Les Kurbas Theatre is one of the best experimental theatres in Europe
The original performances and the magnificent atmosphere are known far beyond Lviv. There you can get lots of emotions and inspiration.
The building, where the theatre is located, was built in the early 20th century as the Casino de Paris Variety Theatre and the restaurant of the famous Franciszek Moszkowicz according to the design of architects Zygmunt Fedorski and Stanislaw Macudziński.
From 1920 to 1944, there was a popular Bagatela Cabaret with a dance hall. Unfortunately, the rich decor of the building was not preserved, because during the Soviet time various institutions were located there.
The facade of the building is designed in pseudo-Gothic style and decorated with mascarons and sculptures. After the last restoration work, the old advertising inscriptions on the façade were preserved and nowadays they stand as a testament to the past.
