Best Venue or Place For Classical Music & Opera Experience in Prague

Which is the best venue or place to experience classical music or opera in Prague. Estates Theatre, Municipial House, St. George's Basilica at Prague Castle, Spanish Synagogue etc. In other words, if you had the cahnce to pick up just 2 places in Praugue, which would be your choices?

The Rudolfinium.
The Municiple House is great if in the main hall,and the Estates just lovely.
St Georges is more toursit stuff and alway blooming feezing even in high summer. For me for the sheer experince it has to be the Municiple House followed by box seats at the Estates.
For quality it has to be Rudolfinium.

We've been to the Estates Theater twice, so in my opinion, you can't go wrong with the Estates.

It totally depends on what you want to listen to. Religious music? Opera? What sort of opera? Concert?

I would not make the decision upon the location but on the what they perform.

Not the religious music. Classical music concerts or opera would be my concentration for a Prague experience...

For classical music concerts definitely the Rudolfinum. For opera the National Theatre is better in general than the State Opera. For Mozart fans the Estates Theatre.
