If you are a lover of Ballet and Opera, or you have never experienced it before, you should make it a priority to visit this very old beautiful historical theatre. This is your chance to enjoy a fantastic performance at a fraction of the cost you would normally pay. Culture runs through the heart of Kiev (Kyiv), and the capital of Ukraine was widely regarded as the cultural centre of the old Russian empire. This iconic and magnificent building is home to Ukraine's most famous opera and ballet company. The building also stands as a monument to Taras Shevchenko (1814-1861); whose literary heritage is widely regarded to be the foundation of modern Ukrainian language and literature. It is situated at the crossroads of two central highways – Bogdan Khmelnitsky and Volodymyrska street. You might not be an avid opera or ballet fan but this is an opportunity you should not miss.
