It was one of the best places to see in Odessa. The architecture of the luxurious audience hall follows the late French rococo style. The unique acoustics of the horseshoe-designed hall allows to deliver even a whisper-low tone of voice from the stage to any part of the hall. We watched Eugene Onegin Opera from Tchaikovsky with great pleasure.

Find an opera or ballet you enjoy and buy a ticket. You will enjoy the experience. The interior is a gloriously exuberant explosion of gilt and white, with a fine chandelier. The audience sometimes chatters through the overture and there are occasional additions to the performance (pause for a short ballet in the middle of Carmen...) but just go with... More

I have visited it so many times. It is a beautiful place. The architecture of the building is magnificent. But it also has "a black fly in your Chardonnay" - a very poor repertoire.So sad

I was in Odessa National Opera for show which called "Cindirella" I don't know why there was a lot of children (hahaha). It's how you don't speak Ukrainian and you think you have to be in that place and you don't have much time for visit... but I recommend this place, it's quite well, very clean and the stuff is...

We went to see Madam Butterfly at this great work of architecture and were not disappointed by the program or the surroundings. While the Opera was in the original language, they had subtitles in Ukrainian in a text box above the curtains. Acoustics were great. We did not buy our tickets early and as such were in the highest balcony... More
