It was a very interesting and beautiful experience. We collected our tickets from the ticket counter in Hodjapasha theatre. We got fantastic seats. Theater was easy to find - it is clearly visible from the main street just before the Koska sweets shop if you approach from Sultanahmet.
Come at least 20 minutes in advance as there is a queue to get inside which moves fast and you get free refreshments as well.
