I didn't attend an opera show inside as long as opera is not quite my cup of tea.But it's impossible not to remain impressed by this wonderful majestic building.It's one of the most old buildings in town,with magnificent architecture.

Unfortunately I could watch an opera concert in this place, but only by entering the main hall is already something nice. The place is huge, all luxury decorated, fency details take place all over the walls and stairs. Great.

This building was clearly visible from my hostel windows, that too a panoramic view. They have lots of events inside the building such as ballet concerts, young people's workshops and of course, opera. I think the tickets start at like 8 or 10 Euros. This is a major attraction in the city of Nuremberg.

Went to a wonderful performance of LaBoheme last night in the opera house in Nurnberg. Old and delightful bldg with wonderful acoustics. Center seats are best as the box seats above the orchestra pit are somewhat restricted in viewing the full stage.

Wanted to buy a gift voucher for the opera as it is a fantastic opera house. Usually I could only say positive things about the opera. I went there with my 5 month old baby. Walked to the front and there are a few steps - quickly ran into ask the lady (in German) if I could buy a gift... More

Built over 100 years ago Staatstheater Nurnberg is designed in the Art Nouveau style. It is visually commanding and impressive to behold. I was visiting a friend who lived nearby and we booked tickets for Puccini's 'Turandot'. Seating inside is spacious and comfortable with more leg room than you might have exerienced in some other theatres. The large stage affords... More

Beautiful opera house which far exceeded our expectations in all respects. We arrived on the off-chance and were delighted to get good tickets at a fraction of the price you would pay in Brussels or Paris, and then enjoyed an excellent performance of Berlioz's Damnation of Faust. Intend to visit again next time I am in Nuremberg, and would recommend... More

The performances there are sometimes very modern. So not everybody might like them. In any case, the prises are quite modest for a good Opera

We were able to get tickets online ahead of our trip... a great way to plan a special evening. People watching was a highlight... from the students up in the balcony with cameras before the performance to the well dressed operagoers enjoying beer and pretzels at intermission. Viva Verdi!
