed the experience, bar man was a real character serving about 6 people at once with nothing phasing him. Worth a visit and good value

From a strictly musical aspect, the Oper Frankfurt is first class - beyond doubt. Unfortunately, from my Point of view the staging, more often than not, is disappointing as It tries far too often to be inovative and "avant guard," usually by placing the action in totally different time periods and giving the staging a bizarre twist. Also, since the... More

The building is not very impressive for an Opera house, though the acoustics were very good. Please ensure you get sits in the middle - we have been at the back corner and could not see very well due to the low downwards angle of saloon.

the modern Oper-Frankfurt is a very pretty, modern and acoustically serene music hall. We has the opportunity to see a Hungarian opera and the voices carried very well. Also, a bright spot is that the seats (at least in the floors above the main floor) are well tiered so that sight lines are excellent.
