We thought if we were to see an opera then we should do it in style. Tickets cost 660 CZK (around £20) for a box which was a bargain compared to the UK. The opera house is stunning, everything you imagine and more. We had the second rows in Box 24 on the 1st level. We were lucky, the 3... More

We bought tickets for Madame Butterfly and were not disappointed by the quality of the music, which of course is most important. Otherwise the production was not fantastic, and there were some technical difficulties. For example, the subtitles disappeared halfway through the first act. I didn't mind that so much, as it is difficult to focus on the music and... More

Felt like royalty sitting in a box for Verdi's "Nabucco." The architecture is fabulous---lots of gold an gilt and chandeliers, etc. Box seat chairs, however, were a bit uncomfortable---orchestra seats looks more comfortable. Enjoyed an inexpensive, tasty sandwich at intermission/interval.

This is a lovely old theatre, easy to access by metro or tram and have attended a great opera of Carmen (its duration lasted 3 hours). The performance was in French language, however there was a screen with translation in Czech and English languages above the stage. I had a very nice evening enjoying the excellent performance and the beautiful... More

Great place, great opera. I went therre to see Die Zauberflöte of Mozart. It was a magical evening and not too much expensive but don't forget to get well-dressed like the Czechs.

We are on honeymoon in Prague and decided a nice treat would be to go to the opera. The first thing which ruined the evening was when we asked directions for the seats. One of the staff was unbelievably rude to my wife and I. Apparently you need to physically print your tickets off before hand. Since we are only... More

What a magnificent place - and from talking to the staff you soon find out they're real music lovers. Acoustics perfect, stunning performance. Going back!

If you like pachabel this is the place to go. There are other small churches in Prague that play baroque but here is the best, Almost in the heart of the city the prices are not that high , even more if take in consideration the quality of the acoustics and performers,

Oh what a lovely experience. Not big international names but so what? The local performers are of a high standard and what's best is no Regietheater. I'll shout that from the rooftops! No adolescent re-imaginings! We saw Rigoletto performed as Verdi would have recognised it. No Mafia rubbish. No transformation to sixties White House. Oh how refreshing to be free... More

We attended an Italian Opera that was playing there. The views are simply spectacular. The acoustics are good. The facility is not very far from the tram stop and good inexpensive restaurants. You can grab a bite and see a good show.
