A Must See

One of the most beautiful Opera Houses that I've seen - very close to other sites with easy access. The national orchestra was in rehearsals and it was a treat to hear them play.

Now that the exterior has been renovated, the Opera House is a complete masterpiece. Even if you don't have the time (or tickets) to witness a performance, the building is worth a visit. The interior decoration is rich and the space has the look of a 19th or early 20th century lyrical theatre, although it is more recently built. The... More

If it were not for my Phoenix/AZ-based friend who came to Bucharest for X-mas and was keen on how Romanian cultural life is going on, most probably I would have not go to see any Opera Nationala Bucuresti presentation over the winter. But what a pleasant surprise! A renovated/rehabilitated Opera House, some modern mise-en-scenes, beautiful voices. Actually we have seen... More

We saw that the Bucharest Opera House were doing Eugene Onegin on the Saturday night of our weekend stay (we always check out what local productions of any stripe are on in a city we are visiting). The website is really really difficult to navigate and it took several attempts to make a booking which is a bit pants, but... More

Every visit in Bucharest includes an evening at the Opeta House - where I had the occasion to attend beautiful shows : opera, ballet, concert for a very good price and excellent seats. Nice experience even if you don't understand the language (opera). Also very nice interior.

The best seat for £10 and the opportunity to mingle with the Bucharest opera lovers is frankly not to be missed if you are that way inclined. And the opera was very good too. You can book on line using the website, You have to use the common sense to open the account. - since you are abroad,you can get... More

“La fille mal gardée” („Useless Precautions”) is the best ballet we had in years at Bucharest National Opera, nothings less than dance performances I have seen in Paris. I have missed the opening night with great Romanian dancer Alina Cojocaru, Leading Principal Dancer at English National Ballet, but I had the privilege to admire Johan Kobborg, now Artistic Director of...
