Chernivtsi Music Drama Theater
Teatralnaya Square, 1
Despite the youth of the creative team of the Chernivtsi Theater, founded in 1940, it was always distinguished with thorough approach to the theatrical performances and professionalism, which could be envied by other theaters.
The building of the theater was raised in 1905 and is very different from other constructions of that time. "This is a dream of velvet and gold" as it was characterized by one of the critics. The facade of the building is decorated in the style of Viennese baroque with wide usage of art nouveau details. The main entrance is decorated with statues and bas-reliefs that illustrate stories from Greek mythology. The interior of the theater is not inferior in any detail to the luxurious exterior of the building.
Over its short history the theater staged over 500 performances on the motifs of works by domestic and foreign authors. Among the most remarkable stagings that are still sold out for every performance "The House of Bernarda Alba" by F. Lorca, "West Side Story" by A. Laurents, "The Stolen Happiness" by I. Franko and many others are worth mentioning.
