This is definitely a must do - even if you are not especially fond of ballet or opera ( why not try!) as the 1901 built in a neo- renaissance style building is spectacular both externally and internally. Thus far all programmes for the performances have included English translations.

I've seen two different productions here, and the quality is quite high, but the most fun thing is just being inside the Opera. It's a lovely jewel of a building and the seats are very, very good and close to the stage. It's very hard to figure out how to buy tickets (I had locals give them to me as... More

The architecture was quite wonderful, one can go every few steps to capture gorgeous pictures. The seats were not overly comfortable but this should not be overshadowed by the spectacular setting. The salon room should not be missed.

While in Lviv we decided to see an opera in the Lviv Opera house. We purchased tickets a few days ahead of time and had excellent seats. The inside is beautiful old opera house built probably over a hundred years ago. Well worth the experience.

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.
