Even though the history of Opera in Krakow goes back to the seventeenth century, there has never been a dedicated space for this art. That did not happen until 2008, when this swanky new building was completed and opened. With a seat capacity for 720 audience members and state-of-the-art acoustics the venue has quickly made a name for itself 4 terrific production values. There are around 200 performance throughout the year which include ballets and musicals. The theater has become a powerful voice in the operatic culture of the world. The theater is also the organizer of the Krakow Opera Festival. Check out the interesting sculpture by Igor Mitoraj in front of the building.

The visit was really nice. Despite some opinions after building about the architecture in my opinion it is really nice - modern but having some classical reflections. The sound was very clear, none was missing either. Really nice place!
Looks like a Cineplex but it is a real Operahouse.. Noisy ventilation during the performance is disturbing. This kind of Opera Architecture is not worth a visit but there are great artists from Krakow performing there.
Very nice atmosphere, the play wasn't that good, but it was worth going.
No aircondition. Or not working during Carmen on April 8. No food. Just soft drinks and some cakes. Big in size but not great otherwise. Terrible parking. You pay and you wait to drive out. In our case 20 minutes. A man on duty. No change. Not organized at all.
As you would expect of a major Opera venue the facilities are what they should be. The acoustics in the auditorium are great.
