Wonderful building with superb acoustic, right in the centre of the city.
Fountain and red carpet, capacious entrance halls, sweeping staircases, diabolical signing and awful dining, but we go there for the opera and that is truly exhilarating with international cast and the Gewandhaus orchestra....More
The Leipzig Operahouse is a nice building especially at night with all the lights on. It stands in Augustusplatz and its style can be deemed to be in line with the modern architecture, though the inclusion of some neoclassical elements is in fact remarkable. The...More
The architecture of the opera house is very beautiful, especially at night. When the lights are lit, the place is full of character.
There is a fountain in front, together with the lighting gives the place a 'magical' feel.
It had to pleasure to go Le Nozze de Figaro (Mozart) and I enjoyed every minute of it. Not only because of the excellent cast, but also because of the surprisingly well acoustics in this fine concert hall.
The ticketing procedure at the website went...More
Saw Piraten (Pirates of Penzance) an super production, nice interior. The only negative side is that as a tourist on the website one thinks that the production is in the Leipzig Opera House, but it isnt. I and 11 other people found themselves in front...More
While in Leipzig I had to go see a Wagner Opera, it's only fitting.
The Opera Haus is beautiful and very well kept.
It was a much smaller Opera house than most I have been to, but it was a pleasant surprise. The production was...More

Hello Monica, if you haven't already found tickets, go to the website of the Oper Leipzig or Eventim to purchase tickets. There aren't many left over; however, depending on how much you want to spend, each performance still offers at least two seats next to each other. Best of luck!

I would like to see an opera while in Zurich and see that La Traviata is playing on Oct 5th. A quick question: Can anyone provide any review of the cheaper seats (platzgruppe 5) at Opernhaus? Are those seats "ok" for viewing? Thanks for your help!

That does give a bit of an idea - thanks for the link. Your experience is what I'm worried about. The cheapest tickets for the Zurich opera are 60CHF cheaper than the next most expensive which makes me wonder if there's much of a view from those seats.
Train tickets in Nuremberg (3 Replies)
Hello, I need to travel from Nuremberg Opernhaus train station to Nuremberg Hbf. Whilst I know that tickets can be purchased from ticket machines on the day if travel, could you please let me know the following: 1) are there manned ticket counters at the Opernhaus train station and if so, from what time would the counter be open? 2) if I purchase a one way ticket the day before from Opernhaus to Nuremberg Hbf, can I use it the next day and how do I know if it needs to be validated? ...More

The Nuremberg Opernhaus station is a U-bahn station. It is a short distance from the Nuremberg Hbf and you should just walk the distance and avoid all the ticket worries.
