The theater begins ... With a history. In our theater, a symphony of Shostakovich was first performed. Now the theater is a special place. The interior resembles the famous La Scala. Professional and interesting performances, great opera and ballet troupe and symphony orchestra. Truly Samara Opera House, one of the visiting cards of the city.

Over the past 15 years I have attended ballets and operas in the Samara Opera and Ballet Theatre many times. Now that the theatre has been remodeled, it's a spectacular place to enjoy a top quality performance. The prices are reasonable. It's not Moscow or St. Petersburg - but nevertheless, you will not be sorry you spent an evening in... More

If you are in Samara, you should find a chance to visit Opera and Ballet Theatre. Moreover it is situated in the center of the city and you could have nice walk around the historical center before or after the ballet. The building was constructed in last century and was typical for Soviet architecture with its sculptures on front and... More
