“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I went to see the classical show that runs again and again - "The bat", it was beautiful and funny. Don't have much to say except - big WOW!

“Authentic Pleasure at the Opera & Ballet Theatre in Kharkov”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

One of the delights for me when I’m in Kharkov is visiting the Opera and Ballet Theatre.
Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not out of professional curiosity believe me. I can neither sing, nor do a pirouette but what I do love is authentic theatre.

In Ukraine it has always been a traditional experience and regarded as normal. However, coming from the UK this is refreshing. At home Ballet or Opera is typically reserved for special occasions and wouldn’t be regarded as an everyday pleasure. In Kharkov it is. I love it.

So next time you are visiting Kharkov, take some time out to sample some culture. Take an evening out at the Opera and Ballet Theatre and let us know what you think.

“Very old”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

This is one of those places in Kharkiv that shows that this city was a very nice one...in the past.
The building is really nice and majestic, but it's needing some renovations asap, especially if you see the backside of it.

“Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Staff friendly and enjoyed the theatre, the location was central to city centre.
No problems with purchasing tickets.
Watching a Russian Opera and it was well worth the wait. The ticket price was so cheap and the show was so great. A must see if you are ever in Kharkiv.
