I have watched and an Italian Opera in here. Inside was really good and has good atmosphere. When I will come again to Kharkiv, I will most probably visit this place again to watch some opera or concert.

The building is quite unique in the architecture, great example of constructivism style. And inside if you will decide not to go straight to the concert hall you can get lost, it's almost a labyrinth) And the ballet or opera itself are very good. Definitely can recommend to visit if you have time. Nothing special, but there are just few... More

From the outside, it looks kind of doll, but the inside is majestic, beautiful architecture and decor. Went to see a Ballet and an Opera, great sound and seating.

This building would have been great for a modern art or technological museum. Whoever had the idea of this design for an opera house has a screw loose. The interior was very nice, but the exterior is hideous...for an opera house. I attended a Japanese opera, sung in Italian, in a Ukrainian opera house. :) The opera was great, well... More

I saw The Barber of Seville here. It was in Russian but I thoroughly enjoyed the entire show. It was a bit cool in the theatre but we kept our coats on and we were fine. It was more than -20 degrees outside, so we expected it to be cool. The singers were excellent.

The Opera, Barber of Seville, was in Russian rather than Italian but it was really good. Obviously the story is well known so it was easy to follow and the cast were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

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!

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,... More

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.
