It cannot be compared, for the building, with the Odessa opera house but it is still very nice. The quality of the performances is of a very good standard but of course, with no comparison with the Mariinsky in St Petersburg.

Had never seen an opera before but took the chance in Lviv. Do I regret that?, hell no! What an amazing and different experience. Beautiful opera house, great singers!

This building is one of those you just have to see when you in Lviv, but go inside, because outside it is nit so beautiful.

We went to a 200th anniversary of T.Shevchenko, and it was absolutely amazing. It wasn't packed at all, and the theater seemed to be a bit small, nonetheless it was an amazing performance, and the opera hall is ABSOLUTELY beautiful inside. Tickets are pretty cheap, and you can usually buy them the day of :)

There is no place like this in US, and very few in Europe. If visiting Lviv, go there to see no matter what performance, you will not be disappointed.

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
