“Vanguard Theater with drama inside”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

Les Kurbas theater has a really talented stuff! The actors playing are highly educated people. Les Kurbas himself was such person and he was simply executed by the soviet government because of being a ‘threat’ to the rule. The theater has a list of philosophic, touching and very up-to-date plays… when you are there, you simply sit with your mouth open during the whole performance…and as a ‘thank you’ the current government has some ‘views’ on the building of the theater, trying to take it away…

“The most deep-hearted theatre in Lviv!"”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

I am a Lviv citizen, trying to visit theatres at least once a month :)
Les Kurbas Theatre is an amazing group of people, who think beyond the borders, who give a new life to each performance they do!
If you are a tourist who doesn't speak Ukrainian I would advise you to attend their "Lisova Pisnia" ("Forest Song") performance, which is full of folk songs and tells a story of love between a human guy and forest spirit - "Mavka". Ekh...emotions are overwhelming!
Hope you enjoy it as well as I do!
