Best time for me to visit, hard to beat the Christmas Pantomime. Great for the kids to enjoy, before Santa arrives.

Good looking building. Pity there were no shows that was interesting during my stay. Worth checking out just for the facade alone.

We were on the open top tour and did not realise we were at the Opera House until out the front. It has a small frontage and has been extended over the years. Not as impressive as some Opera Houses.More

My sister and I were in Belfast for 3 days. We went to My fat friends show at the opera house. The performance was great. The opera house is so beautiful and I would definitely recommend going to see it.

Had a wonderful night watching Titanic The Musical in this classical building. There is a medium size seating area with drinks and food options. The seat was very comfortable and great views to the stage. Located just minutes walk from the bus and train station.

I have not booked the box, but have watched those who did and they are usually having great fun. If you can afford it, then yes, it's worth it for a special experience.
