I only had 4 days and filled that with as much as I could but could not make it to a show. I walked around the place and even that is worth some time.

On the 8th of July 2015 I went to the opera Aida. The show was excellent. Aida was performed by Monastyrska, the star of the theater and also internationally reknowned opera singer. No complaints there, fantastic performance of the classic. The rest, however, was very disappointing. Starting from the surroundings of the theater, the square is paved with granit tiles... More

The Opera House is a lovely building, although surprisingly small once inside. We were visiting to watch Swan Lake. The seats are very spacious in the stalls. Our balcony seats were chairs, but comfortable. Plenty of leg room. The web site for this building is in both English and Ukrainian, but unfortunately you do need to visit the building to... More

I don't particularly like ballet but I enjoyed this experience. The seats were quite wide, audience well behaved and the building itself shines with gold. The skill of the dancers is notable. 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.
