I wanted to see a classical ballet and this seemed the right place. They have An English website but if you click further to book it's all in cyrillic so i couldn't book in advance. So I went the day of the performance, the box office opens 1 hour before. It was super crowded and when it was my turn... More

While visiting friends in Ukraine, I was treated to an evening at the opera. We watched The Barber of Seville. Interestingly enough it was performed in Italian and Ukrainian subtitles were provided. The theater is a sight to behold starting with the first step inside. The stairway is an ideal spot for a photo op! What a treat to experience... More

After being closed for several years amid botched reconstruction efforts, the theatre reopened to great fanfare in 2007. You can take a Russian-language tour of the theatre,... More

Odessa National Academic Opera and Ballet Theater is not only a beautiful building, but it has great spectacles to offer for excellent price! While in Odessa I absolutely wanted to go for an opera, I chose an Ukrainian one (Zaporozhets za Dunayem) and I very much enjoyed this experience. Buy your tickets in advance - there was quite a big... More
