An architectural marvel, the structure of the Vienna Opera (AKA Wiener Staatsoper) was planned by the Viennese architect August Sicard von Sicardsburg, while the inside was designed by interior decorator Eduard van der Null. It opened on 25th May 1869 with Mozart's DON JUAN in the presence of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth!

Fantastic place to visit. Don't miss the guided tour of the opera where you get the opportunity to go backstage and understand the behind the scenes workings of opera. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained a lot about the history and current workings of the opera. Highly recommended.
Slight warning, I might be biased because I love the magic flute. The 2 hour queue for standing tickets ended in a memorable night. I do recommend going early to queue and bring exact cash! That would be either 3 or 4 euro depending on your choice of seating. Take note of where you are in the queue s you can predict if the best spots and each section has been taken up already. Bring a scarf or something to mark your spot with!
Fabulous!! We went and got standing tickets (SUPER CHEAP) and because the show wasn't sold out we allowed to sit down! The theater itself is absolutely stunning! And it oozes Elegance! Especially during a show
Great performance. Only had second row box (Loge) seats which is effectively standing up. I think the seats right above the orchestra (which are the same price category) would have been better.
If you couldn’t afford to get a ticket, the opera house will do a live broadcast in front of the building during April, May, June and September. There are some seats or you can just sit on the ground. The opera will be German with German subtitles. I read the summary from the official website to get an overview of the story. Prepare some food, drink, make yourself comfortable if you plan to watch outside :)
