Operetta Theater is located in the former Trinity People's House. That establishment was a kind of "culture house" at the beginning of the twentieth century. Then it was at the outskirts of Kiev. In 1907 the troupe of the famous Ukrainian actor and director Nicholas Sadowsky rented the building. Sadowsky’s troupe was formed in Poltava in 1906. It was formed as music and drama theater with Maria Zankovetska starring. The season in Kiev was opened with "Natalka Poltavka’. Music for many plays was written by famous Ukrainian composer Mykola Lysenko.

Trinity People’s House is a famous site in Kiev. There Simon Petlyura wrote his first article as a theatrical reviewer. Alexander Koshits started his conductor's career there in 1912. There were first nights of Vladimir Vinnichenko’s plays. Les Kurbas got his first theatrical experience. He joined the company in 1916).

From 1918 to 1934 the State Ukrainian folk theater was located in that building. The State Ukrainian folk theater was led by Panas Saksahansky. Panas Saksahansky was Nicholas Sadowsky’s brother. And he was no less outstanding actor and director than Nicholas Sadowsky. In 1922 Maria Zankovetskaya’s troupe was located in the former Trinity People's House and the same year the theater company was officially named after Maria Zankovetskaya.

Operetta Theater Company was located in the building in 1934. Then it was called the Kiev State Theater of Musical Comedy. The word "operetta" was introduced to the official name in 1966.

Many well-known actors and actresses worked in the Operetta Theater Company. They were V. Novinsky, G. Loiko, N. Blashuk, L. Pressman, D. Ponomarenko, E. Mamikina, D. Shevtsov and many others. S. Kargalsky, B. Balaban and O. Barseghyan were the first directors of the theater. Well-known composer and conductor Alex Ryabov was the principal conductor of the theater for many years.  He was the author of the famous Ukrainian operettas "Wedding in Malinovka" (1938) and "Sorochinskaya Fair" (1943). "Natalka-Poltavka” by Lysenko (1943), "Matchmaking in Goncharivka” by K. Stetsenko (1953) and "Chasing Two Hares» by V. Rozhdestvensky (1953) were very popular on the stage of the Operetta Theater. Some World Classic Operettas such as "Die Fledermaus", "Morning in Venice", "Silva", "The Circus Princess", "Bayadera" are staged too.

The current director of the theater Bogdan Strutinsky has his own concept of the performances. His idea is that the Operetta Theater is designed to inspire the audience with optimism, to be a kind of "talisman" and "energizer" for the public.

There is no strict genre distribution. You can find elements of operetta, musicals and opera at the performance. And as far as the repertory of theater is concerned it is focused on the world classical art samples.
