HNATOB (better known as HATOB), as a theatrical troupe arose in 1925. When in the 60s, the building occupied by the HNATOB was considered obsolete, they decided to build a new one.
The construction began in 70 years. On the site of the rotunda and the dairy technical school, a long 2 decades erected a structure, which is now considered the most famous long-term construction of Kharkov. There were several architects. One of them is Sergey Mirgorodsky, who was then the chief architect of Kharkiv.
 
They say that initially a theater project in the style of Soviet modernism was developed for Kiev, but it was not accepted in the capital and sent to Kharkov. Immediately there was a project with a hall for 4000 seats, which could be used for party events, but then, due to a lack of funds, they began to scale down and as a result came to the project, what we have now: a large hall with 1507 seats and up to 500 seats - Small Hall. The latter is no longer owned by the theater, although concerts are also organized there, but other teams are already there. Theater workers still hope that they will be returned to that hall soon. After all, not all performances are conveniently staged on a large stage, there are chamber operas for 1 participant that are not at all suitable for such rooms.

The theater was planned to open in 1975, to the thirtieth anniversary of Victory in the Great Patriotic War, but due to lack of funds and constant pauses in construction, only on October 20, 1991 the first gala concert on the big stage took place. According to the workers and the first visitors, the theater created a strange impression - the old classical theater, albeit without gilding, but with stucco molding, velvet halls. It all looked a little sad.
 
However, this is a unique building. Indeed, unlike many Soviet theaters on the territory of Ukraine, everything in one complex is located here: workshops, warehouses, etc. The roof area of ​​KhATOB is 1 hectare, and the total area of ​​premises on all floors is almost 7 hectares! For such dimensions, the building is sometimes called the "aircraft carrier". Here are concerts of chamber music (opera arias, romances, etc.).
The performances are not characterized by intricate scenery, costumes. Workers say their viewer does not understand this. The repertoire consists of about 60 operas and ballets in Ukrainian, Russian and Italian. HATOB gave the world such stars of the scene as Zoya Gaidai, Ivan Gmyrya, Boris Patorzhinsky etc., thanks to which he received the title "City of Masters". In 2007, the square in front of the theater was restored by fountains and called this place "Fountain Square".
 
How to get there:
- from the metro station Historical Museum (Constitution Square) go up the street. Sumy 600 m, about 6 minutes.
