Pre-book an e-ticket for the ballet to really enjoy this ornate building. Superb golden lightshades, detailed gold patterns, cherubs and full sized figures support pillars and balconies. Do not miss it if you like Baroque interiors ( a guidebook calls it neo-rococo, for those in the know). The ballet performance was excellent, too.

The tickets we booked were sold to someone else when we were already in Prague! We came to Prague with our family speaking about visiting Prague Opera as one of the main events of the trip. We were trying to buy six tickets online 2-3 months in advance but the system didn’t work. We contacted the booking office trying to... More

This is a world-class venue situated in the Mustek District, accessible via the metro green line (Muzeum A) or red line (Muzeum C). The interior is ornate, the exterior elegant, an overall fine concert hall not just for opera connoisseurs. The close proximity of Vienna, "the City of Music," often overshadows the great music history Prague has, with the likes... More

We came to enjoy Carmen at the beginning of December 2014. State Opera in Prague is exactly what Prague and Czech Rep is known for: Beautiful architecture that breaths history. It was such a beautiful and welcome change....to see people formally, properly dressed in a breathtaking opera house, that is truly magical. Along with a first class performance, dress code... More

My class went there to watch an opera. I forgot the name, I'm sorry. I'm not really the person who loves operas, but it's just really beautiful and it really was a great experience! I don't know how much a ticket costs, when you don't travel in a group. Have fun!

Wow! The interior of this opera house is worth the price of admission alone! Simply breathtaking! We bought last minute and reasonable tickets to Carmen on a Saturday night. I was worried about a certain dress code but I felt perfectly comfortable in dress pants and a fancy knit sweater set and pearls. Most were dressed in black, smart casual... More

Came to see the Romeo & Juliet ballet performance and was thoroughly impressed. The building itself is beautiful and the performance stunning.

Ordered our tickets on line for performance of Rusalka on 26th December. They came within 4 days we paid top price tickets and thought we would treat ourselves to a box as we would never be able to afford that at home, 990Kc per person. An amazing place even if you don't like opera the building itself is an experience... More

One of my best experiences in Prague was to watch the opera of Carmen in Prague's State Opera. ACCESS: We arrived at the Opera on a cab which dropped us off at the front Main doors. If you plan to access it thru the Metro, I think Metro Line A is about a block or two away and is in... More

We had a great evening here watching Rusalka. There were drinks and snacks available during the intervals which were surprisingly cheap. People attending were very well dressed although I think they're not too strict on dress code beyond the obvious like dressing smartly and not wearing jeans. The building is beautiful inside and the seats we had were comfortable with... More
