fantastic guide, educational, visual insight was fabulous. we felt like we are in europe amongst 20 something europian tourists. make sure you go when the weather is nice. it was 20 degrees when we went and view from inside out is like you are looking at a postcard. our guide spoke in english but she knew german and mandarin. she always stopped to ask if we had any questions and was very polite. one hour is enough to go around and get informed about opera house and its backstage and how the stages are moved according to specific opera requirements.
