Golden Lion International Theatre Festival, 1—7 October, theatres across the city

The annual Golden Lion festival is not just a carnival but a European theatrical tradition in its own right. It is also one of the most prestigious forums which modern Ukraine has established in international cultural circles. It was founded back in 1989 and has since been transforming the streets of Lviv into a theatre every October, providing vivid impressions and creating a true carnival atmosphere. Every evening the square before Lviv Opera House turns into a stage for free-of-charge performances and street carnivals: stilt parades, mime and clown shows, fireworks or perhaps a spectacular fire show. Meanwhile, brilliant performances are staged in Lviv’s glittering array of theatres and concert halls, with performers from across Europe participating. This year troupes from Ukraine, Poland, Austria, Russia, Belarus will be performing at Golden Lion.

Міжнародний театральний фестиваль Золотий Лев, 1—7 жовтня в театрах міста

Щорічний фестиваль Золотий Лев перетворився з вуличного карнавалу в справжню європейську театральну традицію, і вже став одним з найпрестижніших форумів у міжнародних театральних колах. Заснований у 1989 році фестиваль кожного жовтня перетворює вулиці міста в театральну сцену без лаштунків, на якій виступають актори різних жанрів та мистецьких напрямків. Кожного вечора площа перед оперним театром стає сценою, на якій кожен може побачити виставу без квитків. Під відкритим небом виступають актори на ходулях, міми та клоуни, майстри вогняних шоу. А тим часом у театрах та концертних залах міста виступатимуть театральні трупи з України, Польщі Австрії, Росії, Білорусі.
