“A must for lovers of classical music while in Buydapest...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We spent the weekend in Budapest, and were lucky to get tickets for both Rigoletto (Saturday night) and Tosca (Sunday noon). Excellent performances. (The tickets Sunday were one third of the price from Saturday in the same seating area.) The building in itself is a landmark and well worth visiting, even when you are not attending a performance.

“A midsummernightsdream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This ballet was great and like a fairytale, since you have Felix Mendelsohn beautifull music mixed with scary music and sounds when the puk is there

“Beautiful Building from the outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Tours when we were there were at 3pm and 4pm. These, unfortunately did not work for us, so we did not get to see the inside.

“Glamourous - at least the building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The building is really 19th century splendour, somewhere between the old Vienna State Opera before it was destroyed in the war and Garnier's Paris Opéra. The acoustics are poor as the scenic productions are we saw during our visits, while singers and orchestra are doing a good job.
