Prague and Budapest Operas and Ballet

Jump to last reply

Does anyone have any general bits of advice for someone who has never been to an opera or ballet but would like to enjoy a few.

I have a choice between the opera Cinderella (Rossi, La Cenerentola) and Verdi's Rigoletto in Budapest. Any thoughts for a novice? Rigoletto is playing for more dates but I guess Cinderella would be easier to follow. The ballet Anna Karenina is also showing while I'm in Budapest.

I am also going to try for the ballet Cinderella at Prague State Opera, maybe a parterre seat (about 31 USD) instead of a balcony seat if the ballets have a good reputation in Prague as this level of seating is more affordable than the operas. I don't think the cast would make a difference to me since I am a novice. The operas that are showing in Prague are Carmen and Phantom of the Opera.
