Nice theatre in the center of Ljubljana. Went there for Pepelka (Cinderella) which was great. Buy tickets in advance, as it is small and usually full. Try to book from row 10 or less. Staff is really good.

It was full , inside of the Opera House remembered me the smaller size of the Bolshoi Theatre , ambiance was so impressive. Performance of the ballet and the Orchestra indeed were so wonderful, magnificent. For us it was an amazing and unforgetable. As... More

The Opera House is a bit of a walk from the core old town, but it's still worth the effort to admire the building. If you're lucky there might even be an opera or other production to catch in the evening. Unfortunately for my visit that wasn't the case.

Two chech architects planned this building, which is a real Opera House, like it should be. We had a chance to get in - there were a performance for school children - and could take a look inside. It is red and gold, small but very nice.

Classical and, I would say, usual opera building, but somehow it glows. It is very nice, perfectly renovated. Near the ticket office you may see small exibition of costumes from the shows.

Very beautiful building near the Tivoli Park. Just a few minutes` walk from the Old Town. On both sides of the building there were costumes of pervious (and current) shows on display.

Amazing front entrance to this building is one of the nicest pieces of architecture in Ljubljana. Great location, as well.

We booked tickets for the ballet 'Swan Lake' online, and looked forward to the show for weeks before our visit. Tickets were good value, and we had great seats near the front for under 40 euro. The orchestra was excellent, as was the ballet, and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The Opera house itself is well worth seeing, in... More

First of all, just arriving at the building feels special. The outside is magnificent as is the interior. I thought it would be huge inside, but not so. All of the orchestra seats were fairly close to the stage. We had 2nd row seats for Swan Lake. We purchased the tickets the day before at the information center, and I... More

One of the most stunning old buildings in Ljubljana! It is easy to find on the walk between Tivoli park and Presern square - so take some time to have a closer look! If you have time and oportunity do visit one of the performances - just to see the spectacular interior as well...
