“If you dont like to visit opera this is place to visit anyway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We dont visit Operas very much, but this building is worth of visiting.
An old Operahouse is nice ti see and taste itself
Our Opera was Carmen and the sounds of Music is well-known for all
Take a place very upstairs you can see all and the music comes nicely to you
People are very polite and of course you can take a drink or two before presentation
or meanwhile¨have a nice evening
ps it is easely to go to Opera using Metro and stop by Eroloir
we took a visit there a day before and bought tickets from Operas box

“superb opera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

i like it very much. can concure with any other operas from around the world. the proprety is very alike "la scala", the acoustic is perfect, and this is a very high qouality opera. the tickets fares are unbeliavable cheap.

“Opera MadHouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The building are not the best to serve to its purpose... i belive romanian atyheneum it can stand it much better. Acoustic is not excelent as well not the artistic act. If you visited Covent Garden, Scala di Milano , etc you wont get the same touch here. Most of the good artists are playing in western europe and artists that remains are tring their best. wich best is not amaizing all the time. To the end is a good place to visit for some cultural infusion .

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Great atmosphere, friendly staff and fantastic place to watch an opera! We got 2nd row seats for Friday opera for 'Rigoletto' the day of the show for only 55 lei per ticket (17 USD). If you are in town have your hotel check if tickets are available and enjoy a show.

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Beautiful building, didn't find it easy to book on the internet from England but managed to book seats but wasn't sure where in the theater i had booked. The ladies that greeted you were very friendly and helpful our seats where comfortable and the opera was very professional.
