Catch an opera or ballet at the Süreyya Opera House

Music Classical and opera Kadıköy Süreyya Operası sahnesi Cemal Emden

What is it? Housed in a beautiful building built by the politician Süreyya İlmen Pasha in 1927, the Süreyya Opera House is the prime location to catch an opera or a ballet on the Asian side of Istanbul.

Why go? Due to the fact that its stage remained incomplete, Süreyya functioned as a movie theatre and wedding hall for many years until its restoration in 2007. Now re-opened to fulfill its original purpose, Süreyya is worth a visit for its architecture alone. Nostalgia gleams from the walls of this building and its art deco foyer, which was modeled after the Champs-Elysées Theatre in Paris.

Don’t miss: Performances here sell out pretty fast, so we recommend checking their website well in advance.
