Our congratulations on the International Music Day and Day of grand opening of the Theatre!

Today, on October 1, the world is celebrating the 46th anniversary of the International MusicDay, which was founded on the initiative of the International Music Council at UNESCO. The decision to celebrate it was made at the 15th General Assembly of the International Music Council in Lausanne in 1973. The aim of this holiday is the dissemination of musical art in all sectors of society, as well as the implementation of UNESCO's ideals of peace and friendship among nations, development of cultures, exchange of experience and mutual respect for aesthetic values.

More than that, 132 years ago - also on October 1 - it was a grand opening of a new building of Odessa Opera House, erected on the site of the previous City Theater, which was destroyed with the fire. “The main facade of the theatre is facing the Richelieu Street. The style of construction is the Italian Renaissance. In general, the facade gives the impression of a grandiose building, although not solid enough; decorative parts, stucco work and statues give particular grace to certain parts”, - wrote the local newspaper “Pcholka” (“Bee”) after the opening.
