OPERA AND THEATER SEASON IN Ukraine
Today there are more than 100 theaters recognized by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Among them are three which received highest status of National Theater – National Opera of Ukraine, National Academic Drama Theater of I.Franko and National Academic Theater of Russian Drama of Lesya Ukrainka. But beside these, there are still many others that have a high status, for example Kharkiv, Lviv, Odesa Theaters of Opera and Ballet.
The theaters perform different kind of genres. There are musical-drama theaters, dramatic theaters, theaters for children and youth, doll theaters, theaters of opera and ballet, operetta, etc.
In the latest years, the theatrical life of Ukraine has substantially diversified. Ukrainian theater is now developing at accelerated rates, successfully making up what it missed on what taboo was imposed before.
Ukraine is a musical nation. Specialists affirm that the phonetics of the Ukrainian language is ideal for singing and resemble the Italian language in terms of melodicity. For this reason, the emergence of Ukrainian national opera on the world scene in the 19th century seemed to be totally natural. The theater in Ukraine has successfully entered European humanitarian space.
The new theater season begins in the first days of September. For more information about the playbills etc:
