Really pretty inside bar is a tad steep tho ! saw Hairy Bikers and had a good laugh they put on a great show. The seats are comfy we had a seat in dress circle we could aee everything clearly. The lights where good loos clean. They even hire binoculars at just a pound. I would see another show at the Opera House any time

Very uncomfortable seating if you are tall or have long legs.
Needs updating, quite an old building.

A fantastic venue to see any type of performance. I have attended concerts, plays and Pantomime here and have loved every performance in this beautifully restored old opera house

We attended the Levellers acoustic show at the Opera House. The venue itself is beautiful, the acoustics are excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. But I just can't understand why - when booking bands into a venue like this - there's no flexibility on 'opera procedure'. Music fans going to a gig generally want to go to the bar, order a drink and take it away - there's no need for the whole 'ordering drinks for the interval' malarkey. Obviously it works for theatre, but in this context it just slows everything down. And closing the bar while the band are on is even more daft, especially at a time when the theatre is trying to make more money to repair the decor. As a paying punter, it's surely up to me to decide if I want to miss two minutes of the gig to get a pint?
