It is amazing building outside and inside! It is one of the most charming theaters I've ever been. I was lucky to be there and hear the opera "Il Barbiere di Siviglia". Visited in May, 2012

The "Opera House", as I have called it for years is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world! I first visited in 2004. It was nice, but needed cleaning and considerable maintenance. The Opera house was constructed, I was informed, in circa 1700's. At that time it was the largest theatre- Opera House in the world. Many years... More

A MUST SEE AND DO!! 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... More

Nicely restored, Odessa Opera is one of the diamonds in architecture and decor. Must visit for visitors and beautiful outside. You can really feel the fin-de-ciecle there

I went to a ballet for kids (only one while there). So I don't think I saw their best, and I have only seen ballet on TV so I can't comment on quality. It was interesting and inexpensive for a booth. But building is worth wandering around.

You should definitely see this building from inside. Even if you are not big Opera fan and are not able to be there in the evening, just ask for a sightseeing tour, which is usually at 12. Fantastic marvelous halls and stairs after great reconstruction finished few years ago. And one of the best curtains in the world

It is said that Odessa Opera building was ranked with the second place in Europe, after the Vienna's one. But I have a different point of view and would vote for the first place for sure. No doubt, this is the must to see place while you are visiting Odessa. But the WOW effects you can get not only outside,... More
