Stunning Opera House! We watched an opera and it was one of our great experiences. I'd highly recommend not only a tour but watching a show here. The actors, the orchestra, the acoustics are all brilliant. One of the must-do activities in Vienna.
This is a beautiful building. We didn't go inside however several folk we talked to said it was magnificent. Word of warning here, if you intend to go to a concert but your tickets direct from the box office. Another place in Vienna well worth a visit.
We visited the Opera as part of their Guided tour (costing €9 per person), the schedule for which is displayed on their website. It was a good experience, during which we saw the Opera Hall, intermission rooms, Emperor's chambers and were told about the rich history. The Opera has been reconstructed after the World War and is very beautiful. Opera tickets are advised to be bought well in advance and as part of tradition, an Opera is never repeated in consecutive days.
The information shared during the tour was interesting. You would know a lot of side story of the opera house. The English tour guide who spoke Scottish accent was excellent in his job though perhaps all tour guides talked the same story.
We had a delightful tour in english of the Opera house. Back stage was available so we were able to see the huge number of staff getting ready for the next day production. With new productions almost every day the transitions take an enormous amount of commitment and skillful organization. It was fun to see the transitions between sets going on backstage. I look forward to seeing an Opera production in this historic and beautiful hall.
