Tea Room

The Tea Room in the heart of the opera house, preserved as it was in the days of the monarchy. It was used to host only the most VI of the VIPs: the Imperial family, high-up aristocrats, the fabulously wealthy. It connects directly to the Central Box where those VIPs can enjoy the show in privacy and comfort.

That’s how it’s still used, mostly. Regular people can rent it out for weddings or special receptions if they’re willing to shell out €€€, but it’s mostly used by celebrities, 1% patrons, and so on.
