Budapest Opera House Or State Opera House, Budapest Reviews
Undergoing renovations at present (Sept/Oct) The front of the building is covered and the main auditorium is closed. Tours still happening with free mini concert. Staff are making tourists aware. Would be a good place to visit normally.
The opera is closed for renovation at the moment but they do give tours everyday at 2, 3 and 4 p.m. The tour takes about 45 minutes. You won't be able to see the auditorium but it's a fun, short little tour nevertheless. The English guide was a young woman who knew quite a bit and made some jokes on the side. At then end, two singers will give a small performance, this was for me the best part of the tour.
It was a nice guided visit. Although there is some restoration work going on until 2020, there was an opera concert at the end of the visit of 15 minutes. It was nice.
Main part was not visitable but in compensation we got a short (15min) opera prefromance. It was a very nice building from. The inside and the tour was interesting.
Stunning. Smaller version of the Paris Opera House. The Hungarian States Opera House is currently under renovation, scheduled to be completed in Jan. 2019. The Opera house tour was unable to access the performance hall due to the renovations. In lieu of that we were given a live performance while seated on the steps by 2 incredible opera singers. It was amazing how their voices filled the space without any microphones just as these ladies would perform in the large opera house. The architect of the Opera house also designed St Stephen's Basilica which is located nearby.
