This Operahouse is very special. It's a very beautiful and classy builing, but what hits you is the feel of the house. There is a strong historic vibe to the opera, and it has a lot of "soul". You can feel all the athmosphere of years of opera, tears, and laughter. Tickets are very cheap compared to prices in western... More

The building is gorgeous, interior is great to but if you decide to enjoy a ballet night, lower your expectations. We went to the Nutcracker. Music - amazing Seats - get the first row on the balcony, closer to the stage. Their website doesn't give an adequate plan so you might think you get the first row where in fact... More

I visited Opera Theater as part of a guided tour to Odessa. The opera house is magnificent, the lounge is filled with many portraits and opera memorabilia and the history of the famous performers and conductors who have performed there is breath-taking. I regret I didn't purchase more thing from the gift shop. I think it is well worth visiting... More

Have seen several performances here. Very well priced and the building is simply stunning inside and out. You can book 5 seats in your own box over the stage for the same price as a single cinema ticket in London. The performers are not the rising stars, but every time has been solid and well worth the experience.

We spent one day in Odessa and were lucky to get three ballet tickets for the night. Visiting the opera is a must when in Odessa. The tickets are cheap, the building fabulous, the ballet classic and classy!

We have visited Odesa Balet and watched amazing artistic evening with their prima balerina Maša celebrating 20 years of her dancing. What a dancers, coreography and music! It was really evening to rember. One notice there is no heating in the theater so dress well!

Went to see "Sleeping Beauty". It was a good performance, not Broadway quality, but for the price, it greatly exceeded expectations.
