It was beautiful building, didn't have chance to see Opera or Ballet in it.

One of the great building of the Ulan Ude is definitely this Buryat State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater. We really wanted to spend some time but missed the performances... read more

One of the great building of the Ulan Ude is definitely this Buryat State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater. We really wanted to spend some time but missed the performances. Next time will visit and see inside.

Went to the Opera over there. Totally worth it, it's just classy. The beautiful ceilings, the great performances and the culture you receive here is invaluable. Also the tickets are really cheap and there is always some show around, so don't miss your chance to really enjoy this piece of history and culture

Interesting performance of Mafame Buttrerfly in mixture of Italian and Russian by high standard singers.. Mainly middle aged female audience with sprinkling of younger students in classical handsome theatre with great example of Soviet mythical ceiling painting with presence of Lenin and menacing/ protective warplanes.

We watched a show in this theater, but what was striking is that the theater has maintained the architectural and decorative style of the Soviet period. While some are fighting against the symbols of the epoch gone, here the reconstructors and renovators preserved everything the way it was in the 60-s when the theater was built. Highly recommend to visit... More
