The economic crisis in 1934 led to the fact that the theater was closed. It reopened only five years later. In 1940, performances began to be played exclusively in Ukrainian, eliminating Polish from use. During the war, when fierce battles were fought over the city with the fascist invaders, the Lviv opera theater was mined by the Germans, they planned to blow it up. But the Ural tank corps under the command of Lieutenant N.I. Antoninov managed to prevent the enemy from implementing a plan to destroy the building. In 1956 the theater received the name I. Franko. Since 1966 he has been awarded the academic title. In the late 70's. The theater was closed for reconstruction. It lasted long enough and was completed only in 1984.

The project competition for the building of the future theater was announced in 1895. As a result, the director of the highest art and industrial school of the city, Z. Gorgolevsky, won.

The architect of the Lviv Opera Theater himself supervised all the works and not only construction, but also earthworks. The erection of the building began in 1897.
