“Nice Theatre/Opera House in Center of Timisoara”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The Theater/Opera House is an imposing structure in downtown Timisoara. It is reflective of 'old Timisoara'. We would have like to see the interior but it was closed when we visited in late August 2012.

“Time stood still for 80 years”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

Tonight I went to the Timisoara Opera House with my Romanian family. It was a fantastic and unforgettable experience. The current opera building (two preceding buildings were destroyed by fire) was designed and built in the 1920s and hasn't changed since. The theatre/concert hall is relatively small but quite high with several floors. The red and gold and lush decorations in the Byzantine style popular in Romania in the interbellum and the way the balcony's and galleries are designed make it a beautiful and cosy place. The building exterior also bears signs of the Viennese architects who created the preceding buildings. I would highly recommend anyone to take a look or go for a show. My show, a Romanian group playing jazzy/bluesy tango, was great!

“Monumental buidling”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The best view of this building is when you are sitting in the cafe garden on the Piata Victorieii. It looks very monumental and ancient. So, drink coffee and watch :)

“Go to A show”
Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Just saw " Liliacul" In this beautiful theater. Tickets where $8.75 us. 25 Ron. Smart comedy. Understanding the language isn't necessary. Be sure to take a trip to the outside balcony for some pictures in between acts. All seats have a good view and are large by euro standards.
