“Old and needs update”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I liked internal details but after going to Vienna Opera house I was not impressed. Prices are very reasonable. Staff could be little bit friendlier.

“Bravo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We saw the Hungarian National Ballet perform Onegin here and the theatre was so beautiful it reminded me very much of the opera house in Prague. The day prior to the performance we toured the theatre and learned of its history. During a performance, or at least the ballet, the bar is set up badly, whereas there is no flow through and even if you go straight there, unless you are like the 10th person in line you will not get a beverage before it is time to go back in the theatre for Act 2.

“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

It is smaller than I would have expected, but the inside is amazing with marble all around. The outside has two sphinx-like sculptures that don't really fit, but the artist who did the composer scuptures told them if they did not take the sphinxes, they would not get the other scuptures! Hard bargaining! Fun to see.

“Amazing building with interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Was lucky enough to visit the Vienna opera house earlier in the same trip. I am not a fan of Opera, but am a fan of spectacular, historic, preserved buildings - especially those with such a great story as the Budapest Opera Theatre

“A real little gem of a theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Booked tickets online for the Operetta a couple of months before our trip and paid £6 for two tickets! Wow....our seats were on the side balcony with a great view. Although in Hungarian, subtitles were available & we thoroughly enjoyed the Operetta. This is a beautiful place to visit and we highly recommend!
