As Budapest is the capital of operettes we ordered on line tickets to the Kissing Lady. Ordering was a bit difficult as in the middle of the action the language changed to Hungarian, but we managed thanks to Google translate . The performance itself was a joy and the three hours passed very quickly . The actors were outstanding and... More

The theatre is lovely, without being too awe inspiring. The seats were roomy and comfortable and the performance was excellent with clear sub-titles in English.It was a packed hose when we were there, as expected for a very modest price.We enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine in a nearby bar/cafe beforehand.

Budapest in general is the country that made me the bigger impression so far. The theatre is just amazing, really big on the inside and very very impressive. The architercture is victorian and once you enter it feels like you are in a palace. You can find really cheap tickets of three euros each but for very specific seats and... More

I saw Anyegin in February and it was awesome. The opera house is polished with gold and historical architecture, and was a great atmosphere. You can get a reasonably good view from any of the booths. Dress nice! For girls a dress is good, and for guys a buttoned shirt and pants will suit.

Went to see The Golden Brush in Nov 2013. It was my first time at the Opera House and I was very impressed. Lashed out and got a special Box it's worth doing this as the cost of the tickets is worth every forint, great value for money. The auditorium is beautiful, the Grand Staircase is also beautiful. I've never... More

This - popular with the locals - music theatre is a treasure. I went to The Land of Smiles, a Franz Lehar operetta - a light hearted jolly piece. It was well sung, and well produced and it was very cheap. The dancing and bravado shown by all on stage was also top-notch stuff. I had a great seat near... More

We bought tickets online before we went to Budapest! It was a great experience, we saw the classic A Christmas Carol with a Hungarian twist! :) the musical was in Hungarian but they have english translation on top.... So it would be best to get seats on the second floor. One of my favorite to do in Budapest!

We went to see this performance last night and were lucky to get tickets. The Land of Smiles by Lehar Ferenc is one of his best 1923, in our opinion, as it has beautiful melodies, which requires technical ability to sing. Unfortunately, none of London establishment has this piece in their repertoire and has not been sing since 1955 in... More
