“Excellent quality at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

Excellent opera house at reasonable prices, but be careful as overhead text cannot be read from all seats.

“King Lear - Strange experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Was my first Opera in Frankfurt and I was a bit surprised. Much older crowd, not a problem; some people wearing jeans, bit of a let down since we were semi formal; matrix like take on Shakepeare's King Lear, really strange! Performers were great but opera was not to my liking with a mix of old and new and random insertions of kooky. Whips, Cordelia suckling Lear, and special ops soldiers versus knights. Hmmmm....must have missed that description on the website! Nice facilities however and drinks weren't too expensive.

“Engaging venue, good performances”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

This opera house does not have the charm or elegance of the Alte Opera, but great shows and enthusiastic audiences make up for that.

“Cosy Opera House. Great productions. Genteel Crowd.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2011

Well, this really is a place to see something spectacular in Frankfurt. Wonderful bombastic sets and scenery, international casts, good choice of operas, old-favourites and newer more experimental stuff. A recommendable one is the production of The Magic Flute with designs by Michael Sowa. It's all very witty, and fun, and warm hearted. With lots of cute little monsters and visual gags. If you book early enough there are some very good cheap seats up in the gods, with a clear view of the whole stage. Ask at the ticket office, they will advise you. The interior of the performance hall itself has lots of lovely warm wood, and the crowd in there is always very genteel. One of the best nights out in Frankfurt.
