We went to the Ballet Thursday night. The orchestra and the dancers were incredible. The Opera house was old, but beautiful. I would highly recommend going anytime when your in Kiev.

Even, as a person, who is not a big fun of ballet, I highly enjoyed going to the National Opera House of Ukraine. The Nutcracker around Christmas time is a must. The performance was really professional, accompanied by timeless music. Must go.

Friends invited us to ballet "Vienna Waltz" by Strauss. Me and my husband admired the performance: music, decorations, atmosphere. If only I could I would have attended all performances.

Buying my ticket only 5 days beforehand I had a seat in the centre of the third balcony which was ideal. I came to see a Ukrainian Opera, Natalka Poltavka, but this time it was performed as an operetta. The music was lovely, the singing...More
