The Opera House is a big imposing old building a little way from the old town, the actual auditorium is more modern inside. There was a tiny cafe where I couldn't get a seat to sit down after I'd bought my coffee. Big free cloakroom but queues for small toilets, same as everywhere.
Had bought a ticket online which I collected just before, but it wasn't the actual seat I'd selected. Not ultra posh, but everyone well turned out, so felt a little too casually dressed.
Chaos on leaving, as it was raining/snowing, but managed to get a taxi to get me away.
Opera itself was underwhelming - many of the singers seemed second rate, and the production and acting were old fashioned. The whole thing lacked portrayal of emotion and didn't engage you. Good orchestra though and some moving chorus pieces in the second half.
