Very beautiful building near the Tivoli Park. Just a few minutes` walk from the Old Town. On both sides of the building there were costumes of pervious (and current) shows on display.

Amazing front entrance to this building is one of the nicest pieces of architecture in Ljubljana. Great location, as well.

We booked tickets for the ballet 'Swan Lake' online, and looked forward to the show for weeks before our visit. Tickets were good value, and we had great seats near the front for under 40 euro. The orchestra was excellent, as was the ballet, and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The Opera house itself is well worth seeing, in... More

First of all, just arriving at the building feels special. The outside is magnificent as is the interior. I thought it would be huge inside, but not so. All of the orchestra seats were fairly close to the stage. We had 2nd row seats for Swan Lake. We purchased the tickets the day before at the information center, and I... More

One of the most stunning old buildings in Ljubljana! It is easy to find on the walk between Tivoli park and Presern square - so take some time to have a closer look! If you have time and oportunity do visit one of the performances - just to see the spectacular interior as well...

The opera front looks like an ancient Greek temple with it's columns, statues and proportions, Neoclassical in style. Between the pillars and around the sides are baroque style flourishes.

The beautiful theatre had one of the besyt Opera I have ever seen - Carmen - sung beautifully, perfectly, by all participants. Singers were backed by a 50 piece superb Orchestra. Additionally, The Ballet: The Nutcracker, was also performed flawlessly, beautifully, and again the Orchestra was superb. Tickets are quite reasonable, and both experiences were welcome rays of sunshine while... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of seeing a fantastic performance of La Boheme at the Opera House. The building, inside and out, is stunning. The interior is spectacular and, unlike many other opera house that we have been to, the Lubljana Ballet and Opera House is relatively small. My guess would be that it seats about 500 guests....
