We went to the ballet which was very well done. The building itself is beautiful. Seats were spacious and comfortable. During intermission we checked out the opera costumes that were on display. Wow! I really enjoyed seeing the extremely ornate costumes! I highly recommend checking out the exhibit. There is plenty of time during intermission. You can't get away from... More

With the largest stage in Europe this Opera House is well worth a visit whether to watch a ballet or opera. The building is grand, beautiful and impressive, impossible to imagine that is was completely rebuild after WWII. On the first floor there is usually an exhibition. When we visited it was of costumes worn in various operas. We have... More

We visited the opera house to see the opera Oniegin by Tjajkovskyj. The scenography was beautiful and the whole experience was great for both eyes and ears. The building is beautiful and learning its history and how it was rebuilt after WWII makes it even better. There are also different exibitions. During our visit they also had exibition of costumes...

The Teatr Wielki (Grand Theatre) itself is a very impressive building on the edge of Warsaw's old town which really adds to the atmosphere. As Warsaw residents we've been quite a few times and have enjoyed almost all the performances we have seen, the most recent being Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.

Even though this opera house might not be in the top 10 leading opera companies in the world, it is worth visiting because of its location (in the old town area), a nice square in its front, but predominantly because it's one of the biggest (by dimensions) opera houses in the world! If you ever visited Palais Garnier or La... More

This could have been (and it actually aspires to being) one of the most interesting opera stages in this part of Europe but thanks to its management it's becoming more and more provincial with every season. What kind of performance would you associate an opera house with? If you answered "opera", you might be surprised, since there are months where... More

Incredible performance in this ballet, based on the Brothers Karamazov with music from Rachmaninoff and Wagner. Sets and dancers were superb

I have been here several times - at marketing award events and at ballets. The building itself is very beautiful (especially the ceiling in the main room where you sit) and makes a big impression! The ballets performances are OK - often with a modern twist - simple costumes, raw decorations, but absolutely moving music. There are snack bars in... More

I've seen Romeo and Juliet ballet and Merchant of Venice opera here. The quality is very high. Excellent value for money. Attend a ballet or opera here and you won't be disappointed.
