The food, service and wine are so good, they even remembered me from last October, I think should be number one in Zurich, and great that they are making more space, will return soon.

Lovely evening seeing Tosca, super performance all round. The Opera House is very attractive and a pleasure to visit.

This opera house is perfect. It's small enough that there are no bad seats, and the atmosphere is both exquisite and accessible.

I'm almost half a century old and had my very first visit to an opera. We went to the "Entführung aus dem Serail" from Mozart on Dec. 30th, which was the sponsored performance they do occasionally (tickets were only 1/3rd the price, but were sold out after ten minutes or so a month ago). Since it was my first opera, I can't compare it, but I was overwhelmed (reminded me about the scene in Pretty Woman with Julia Roberts). Went to tibits just around the corner to get some quick but delicious vegetarian food before the opera (read my other review).

The Opernhaus Zurich hosts among its staff a series of excellent singers such as Vesselina Kassarova, Elena Mosuc ,Cecila Bartoli, Jonas Kaufmann, the late Laszlo Polgar just to name a few great names. The orchestra is also a highly qualitative one. The venue itself in neo-classicist style enjoys good acoustics. Unfortunately the rows are quite packed and seats are not very comfortable for anyone taller than 1.70. All in all you can enjoy high quality opera performances for tickets which are quite expensive like almost everything in this country.
