I went to "Don Giovanni" show in the Opera, but I'm sure any act in here would be awesome as that one. It's a beautiful place, where Amadeus Mozart played, can you imagine that? The acoustic of the place is perfect for every show. It's a must go, and very affordable place to go (Better that the opera in Vienna).

My husband and I had a wonderful night at the opera. We went to the majestic State Opera house in Prague to attend a performance of Mozart's Don Giovanni. When we arrived, we were treated to heralds in costume as they stood on the outside second floor balcony, playing their long fanfare trumpets. What made this performance so special was... More

A group of three of us went to Sleeping Beauty here in April. Our box was higher up than I'd have chosen but at £15 each, who's going to complain? The performance itself was wonderful. Andrea Kramesova was excellent as the eponymous Beauty Aurora, and her Rose Adagio balances had me gasping out loud with wonder. The venue itself is... More

The tickets for this opera are really reasonably priced compared to other opera houses in the world. Even premium seats are affordable for almost everyone. As I am not a fan of opera in general I cannot give any information about the quality of the opera staff, however I can say that it was impressive.

We were shocked to learn that the price for tickets was only about $38, so we purchased them immediately. The opera house is lovely and our seats were wonderful-- front row, first level box. The bar had nice offerings, including food, all of which was reasonably priced. The performance was quite good, although the tenor was not as strong as... More

This is the most beautiful theatre I've been in and I'm from wexford with the national opera house. The detail is amazing and the boxes are the cheapest seats which are deadly as you feel so VIP in your own area. The soy d is excellent and the subtitles are displayed. Saw la boheme there which is the best opera... More

We went to see Rusalka by Dvorak at the State Opera and it was wonderful. The opera house itself is a beautiful baroue building next to the museum. We set in the first galery and it was sheer joy. The stage was magnificent and used video and modern means to make the stage magical and bring you into the magical... More

I am an out of musical field auditor, just try to look for something new. La Traviata from 7pm till 9.30pm, good try without falling sleep, 2 breaks in between. Orchestra playing very well, love story though old but touching. Worth try in Prague.

Once you have found the ticket office it's easy to buy tickets (cheap in comparison with other european operahouses). The interior is what you would expect of a real old fashioned opera house. We did see Il Trovatore, fortunately in Italian (it seems that sometimes performances are in Czech). The performance was noy ery impressive, but it was nice to... More
