We saw " Tannhauser " at the Opera house, What a fantastic building, Even being in a wheelchair didn't take away the spendour and magnificance. the accoustics are literally out of this world, but more importantly, the staff, their attitude and attention for a disabled guest really is beyond reproach, from the steps to the lift, then the lounge, then...

We bought tickets over the Internet from home in the UK for The Rakes Progress Friday night and Madame Butterfly on Saturday. The transaction was easy and tickets arrived quickly by post. The seats were excellent, loads of leg room and good visibility and acoustic. If you want an interval drink I'd suggest pre ordering. You are likely to be... More

Attended a performance of Don Pascale. Very impressed with the performance and the tickets were more affordable than others I have seen in Europe. The hall itself is functional, but lacks the glitz of other opera house; certainly one can see the DDR's influence there.

We were at 'Ein Liebestraum', modern ballet combined with classical singers and the magisterial operaorchestra. Zauberhaft, enchanting! The building itself is impressive as well, huge, delicate wooden walls, warm red carpets, just marvelous, splendid.

I couldn't believe it when I sat down (I'm a long legged 6'3" male) and there was around 6" space between my knees and the seat in front of me! The acoustics are excellent. There wasn't a full opera on while we were there. Instead there was a full day of events (promoting opera, I think), culminating in a free... More

Went to see the opera ELEKTRA by Strauss in this young timer of opera houses in Europe. Very good acoustics & view of stage. Imposing building with lots of polished wood inside.

I saw Richard Strauss’ Die Frau ohne Schatten in June 2014. It was one of the best opera performances I have ever seen. Bravo!

Once being in the city you have to visit a performance happening in the opera. The building itself is well maintained and the prices are very reasonable. It is located in the center of the city, parking places etc are available.

1920's style, spacious. Musically outstanding (the GWH orchestra & semi resident company). Can be booked online, then scan your eticket. Clear sightlines & beautiful sound.

The initial purpose of my trip to Leipzig was to attend a performance of Wagner's "Das Liebesverbot" a very rarely performed opera from Wagner's youth. I took advantage to attend another rarity - Engelbert Humperdinck's "Dornröschen" (Sleeping Beauty). The superb Gewandhaus Orchestra provides the accompaniment. Excellent visibility, comfortable seating. Reasonable ticket prices.
