You can easily pick up tickets at the box office, although signs are in Ukrainian it's pretty easy to work out what's playing and when if you know... More

My Ukrainian wife took me to opera and ballet performances in this beautiful building. I was new to this type of art but I was absolutely amazed by the artists and the wonderful performances.

Theater building is nice but not the same nice like Odessa Opera house. It’s smaller and interior is more simple But ballet dancers and orchestra are unbelievable! I saw “Le Bayadere” and was impressed with performance a lot. Price is 300 grivnas for 2nd row which is nice )

If you plan to visit Kiev, take a chance to visit National Opera and ballet theater. The building itself is incredible beautiful. I advice you to attend ballet because Kiev school of ballet has really good reputation. For example, Svetlana Zakharova, prima of Bolshoy theater, graduated education in Kiev. It's more classical then well known theaters. But still it worth... More

We took in the ballet Romeo and Juliet for about $19! Seventh row, middle. Really. It was excellent and worth it just to see the historic building.

Where else can you see either a ballet or opera nearly every night of the week for around $15.00 in one of Europe's most stunning settings. This place is not to be missed and must be included in any itinerary of Kyiv.

If you don't like opera anyway you must go to National Opera Hous. Big, rich, luxuary. I think one of the best Opera House in the world. Just choose any performance and go there and i am sure you will not regret about it.

Having been to the Opera in a number of countries I had this on my must-do list and was very very happy I did, I was worried about tickets selling out as there is no online purchase system so you can only buy once in kiev which is unfortunate but its not a problem, tickets don't usually sell out til...
