Tour is interesting...best to email in advance to confirm tour times. You see more of the opera house on the tour and can them appreciate it all when in the audience. Standing seats were more than fine...better & cheaper than discount or limited viewing seats....More

We went for a classical music concert. My first ever. We loved it. Worth every penny. Great music. We would highly recommend.

This is one of iconic structures in Vienna. It deserves to be. Wherever you stand what faces you is impressive. Even if it was a plain building its musical history would make it shout.

You do not have to worry, the sight and sound are good. You will be able to see and hear in perfect conditions. With regard to clothing, if the ticket does not say anything, you can go casually.
