“Incredible place to watch a ballet”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

A dramatic building, set apart on its own in the downtown of Zagreb. It's home to the opera and ballet. The inside looks like it came from the movie, 'The Illusionist'... classic beauty.

If you don't speak Croatian, going to see the ballet is great way to enjoy local arts without feeling left behind. We saw the ballet, 'Don Quixote' while visiting... very well done.

Highly recommend.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

An awesome piece of cultural heritage, built in Austrian style. It's really special, must see in Zagreb. If you want to see something there, I highly recommend opera, especially if you can't speak Croatian.

“Delightful theatre experience”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The theater is beautiful inside. I've seen a range of performances and events, including Nutcracker and more modern productions, award ceremonies and I've always been pleased. The mezzanine boxes are wonderful for small groups, though the orchestra level seats are more comfortable. The upper floor has a large room that is nice for receptions -- except in the hotter months, when the room becomes unbearable.
