“Don't miss!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

First, is the beauty of the building, then you step inside and you are overwhelmed from the floor, walls, ceiling and statues of how majestic this Opera house truly is. Then if you are truly lucky you will enjoy on Opera experience like none you've ever had. I was moved to tears. The Front row box seats are the best. If you can't take in an opera, they offer tours of the building and staging.

“Great venue!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Saw Swan lake. Friendly staff, warm and friendly. Book events on line 60 days in advance for good tickets. Ignore street hawkers trying to sell tickets to lesser events.

“Do the tour”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

From the outside is big and has beautiful architecture, but the best is inside. There is a tour to visit the opera, the one I took was on Sunday 10AM. They divide the crowd in small groups according to the language.
The tour is very informative and can show you from the luxurious entrance hall to the backstage. Even the private room used by the emperor they present to you, always adding some interesting explanation about every room. Very good way of spending 40 minutes in Vienna.

To the ones willing to enjoy a performance and don’t have a ticket reservation, they always put some tickets on sale a few hours before the show. All you have to do is queue and buy your ticket for very cheap prices. One person can only buy one ticket, meaning no one can stay there and buy the tickets for the rest of the group.

“Opera House Guided Tour”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

I went on a guided tour in the afternoon. The guide told us the history of the opera house and the past famous people in the opera house. She also told us about the current people working behind the scenes and the technology they used. These help me to appreciate the opera house and the long hours these people put in. Later on, I went back to the opera house to catch an opera show!

“Memorable Evening”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Elixir d'Amour was on the night we visited. Everything was just perfect. Accoustics were excellent, the performers - absolutely fabulous and the orchestra were in top form. We could not have asked for more. Highly recommended
