It is an architectural masterpiece, a must visit when in Odessa. The building is very beautiful. The acoustics is great, listening to music and singing is a real delight here. It is the second best opera house in the world.

It was one of the best places to see in Odessa. 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. We watched Eugene Onegin Opera from Tchaikovsky with great pleasure.

I have visited it so many times. It is a beautiful place. The architecture of the building is magnificent. But it also has "a black fly in your Chardonnay" - a very poor repertoire.So sad
