“Wonderful theatre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I have been many times to various shows here and each time have been very pleased.Yes there may be minor problems with a shortage of ladies toilets ,and it is very difficult to get any refreshments in the interval, due to the number of people trying to get to the bar,but this is a very old and beautiful building, and I love visiting it.The shows I have seen have been excellent, and I have booked again for a show in Spring,when my husband and I will stay in Buxton, when we also plan to visit Chatsworth House, which I believe was designed by the same person as the Opera House ,we also love Buxton!

“Good show but poor designs of theatre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went to see the pantomime, Peter Pan. Really enjoy the show. The atmosphere are great. It was an old building which gives its atmosphere but also has its inconvenience. Firstly, there is only one way to go out in the break time and hence the queue are long. Places to have drinks and breaks are limited and narrow. Thirdly, there are only three toilet for the ladies and we spent the whole break time queuing up.

“Lovely theatre not just for opera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I go regularly to a wide varity of shows. Box office is open until shows start so you can usually get a last minute ticket.
