I went to the National Opera to see the ballet "Don Quijote". We were sitting downstairs, between the left side and the middle, and we had no problem to see what was going on on the stage.

We love this place. Whenever we have the opportunity to visit Cluj we reserve a place at the theatre. The grandeur of this place and its history makes you feel as if in another world. Last time we were at Swan Lake and we were deeply impressed. We look forward to return very soon.
