Just trust me. .. if you are into opera or ballet you have to see a performance during you time in Lviv. My fiancé and I saw Snow White and the seven dwarfs and had a great time. It was an amazing performance in a beautiful opera house.

One of the best places for spend you evening in Lviv. Very beautiful building, very-very-very - take a small excursion over it with the profecсional guide - it's the first. Than you may have some drink in cafe in basement - for the best understanding of art. You will be glad of performance - opera, balet or concert. The impressions... More

We saw Strauss' "the bat" here. The building is amazing, you truly feel as if you are stepping back into the turn of the 19th century. Everything is authentic and gorgeous. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars is because I didn't find the performance all that spectacular. But that is personal preference and very likely influenced by... More

Very inexpensive with some great performances. Underneath the theatre is a river - go downstairs into the basement and cross the bridge to the bar.

It's a world class opera and the building is no less beautiful than those in eg. Paris or Milano. Located close to the Market Square, at the beginning of Prospekt Svobody (Freedom Avenue).

The small walk that you can enjoy all around the opera, the city hall and the old town is what makes visiting this city worth it

The building is very old, not destroyed in WWII, and is a must see building to tour. Photography can be used and the historical aspects of the building are most interesting.

The theater building is amazing. I don't think I have ever seen it equal. The place is beautifully and tastefully ornate with lots of symbolism and history. Strongly recommend taking a tour and going to a performance. We toured the building and then went to a performance of operetta favorites. The acoustics were generally magnificent but they did have a... More

The Lviv Opera House is truly magnificent, inside and out; with its architecture, myriad sculptures and beautiful interior decoration, this is truly a venue worth visiting on its own merit. That it also provides excellent acoustics, plays host to amazing performances and is usually fairly cheap to boot, this is definitely a must-see if you're into the classics! There are... More
