Buy a simple tourist viewing ticket & experience this place without huge crowds or actually attending an opera or ballet. We would have, but nothing was scheduled. If you’re lucky, a rehearsal might be happening & it’s a great second best

The inside of the opera is nice with baroque style decoration on the main stair and a little gallery of mirrors on the first floor. It is worth the 40uah entry ticket and no more than 20mn time.

Beautiful sounds emanate from this wonderfully old building. The architecture is lovely but the seats aren’t the most comfortable.
