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.

ARIADNE AUF NAXOS by Richard Strauss did not fill the auditorium, we purchased the lest expensive tickets on the very top, and later had a chance to chose more confortable seats. It was sung in German with German subtitles. The... More

Just back to our hotel after the first act of La Sonambula. Fine performances, great sound, and would love to have stayed for the rest, but the seats were impossible. We were in 2. Rang Seite links, Reihe 1, seats 9 and 10. Unlike the seats in row 2 in the same area, these seats are not angled toward the... More

Went to the Opera in Frankfurt for the first time. Very nice experience, friendly atmosphere and friendly staff. All subtitling in German, but all personally speaks very good English. Especially nice with preordering of nice food, cold as well as warm, and wine for the intermittent. Do not forget to preorder!

Wonderful playing, conducting, staging (but perhaps I'm biased as I know the stage director), lighting (and I also know the lighting designer!) and singing. Two really memorable nights.
