Performances can be variable, but I really liked the building itself, and the facilities. It has a small café with nice espresso and cakes if you wanna have a chat with friends. Plus point for the screen above the stage where you can always follow the libretto.

The building itself is beautiful. Well worth going up a floor or two to have a look at the ceilings etc, also in the hallways. We went to see a performance here with my parents. Overall the singers were quite good, and the orchestra very good. The singers improved a lot in the second act, and then were quite phenomenal... More

We saw Rigoletto for 35zl each. The opera hall is small enough to feel intimate and the performance of both the orchestra and the singers was very good.

This is a beautifully restored old building and attendance is quite high. The ensemble seem to have an amazing repertoire and the rendition of the Barbier of Seville was very nice. The staging was nice and traditional with good costumes. Prices are very affordable compared to other European cities.

You don't need to understand opera to enjoy it. We attended a German opera with polish subtitles. It was excellent entertainment. I enjoyed having wine before the show, the coat attendant was extremely helpful to my mother with a walker. Beautiful theater - small enough to have a good seat anywhere. The performances are incredibly inexpensive compared to USA -... More

Going to the opera is a highlight in Poland., You can see it in the dresses and the suits of the visitors. The regulars will know to get their (not expensive) tickets, but for the visitors to the town it's a different story. There seems only one way open and that is to be there at the box office in...

Small, only 12 rows in "parterre" poor visibility in last three rows which are not stepped up. Excellent sets and voices. We saw Boris Gudanov and Magic Flute. It seems you can't book on line, so last minute only gets you what is left. Nicely decorated. Watch for taxie ourside possibly overcharging and not using meters.

I was very blesses to see La Traviata in Wroclaw as well. It is my favourite opera, and that is because it is the first opera I have seen. I was just expecting the building inside to be bigger, as it looked quite big from the outside. I was a little disappointed that the singers were wearing 20th century dresses...

The newly renovated building makes the proper space for the interesting team. I saw them first at Bard College and liked what they did, so went to two performances in a few days. I was not disappointed. Carmen was vivid and full of live, even though not all singers were up to par, but the leads were. National Polish opera... More

Stunning value. Day time performance of the magic flute and student tickets only 25zl for 2.5hour show. Lots of well behaved kids enjoying the opera. Very unstuffy and how opera should be presented more if future generations are to be inspired.
