“Charming glittering opera house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

Zurich's opera house is very charming, rather small but glittering and welcomingly warm. We saw a few operas there and will definitely return in a not too distant future.

“World class venue and performances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Attended a performance of the Pearl Fishers and was struck by the quality of the strong male voices. The Opera House is a very easy walking distance from the old centre of Zurich alongside the lake.

“Great building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I was not inside, just outside. The location is great just near the lake on a big square. So why not have a walk near it and talke some pictures?
