My husband and I are musicians so this was a must do on our vacation to Vienna. The opera house was amazing... I felt right at home! I was great to see everything and get all the history. The tour guide was wonderful and spoke great English. If you want to go to see an opera in a seat, buy... More

Visited Figaro yesterday, was happy to attend such famous opera. Good voices, good sounds, inside a building is nice as well. The only the big problem is their web site is messed up. When you buy in advance it doesn't give you an option to choose a seats so you have to buy something you are not sure about. When... More

Bought a standing ticket for 3euros, although the 4euros ticket would've allowed for a much better view of the ballet. The concert hall was beautiful, the set up and artistes were extremely professional. Great experience!

It's a beauty, particularly at night when all lit up. During the day I did the guided tour and really enjoyed it. Fun to see the inside and hear all the cool info, even got to go back stage! You can purchase tickets for the tour right inside the Opera House Next time will enjoy an opera for sure!

We took the cheap option, so cheap there wasn't even a seat, but for 3 Euros what do you expect! Our standing place had a restricted view of the stage, but we still got the feel of the Opera. Will visit again and pay for seat!

Wien is the world capital of classic music, so you can't be there and don't visit the Opera House. It's very nice and cheap, and you can see how a main opera works. I recommend the guided tour, in many lenguajes and times; and of course going to a play! You can ge cheap stand tickets if you qeue for... More

Personally I liked Volkstheater more, because of sound quality. In Vienna State Opera sound for me not so cool. But again - it's my personal view. It's a very beautiful building, you can listen classic music there and imagine your like one of nobel personas from the past. Tickets are... well, not cheap. Especially for Mozart concerts, especially in Christmas... More
