Opera in Vienna, Prague OR Budapest?

Jump to last reply

I have read that experiencing the opera when I'm in Vienna is a MUST. However, sadly there is only a ballet on the dates I am in Vienna. I will be in Prague and Budapest as well, and was wondering if there would be any difference watching an opera in Prague or Budapest as compared to Vienna? I am not much of an opera fan (never been exposed to it before) but I want to experience it as part of the culture there.

I am more interested in the experience at the theatre than the opera itself. A little checking has shown that there will be Madame Butterfly when I am in Budapest, which is a good opera for 'beginners' or so I've read.

Any advice on whether I should go for the Prague/Budapest operas or forego opera completely if I can't go for the one in Vienna?

And if Budapest is a go, are there standing room tickets like the one in Vienna (where tickets are released 90 mins before curtain call and people queue at the venue)? Cause it looks like the Madame Butterfly show I'm eyeing is running out of online tickets.
