I've been to Sureyya Opera House for the first time to see Faust opera by Istanbul State Opera and Ballet. This small building is so warm and impressive. Istanbul doesn't have much opera houses. So a must see.

We must say many thanks to Kadıköy Municipality for having this very old and historical building renovated and kept in orijinal shape as an Opera House for our community.Highly recommended to watch an event here at this beautiful opera house as you are going to feel the true ambiance of this venue.

Whilst it could not claim to be one of the great opera houses in the world, the 570 seat Sureyya provides a great experience for anyone visiting Istanbul. We were staying at Kadikoy, but even from the European side it’s a very easy crossing and a 10 minute walk to the building from the quayside. Just check the performance finish... More

It's a nice neo-classical building in Kadiköy with a more or less art deco interieur. But the ballet was fantastic modern.

You have to be quick but if you can get tickets, this is an exquisite experience. I usually get a seat in one of the boxes. This is what secular Istanbul was like before the big theocratization that has been taking place. This is a perfectly refurbished 19th century opera house with great accoustics. Take your camera and get lots... More
