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...

I was a regular at this venue during my time living and working in Kiev. Ballet/opera tickets 2001-2005 cost approx £2-5 pp. Staggering for such wonderful performances. Nothing really much has changed!! My wife and I took our in-laws to see Carmen and Sheherezade. Whilst I was not overly impressed by Carmen, Sheherezade was excellent. But this review is about...

Went to see Swanlake and it was amazing! Best seats in the house was just around £14. Great experience for all.

I went with a friend to see Carmen and Sheherezade and is was truly magnificent. The set of Sheherezade was beautiful and the energy of the dancing was spectacular. We also sat in the best seats for the equivalent of £10, so you really have no excuse for not going!

I am already proud of myself being there! It is really the place you should visit in Kiev! It has the charm and atmosphere of some kind of royalty!

For 300UAH or about $15 you can get the best seat in the house to a ballet or an opera. The building is amazing, great architecture, beautiful chandeliers and marble it all feels very opulent. If you are traveling on a budget you can get cheaper tickets but its worth splashing out. The ballet i saw was good maybe 7/10... More

Take the time to see the ballet or opera while in the city. The outside is not so impressive, but the inside is spectacular. I am not an artsy individual and do not often see the ballet or an opera. But even for a sports guy like me, the inside was spectacular and the performances were amazing. I was very... More

I think seeing a performance at the National Opera House during a visit is a must. The building itself is not particularly interesting, in comparison to the Odessa Opera House, and the inside is still not renewed. But the opera and ballet performances are great and many people perhaps do not know of the quality of the performances there. There... More
