We went for the last-minute standing tickets for the performance of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake at the famous Staatsoper. The standing tickets get you a great standing spot right at the centre of the theatre (€3.5 on the first floor; €2 on upper floor) and gives you a great view of the stage. These last-minute standing tickets cannot be reserved, so even if the performance is sold out (which is VERY likely if you didn't reserve weeks, if not months, in advance), you can still go for these tickets. But be prepared to be jammed and crammed into a pit, instead of having your own spacious standing room because they do try to get as many people into the standing area as possible—but don't worry, there are still limits to the cramming and you'll still be able to see the performance without feeling intimidated by the presence of others.
