It’s a nice opera house. Big, but doesn’t compare to Chicago, New York, or even LA. Historically speaking, it’s a gem. The exterior is ornately pleasing and it’s by no means a slouch. But once you have seen Phantom in Chicago, NY and LA it’s...More

In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards
Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks
such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera),
Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral)
and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’
former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as
Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse
and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The

the third row will be too close to the stage. I recommend sitting further back. And if you are higher up, you will be able to see the orchestra too. Enjoy the opera!
