Don Giovanni had its first performance in 1787 in this opera house, with Mozart himself conducting his opera. Although the staging was a bit unusual, the music and vocalists were wonderful. It was essentially a sold-out house when I attended. The opera house itself is...More

This is a beautiful opera house and one could picture Mozart there conducting the Marraige of Figaro -- which is what I saw. Unfortunately, the staff were either very courteous or downright surly. One usher did not smile at anyone that I could see the...More

Just finished watching I ballet production of the snow queen. Highly recommended. Beautiful production right costumes and excellent music. The opera house itself is exquisite. The upper floors are less recommended because you cannot see the entire stage. Well worth a visit.

We didn't get chance to go inside but if it's anything like the outside it will be stunning. It's easily reached by either tram or walking and is very close to the Jewish quarter. The state Opera house looks stunning during the day but at...More

We didn't go inside but the building from the outside is huge and has a very nice entrance. It's worthwhile to pass by to take a picture. This site is near other historical places of tourist interest so it's not a waste of time.

I only saw it from outside on our way to the Jewish area. Handsome building, great piece of architecture. It's located next to the river/bridge as well, you can make you way to the castle side from here.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

We ordered intermission servings upon arrival (having drinks at the bar before performance). It was easy way to do it with bartender and I do not know about possibility to make it online... Happy Opera - time!!

I bought the ticket for the balcony When I was seeing opera in State Opera in Prague. I think decent clothing will do, such as fancy cocktail dress for woman or suit for man. Not necessarily to be too grand like the Oscar.
