Another site that is worth getting a proper tour guide. You need to queue to get a ticket for your slot but you won't be disappointed. The auditorium is breathtaking as are the boxes and the halls and the staircase

Sorry this is so late. You have to go to the theatre as far as I know. We went four days before and got our tickets for the date and time we wanted. Good luck!
