State Opera House (Státní Opera)

State Opera House (Státní Opera)

Prague's opera house opened its doors to the public in 1888 as a German theater, and for almost 50 years it put on German language shows by R. Strauss, Mahler, Seidl and Klemperer.

Recently (in 1992), it became the State Opera House, and now offers works by Verdi, Puccini, Mozart, Dukas and J. Strauss and more. The richly decorated neo-roccoco style is definitely a thing to see while in Prague.

My Score:
My sister asked if there were reduced price seats for pensioners. She was very politely told that the discounts were only for Chech pensioners. When she found out that full priced tickets were so cheap she wished she had not bothered to ask. We were there in January 2004 and will be returning again in Jan 2005. Comfortable front row seats in the upper circle with Champgne (well Sekt but who is quibling?) in the interval cost us less than £10 each for a magical and memorable evening. The performance tends to start at 7 p.m. so you can enjoy a cake at tea time and a light supper after the performance.The opera house has very good heating and free cloakrooms. If you go in the winter, like us, you can take your indoor shoes in a bag and leave your boots in the cloakroom. There were several families near us with little girls in party frocks.
