Did not have the luxury of visiting inside this wonderful building but the outside provides a fascinating view. Plenty of photo opportunities with fountains at the side. Well worth a visit.

One would expect this ballet to be superior and it was. The performers were superb in the dancing and acting abilities.

We opted for Swanlake. The Opera is a must, it is marvellous. Some of the dancers were world-class and the costumes just beautiful. The audience, mostly Odessites, was enthusiastic and opera lovers, we could tell. Very interesting place to observe the local population. Not to be missed.

I've been to many national theaters throughout Europe. Many say Vienna is the best. I don't understand why. After the renovation is theater is, in a word, ethereal. And Tickets are anywhere from $4-40. Good seats for $15 for top quality ballet company performances.

I met my future wife out in front of the Opera House. We are very happy. We met there on the mornings of both our first and second dates. There is a huge fountain on on side and a courtyard with outdoor restaurants on the other side. The Opera House seems to be central to all that is Odessa.
