I visited the Hamburg opera as a tourist and saw three performances over three nights (Madama Butterfly, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, A Midsummer Night’s Dream).

I bought two tickets on the 4. Rang, in Loge 2, for 16 euros each. Exciting to see the audience and the orchestra and stage below us. Comfortable seats, comfortable lounge, relaxing terrace. With a more exciting production, we'll definitely be back.

I've been to two operas here, Don Carlo and The Magic Flute. The scenery can be quite minimalistic, and they tend to mix modern and traditional together with costumes, dialogue etc. They also include the audience in scenes, and in the case of Don Carlo,...More

This was a surprise treat from my husband and I was delighted. The opera was la Boheme and musicality was seriously high and the orchestra incredible. The opera house itself is really modern and everything seemed fairly well organised, it was easy to get drinks,...More

Saw a modern ballet piece and Rigoletto here during a short business trip here. Both are great productions, but beware that the audience is quite senior (>75). Flirting is hard during intermissions.

I went to see the "magic flute" from Mozart. They used video and modern lighting which was very surprising. Good to see them taking risks even if sometimes the singers are not put enough in center stage. Both the outside of opera and the room...More
