But what a pleasant surprise! A renovated/rehabilitated Opera House, some modern mise-en-scenes, beautiful voices. Actually we have seen... More

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...

There is no description capable to describe the feelings one can experiment during an opera in this place, here both the sound and architecture combine, the view and the hearing work together, thus, little bit issue with Parking in the area.

It was such an wonderful experience to watch Othello. I don't understand the language - however the way it was portrayed was great. Inside the building is just wonderful. A great experience - everyone should visit at least once.

We were unable to get inside as they were preparing for a perfomance that night but we were allowed to wander around the entrance. The security guard was extremely friendly and even though we were not akllowed to take photos he did give us a programme of events for free.
