A thoroughly enjoyable concert combining a degree of formality but with a good connection between the audience and performers, concluding with less formal encores of traditional favourites and with audience joining in. A memorable evening.
Great experience! Beware that if you order the tickets on line, you have to queue for more than 20 minutes to get your tickets.
Great service. Breakfast included and they will cook delicious omelet for you. Room is clean except some carpet stains. Good wifi and tidy quiet room when window closed even it's facing to main street. It's right next to train station and tour meeting point. Location is in dirtiest part of the Munich but safe and walking distance to everything.
Nice to hear Mozart and visit the inside of the theater. The performance was good but not extraordinary. Everything is for tourists and a bit superficial.
We enjoyed the concert with its variety of musical pieces being played, particularly my favourite Blue Danube and the Magic Flute. The conductor was fun and got the entire audience involved in clapping with the music. Though its performance is not as good as that of the Schönbrunn Palace concert, it is worthwhile to experience a concert in such beautiful opera house and also get a complimentary CD. It is a bit disappointing that the CD was not for each person, but for each party attended the concert.
Good concert with a nice atmosphere. We got excellent seats (superior category). It is allowed to take pictures during the concert and all the flashlights were rather annoying. Although, we enjoyed our evenig.

It was a pleasure to go to the state opera house, but the show was a little disappointing. Not enough real opera, which would have made the evening even more special.
Being in the Vienna State Opera is a memorable experience. Mozart is always delightful but overalls this was a kitschy, touristy concerns. Not for regular sophisticated concert goers. The consumes made it even more kitschy. And the prices wer too high for what the concert offer re.
There are many concerts like this one offered in Vienna.
Although the concert, costumes, and Opera singers were fairly good, the venue of the Opera House was MUCH too large and the acoustics were WAY below satisfaction due to the large amount of air/space. The string section simply got "lost".
I suggest future travelers pick a concert at another venue, which you offer, that will be much smaller and enjoyable.
The opera itself was great, but the seats we got by paying for Cat A were lousy. I would suggest booking directly on viennaconcerts or booking while in Vienna so you get good seats for the category you pay for.
