I enquired as to whether there was any opera on that day and was told there wasn't but there was a tour I could take at my own leisure for 10uah (45p??) The building is grand, colourful and historical and is kept in fantastic condition. The tour allows you into the main hall on the top balcony where you can... More

Visited June 2013. The Lviv Opera is a elegant piece of Ukrainian architecture built in the beginning of the 20th century. It's a cultural and national monument to all of Ukraine. Unfortunately, my friends and I came on a day where they were performing a graduation ceremony in the theater. We stayed for an hour or so to take photos... More

We are not really opera buffs, but as we were visiting the opera theatre we noticed that a production of the Ukrainian opera ' A Cossack from across the Danube' was shortly commencing . Tickets were still available and 2 balcony tickets cost us 28 UHR ( about $A4.50). The production was magnificent as was the building. Whilst taking a... More

It's a great ballet & opera theater. The most expensive tickets for 2 hours ballet, in the middle of 1st row, during weekend cost 7,5 EUR. Unfortunately inside no place to drink coffee during a break.

Beautiful is what the opera is. Perfection is what the performance is. Every detail is executed perfectly. Great to visit with friends, family, or Bussiness partners. Really affordable. It is in the city centre, so you can visit other places while there. It is a must see while in Lviv. :D

This building is not only beautiful from outside, its interior is also breathtaking. The tickets' prices are very nice. It's about 6usd for a concert, of course not a show of some piano genious or Kirov Ballet, but still you can watch and listen to nice music for almost nothing. The second cool thing is that me and my friends... More

This is one of the most beautiful buildings in L'viv. I didn't get to see a play but there is a cafe/restaurant below that you can access through the side door. This door leads to the toilets too, and you can see the river that flows directly below the city. Great for people watching from the fountain in front of... More

This is an amazing historical building, with incredible frescoes and beautiful decorations. The curtain is an original painting by Siemiradzki - and we were lucky to see it. Performance itself was good, too - however if you choose opereta you must understand ukrainian language :)
