With approximately 1100 seats, Zurich Opera house is the smallest of the world’s large Opera houses. Part of its charm lies in this fact and also its extremely varied program manages to draw regular crowds here. Awarded the Best Opera Company of the Year in 2014, this venue is definitely one of the finest theatres in the world. Dating back to the 19th century, this opera house has a gorgeous neo classical façade adorned with the busts of Wagner, Weber and Mozart. Watching a show at this iconic theatre promises to be a memorable experience.

Although it’s quite small compared to other operas in the world, it is beautiful and has a nice sound. The service is excellent and I would recommend you to have a drink during the opera break in the terrace that has a nice view either to the Christmas market in winter or to the sunny and warm lake in summer.
One of the main attraction in Zurich, located next to the beautiful Zurich lake. It is one of the leading opera houses in Europe. It has been the home of the Zurich Opera for centuries. It was great experience visiting this opera house.
Location is good as you can easily take metro and Disney land bus shuttle but the hotel is very compact.
For Zürich expensive not extremely but still on the expensive side. Rather dirty cushions. Charging for a Water, when you order something else is a disgrace. The service was slow. Despite not beeing a very busy hour and enough staff was present.
There is a reason this is one of the top houses in the world. If in Zurich make sure this is part of your itinerary. They have ensured the acoustics are tremendous. The space is well designed and although I can see that a few of the sight lines may be difficult that is true of most venues and requires some thought into seat selection.
