The centerpiece of odessa. Opera and ballet with some organ music. I would love to see the london philharmonic here...or a broadway musical!

Really nice. The traffic inside Odessa is crazy... But the opera house is really nice and the buildings surrounding it are also magnificent!

The architectural design is stunning and the inside is gorgeous. The theater is close to Potemkin Stairs, museums, and monuments; in addition, a 20 minute walk to Cathedral Square. In 1873, the building was gutted by a fire... There is a story that when the...More

The Odessa opera house is by far the most extraordinarily beautiful piece of architecture in the area. We took a number of beautiful photos, particularly of the outside. Concert tickets are inexpensive, and highly recommended for classical music lovers. The interior of the concert hall...More

This is a world class opera house with excellent acoustics. We watched an opera. Unfortunately, some people don't know how to behave. It is one thing to take selfies in the gallery, it is quite another to be photographing the performance while it is taking...More

Hi, Some theaters have a policy about this - if you're too late, no admission until the interval. But in Odessa I've seen people arriving when the performance was already under way. Just be nice to the staff and say you had... More
