I'm not even remotely an expert on opera nor ballet, but this is worth a visit - from the outside it makes for beautiful photographs, showing Lviv's Austro-Hungarian heritage. Inside, the theatre is beautiful and ornate. I went to see a Ukrainian opera, When The...More

The new production of the Opera was a great disappointment. Ridiculous sets like construction scaffolding, raggedy cutoffs, grimy-looking jeans, hoodlum types behaving like brutal gangsters. This was the background for the heavenly music of Mozart. The sonorous sounds of the clavicord emphasized the ridiculous incongruity...More

Lovely ornate interior with very steep seating but small enough to get a great view even from “the gods”.

We would have liked to tour this theater, but it was closed at midday. Nearby was a street fair with local food.

Beautiful venue with remarkable opaline glass chandelier and frolicking muses on the dome. We were able to book tickets on the Opera website several months beforehand, with no problems whatsoever. Tickets were very inexpensive, and the production we saw was very well done- beautiful singing,...More

We went to the box office the day before and got tickets but there wasn’t much choice. Sorry, don’t know how to book ahead. Tickets £4.00- 10.00 each. Great value. Hope you get sorted. Regards

Go in to the opera and look at what is on and you can book tickets at the desk when you go through the doors on the right hand side, you can also pay to take a tour of the opera house
