Went to see La Bayadere ballet a couple of days ago and had a really enjoyable evening - if you want to experience the ballet (or similar arts), then Prague is the place to do it (for a quarter of the price of London. You don't have to be a culture fanatic (we're not)... just go and take in the... More

The trip would have been completely different without the this one evening we spend in the opera. We took the most expensice seats in the hall in the front lines but the seats in the "balconies" are much cheaper and I believe give a very unique experience.

We decided to go to an Opera while in Prague and saw La Traviata in this absolutely beautiful Opera House. The production was well mounted and excellent. The Opera House was quite stunning. I believe they conduct tours of the Opera House when a performance is not scheduled but actually seeing a production was well worth the effort to get... More

Beautiful building. We went to see Carmen and thoroughly enjoyed it. You can have a glass of bubbly and a lite bite (albeit standing up) before the performance.

If you want to be in the Mozart mood, this is a place to be. Many locals though, a code dress will be observed; but you will not be denied the entry if as a tourist you're not prepared for... Try going during the day; it seems to be less expensive!?!

Glad I went, but the show was long and the seating was a little confusing. My tickets had no seat numbers on them, so we were left to find something and just try to keep a seat. Students do get in 50% off and two of us saw the show for $12 US. That's awesome, but I was glad I... More

We loved the opera house in Vienna, too, but honestly, Prague's was more beautiful. The production was top-notch. Great musicians. The best thing we did in Prague.

Worth going just to see the interior. The performance was very good, not the best, but the stage sets were appalling, perhaps due to lack of funding. So boring as were the costumes. The good thing is attending the opera in excellent seats will not break the bank either.

We booked an opera in advance at home over the internet. Everything was all right We were sitting in a balcony on the second floor, very very beautiful building. During the break you can drink cava for only 2 dollars, very cheap! Even when you are not an opera lover, it 's worth to do this!
