I did not enter the building. But the façade and the environment (the beautiful park) is awesome. It is really a place which deserve a nice walk or a picnic

The beautiful Opera House was constructed in 1863 but has been refurbished many times. There are over 200 performances annually. The tickets are reasonably priced. The most expensive tickets are around 40 euros and the cheapest ones less than 10 euros.
