Fodor's Review

Along with Milan's La Scala, New York's Metropolitan, and the Palais Garnier in Paris, this is one of the world's greatest opera houses. The resident troupe has mounted spectacular productions in the past, though recent productions have tended toward more contemporary operas. Whatever the style of the performance, the extravagant theater—also home to the famed Royal Ballet—delivers a full dose of opulence. The box office opens at 10 am, but lines for same-day tickets for popular productions start forming as early as 7 am. If you wish to see the hall but are not able to procure a ticket, you can join a backstage tour or one of the less frequent tours of the auditorium.
