I attended five operas while I was in Prague at these venues: National Theater, State Opera, and Estates Theater. National Theater is superior. I did not go for the building. I went for the music in all three buildings. I returned to the National Theater. I did not return to the State Opera because of the quality of the productions.... More

We went to the Opera House on the first day in Prague. After checking in the hotel, went to the box office a couple of hours before the evening show and bought Carmen tickets. Only one couple before us at the box office, no hassle and we got very good seats. There are quite a few good restaurants close by.... More

It was a privilege to be there, listening to the excellent performance of Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. I was in Germany for a longer stay and went there for a concert in the weekend. Glad I did it.

We went to the state opera as part of our chosen destinations in Prague. We were not disappointed. As should be, most in attendance for Don Quijoti ballet and that was nice as a show of appreciation for the professionalism of the artists. The State Opera was amazingly beautiful and our box seats were perfect. The architecture in this historical... More

The venue is gorgeous -- and small -- bigger than La Scala but smaller than the MET Opera in NYC. performance was very good but they cut some arias-- only one intermission and the whole thing was only 2.25 hours!

Although it is stated that there is no official dress code, on arrival we were told "There is a dress code you know" by a rude woman. We were dressed in smart jeans and jumpers with shoes, while some were wearing tuxedos, others were wearing tracksuits and trainers. We were made to feel as if we weren't good enough to... More

The building is really great. Imagine yourself in the Muppets theatre in the seats of Waldorf and Mortimer. We had never seen an opera and we took this as a bargain opportunity to have a first experience. We liked the opera. Even our kids did. The subtitles above the stage enables you to follow the details. But what stays in... More

A wonderful performance in a stunning opera house. This opera has few female parts - most of the singing parts are for men, and we just loved those male harmonies!

A grand building from the days of Empire. Beautiful interior, with a real sense of grandeur and history. Seats, particularly in the boxes, are much cheaper than in London, however they are basic and cramped and the view of the stage, poor. Seats in the main body of the hall are far more comfortable. As a fellow guest said 'boxes... More

Prague is a city of music. There are many rich offerings ranging from opera, symphony, chamber music and organ recitals. The performances are held in architecturally distinguished buildings. On a short three night visit to Prague I was delighted to find through the website www.pragueexperience.com I could book opera and concert tickets at short notice. I went to a performance... More
