A group of us went to the amazing Opera and Ballet theatre. We saw the ballet - Les Sulphides that was excellent. The theatre is an impressive building with a French style auditorium. Well worth a visit for the architecture alone.

The quality of the singers is a little variable but the location is incredible. Be sure to have a glass of local champagne in the interval

During the trip to Odessa I had a great opportunity to spend one evening in Opera House. Building itself looks amazing, a lot of details, well-kept in a neobaroque style. I've seen performance named "Wij", it looked nice with all the costumes and scenes even...More
