I am not a regular attendee to Opera but wanted to try the experience in Prague. There are many options and many venues. I was advised that to truly experience a good opera, only attend the State opera. It was fantastic. We saw Carmen. Our tickets were approximately $A40 but you could get cheaper depending on the seats. We purchased... More

State Opera is a really good place. We recommend visit of any famous opera´s from their programme, you cannot make a mistake. Very good located, just next to National museum on the top of Wenceslas Square (metro Mustek)

This was under construction when I went to Prague, but I could easely realised that this building is a beautiful one. It's nice to rent a hydrobicycle and see this building from the river.

I think this was the opera house I attended. It is ornate and beautiful, small by American standards, but larger than other Prague opera house.

We saw the opera Rualka by Dvorak. The interior of the opera house was breathtaking. This was one of the highlights of our European tour.

Environment and ballet has charmed us. Unfortunately, there was not an orchestra. Music played from speakers. Still, I highly recommend it.

Beautiful theatre and fun night out. We aren't big opera goers but couldn't pass up the opportunity to check out the theatre. The performance was a wonderful added bonus.

Traditional but impressive venue, with great feeling of grandeur. Well placed a short walk from Old town.
