As we visit Prague once a year, we always visit an opera performance in the beautiful State Opera. This time we saw the operetta "Die Fledermaus" (the Bat). It was not as interesting as many of the operas we had seen earlier, but still enjoyable. The singers are always very good. We use to recommend this operahouse to everybody who... More

My husband and I went to see the National Theatre's production of Swan Lake. The building interior is absolutely out of this world! So impressive! The production was terrific - seats were very comfortable - reasonably priced. I'm so glad we went!

This performance co-insider with our holiday and I'm so glad I booked. The ballet is one thing in that it was truly spectacular to such a high degree of professionalism, athleticism and to my unfamiliar Eastern European style. But the thing that blew my mind was the building itself with such beautiful architecture and fine detail, my photo snaps do... More

My first taste of Ballet (Swan Lake) was here in the State Opera. The beauty & grandeur alone is well worth a visit. We were seated on the ground floor near the back in a central position. We could both see perfectly well and enjoyed the whole performance immensely.

My wife, son, 2 relatives and a friend attended a performance of Carmen here in December 2015. The first trick is to get here by taxi and to negotiate a fair price with the taxi driver. I speak Russian and German so if you speak one of these languages you may have better luck in dealing with taxi drivers who... More

We visited the State Opera on Christmas Day for a performance of Rusalka, the opera was fantastic and we were completely blown away by the opulence of the Opera house, an absolutely incredible experience for such a reasonable price!
