    World famous place. Dress up smartly and look the part eventhough you only have the cheap(er) ticket. 35eur ticket in halbmitte gallerie is good value, could see all of the stage clearly.

    Standing tickets for 3-4 euros. Better to sit in line early (5-5:30 pm). Check in jackets/bags for free.Do research the shows: we felt Elektra could have been done better but the music was phenomenal.

    General manager Dominique Meyer produces a repertoire of world-class opera at the Staatsoper. Visit the main hall to see restored 19th-century frescoes before having a cocktail in the grand Tea Salon.

  • Katrina K.

    The worst seating layout I have ever seen in an opera-at least 1/2 of the seats are w/an obstructed view while the prices are skyroqueting (but you see the same that standing guests with a 2€ ticket).

    Katrina Kaktina · April 24, 2014
