25 awesome opera gifts for opera lovers

Large budget gifts for opera lovers

#1 Tickets to see an opera

I will start this list with what’s probably one of the best opera lover gifts; a ticket to an opera.

On the website Music & Opera, you can find tickets to shows around the world. So you can either buy tickets for a show close to the recipient’s home. Or if you have a larger budget, you can buy a ticket for an opera in a famous opera house and take the recipient on a trip. And if you decide to take them on a trip, you should definitely also include the next gift.


#2 Opera house tours

Tours around famous opera houses are also great opera lover gifts. It’s even better if you combine it with the previous gift. Because watching an opera performance is even cooler if you understand what’s happening behind the screens too.

Though, I am sure that opera lovers will also be incredibly happy with just a tour around an opera house, without watching a performance.

You can check out Viator to find tours to famous opera houses, such as the Sydney Opera House or La Scala Opera in Milan.


#3 Phantom of the opera clock
