Owner description: This magnificent new-Renaissance style structure, completed in 1884 and modeled after the Vienna Opera House, is home to both the State Opera and the State Ballet.

Amazing building, both inside and out! The Opera however was very random. It was this weird breakdance musical with everyone opera singing their lines! We actually left half way through - the show itself doesn't come close to the professional work of London's West End.

Still worth every penny to just sit in the most beautiful theatre I have been in and I have been to a fair few!!

The Opera House was a magnificent structure. So very beautiful with amazing architecture and paintings. I also went to a ballet there in the evening and it was a great experience. One of the best Opera Houses in Europe, and definitely worth a look!

The biggest scene, the most decors, an excellent accoustic quality, comfortable seats, an air-conditioning "avant la lettre", in short, extraordinary, rich, beautiful, big, golden, worth the visit!

Even if you don't go to the opera it's worth popping in to see the decor. It's breathtaking and well worth the visit

The Opera House tour is a little expensive, although very interesting. But the great about this Opera House is they offer quality seats for great concerts and with excellent prices, usually startinf from 500ft per seat.

So it is recommended to do the tour and come back later to catch a concert!
