National opera house of Ukraine

National opera house of Ukraine

[September, 2011] One of our purposes of this trip to Kiev was to see a ballet performance in the National Opera House.

Kiev ballet company used to be one of the top 3 companies in Soviet Union.

I might have expected too much, but to be honest I found them not so good.

When Ukraine became independent, people’s mind may have got away from Russia deliberately and stopped putting a lot of energy or money on ballet.

The programme was out-of -season ‘The Nutcracker’ .

Our seat were one of the bests and I enjoyed in general anyway.
