If you ever wanted to see an opera but found it to expensive then its very cheap in Kiev,starting from as little as €5.25. Other european cities play on the fact that opera is not an option for most people but in Kiev is completely the opposite. The opera is a beautiful Neo-Renaissance building and is said to sit on a site centuries old. The line up for this summer is very diverse, Tchaikovsky, Verdi, Bizet, Minkus and Ravel to name a few. Go and listen !!!!
