The first inkling that I had made a mistake purchasing tickets to the Wiener Mozart Orchestra at the Vienna State Opera house when I was continuously accosted in the square by men dressed as Mozart (and annoying as flies) to buy tickets to this tourist trap performance. Though I ordered my tickets online months ago, my husband and I were... More

They give a 45 minute tour of the opera house including the back stage area. You don't have to be an opera fan to appreciate the beauty and history of the building.

Worth paying for the tour! Very comprehensive and you can take photos everywhere. Beautiful building. Shame it was closed for the season - would have paid to go to the opera.

The building is an interesting mix of different period architecture which was very controversial for its time, but quite beautiful. The tour gives you access to the back stage area as well as the museum. If you are an Opera fan, you really should see it.

Even though we're not true opera fans, we enjoyed the tour of this magnificent theatre. Opera is such a key part of Vienna's history and culture. The tour take you through beautiful rooms, and paints a picture of the love the Viennese have for opera, plus, how it's woven into the city's history. They group people by language, and the... More
