Tickets to opera are reasonable and can be bought online in advance. Nice local experience. Gown and tux not required. Business casual suffices and is what most locals do

It is a very beautiful piece of architecture.Used to be known as Reduta Palace or Concert Hall. While on a walking tour or exploring the old town you are bound to see this building. One cannot miss its imposing facade.

If you have a possibility, go for a ballet to the old, historical building. It's beautiful from inside.

Hi, We will be in Bratislava on holiday from the UK and would like to see the ballet Sleeping Beauty at the modern theatre at 11am on Saturday 15th April. We have never been to a ballet (or opera or classical music concert) before and so it will all be new to us. I've looked at the seating plan to book tickets but am at a loss to know what are considered the "best" seats. I guess for a ballet it's important to be able to see the stage and the dancers well. Any suggestions most gratefully received. Thanks for listening. Gill Allard

We are planning to go to the ballet on Sunday night (28 Feb) and was wondering if there was a dress code please?

Smart casual would be acceptable - like dress pants and jacket for men and dress for women. No sneakers or jeans.
