I have visited the opera many times on my visits to Lviv. It is a beautiful building with many fine features. The seating is good and the boxes are even better. For someone from England like me, the ticket prices are very cheap - £10 Sterling for a seat in a box with an excellent view of the stage. I... More

This place is beautiful, lots of history. Built over a river, the construction for the time was pretty amazing. The acoustics of course are great. We saw an opera, best seats in the house were $6 (USD) even our teenage boys were absorbed in the show, and that's with it being performed in Ukrainian, we don't speak a word. So... More

Much like the Vienna Opera which was somehow the model, this Institution is a marvel of Historicist architecture in an elegant setting. While I di not manage to attend a performance, the authentic elegance of this building alone is worth a visit.

Beautiful little operahouse. Wonderfully renovated. Go for a sightseeing tour of the building or even better; buy a ticket to an opera or ballet show. The artistic level is high and the tickets are so affordable and great value for money. I had tickets on 1st balcony, 1st row. Cant be better!

A group of friends and I visited the Lviv opera to take in its ornate architecture on a recent trip to the city. We were not disappointed! The opera is at the north end of the pretty promenade along Prospekt Svobody and its exterior is magnificent. The fountain and square outside provide a pleasant place to take in the exterior...

Was in Lviv for two days and went to a performance of Delibes' ballet "Coppélia" on the night I was free. An excellent performance with a seat in the second row of the stalls for under €10.Two great lead dancers and a beautiful set. There seems to be a performance of an opera or a ballet almost every evening and... More

I attended the opera Natalka Poltavka. Really beautiful inside. The Opera was in Ukrainian and I didn't understand everything but I had a good time.
