This is a beautiful opera house and one could picture Mozart there conducting the Marraige of Figaro -- which is what I saw. Unfortunately, the staff were either very courteous or downright surly. One usher did not smile at anyone that I could see the whole time.
a note: the ticket says that this is a cultural centre and therefore one should dress accordingly. I would say not more than half the men wore jackets and maybe half of those wore a tie. So the experience did not quite capture the most possible.

Second time in opera in Prague. This time Mozarts easy going Le Nozze de Figaro.

Bought tickets just a day before and got the price of 12 eur / ticket which is just amazing price for any opera. Charming and smallish venue, we loved the atmosphere!

If visiting Prague, this is not the most stupid ways to spend 3 hours and listening beautiful music!

We didn't get chance to go inside but if it's anything like the outside it will be stunning. It's easily reached by either tram or walking and is very close to the Jewish quarter. The state Opera house looks stunning during the day but at night with the lights come on it's simply beautiful.

It's definitely the most beautiful opera house I have ever seen yet I'm not a big fan of them. The interior is elegant and massive with lots of pink and gold with and an intimate setting. I strongly recommended you to make an advanced booking to avoid disappointment. Don Giovanni played during my visit and it was an experience I'll live to remember.

We didn't go inside but the building from the outside is huge and has a very nice entrance. It's worthwhile to pass by to take a picture. This site is near other historical places of tourist interest so it's not a waste of time.
