The new building of the Opera House points out against small houses constructed in the 19th – early 20th centuries in Sumskaya street. The construction which you see nowadays was erected not many years ago, in 1991.It was designed by Kiev architects in the Post modernist style and it took almost 20 years to build it from 1970 till 1991It houses different administrative facilities, Kinopalac cinema, two auditoriums for 1500 and 4000 seats

Magnificent light and music fountains just in front of the thetre are mutually complimentary creating mysterious atmosphere and inviting you with warm hospitality

It was an amazing time 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.

I visited the ballet- and operahouse both to watch a ballet and an opera. The ballet was a childrens ballet. I was amazed by how the children danced on their stockinged feet and performed as well as dancers with balletshoes. The opera was Don Giovanni and the drama was well conveyed. Common to both performances was good costumes, which I thought was above level, - you might also say meant for a bigger place, which I am not sure, I think anyway, as Kharkov after all is the second biggest city in Ukraine.
There is possibility for buying water and candy in the theatre.
