“Bring the children to the ballet”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

A nice way to spend an evening with the children.
The productions can't compare with those of Milan or New York, but tickets are easy to acquire - meaning you don't need to purchase months in advance- and the best seats are about 20 euro!
So, in terms of quality and price this is a wonderful opportunity.
I've seen people buying tickets at the door on the evening of the production too.
When my children were young, we'd pull a small group of about 8-10 friends together and book the entire box.
This way, when young ones got fidgety they wouldn't disturb others.
You can even bring some snacks into the box (if you have it to your own group) and discreetly nibble while enjoying the performance. No rumpling wrapper sounds please :)
I found the ballet to be a better option than the opera for most kids.

“Where the magic happens”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The exterior of the building is not the best exponent of the gems inside. However, we hope that the Opera House will have the same destinty as the National Theatre, which is currently being renovated. Bear in mind though that the facade hides exquisite performances inside and terrifc artists. We have recently enjoyed Tosca and it was an amazing experience.

“La Boheme”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

the play was really nice and for such price! 25 lei a ticket on Balcony second row. The most expensive was 55 lei. You can buy the ticket directly in the opera. It was a nice experience.

“fantastic night out in Bucarest - Opera La Boheme was good quality/ top singers”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Its very important that a financially stricken country like Romania does not compromise on one of its tourist attractions. as such, the Opera House is quite important.

We listened to La Boheme / with a great line of singers.

Great night out
