UKRAINE ~ Odessa Opera and Ballet Theater ~

View of a great architectural monument from Ukraine and one of the most beautiful theaters in the world...Many thanks Alex!!

The Odessa National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet is the oldest theatre in Odessa.

The first opera house was opened in 1810 and destroyed by fire in 1873. The modern building was constructed  in neo-baroque (Vienna Baroque) style and opened in 1887. The architecture of the luxurious audience hall follows the late French rococo style. The unique acoustics of the horseshoe-designed hall allows to deliver even a whisper-low tone of voice from the stage to any part of the hall. The most recent renovation of the theater was completed in 2007.
