A very interesting legend is connected with the magnificent curtain "Parnassus", which has served the theater for more than a hundred years. The builders of the Opera wanted the curtain in the theater to be as pompous and solemn as the building itself. They traveled around the world and sought out the most beautiful curtains. The best were recognized curtains of theaters of Milan and Krakow, the author of which was the famous Ukrainian artist Henryk Semiradsky - a Pole who was born in Ukraine, in Pechenegs. He was ordered to the theatrical curtain. When he made the curtain, money was not enough for him, and a generous kind artist presented his magnificent work to the Lviv Opera.
