We are sad to announce that Valentyn Maksymenko passed away yesterday

 We are sad to announce that Valentyn Maksymenko passed away yesterday - a unique person, theater critic, local historian, critic, collector, passionate admirer and popularizer of music and theater.

 
Mathematician in the main specialty, academician, professor of Odessa State Polytechnic University Valentin Semenovich was friends and communicated with many artists of opera, operetta and drama. His collection included thousands of records, mostly opera and vocal music, hundreds of photographs.
 
He lived by art - lectured, directed the Theater Society, wrote articles, hosted TV shows, but the main task of his life was to determine the history of the Odessa Opera House. Valentyn Maksymenko's book on the history of the Odessa Opera is a unique work that goes far beyond traditional local lore.
 
His contribution to the study of the history of art, music, and our theater is invaluable.
 
We sincerely sympathize with the relatives and friends of Valentyn Semenovych.
