The building is truly stunning and clearly Budapest society takes it seriously as everyone was dressed up. But the house has some strange aspects, the seats are unnumbered so finding seats is messy and they insist you check in your coat. (although you can ignore the entreaties as we did!!)
We saw La Boheme which was very poor. The actors needed to come to the front of the stage to sing, which meant they were standing in a line. This works for some parts but is ridiculous when the couple are falling in love but not looking at each other. Acts 2 and 3 were confused and the Italian was not particularly good. In contrast the music was excellant.
Certainly worth a visit when in Budapest.
