The National Opera and Ballet Theatre of Belarus is in downtown Minsk. It's a round, white, wonderful building inside a park. If offers, at convenient prices, a very interesting program of music concerts, operas, ballets. Strongly recommended. Apparently it's also possible to visit it (guided tour), but the lady at the ticket office could not speak English very well and so we were not in a position to organize it, too bad.

Have been to this place a few times now and they keep it in pristine condition.
They have recently re done the external gardens and paint.
The place is just a master piece of architecture inside and out.
It is welcoming and one of the best examples of classical soviet architecture.
A must for Architecture students and lovers.
Also functions well and is comfortable.
Belarusians love theater more than the cinema and shows in their approach to this theater.
Must dress up a bit to go hear. Not western trendy style.

The stucture is very nice and the park around it add also more charm to the structure. In the park there are a lot of nice sculptures.
I saw also an opera ans so had the possibility to see the interior which is very well decorated.

We booked to see Esmeralda last minute upon arrival in Minsk. Only the cheap seats were available which were very cheap indeed. $4 each. The view was somewhat to be desired as we could only see half of the stage but for the price we paid we couldn’t complain. It was more about the whole experience. Luckily we had back row at the side and could stand up for a better view. Not ideal but again for the price we paid we could complaint. Very nice intervals with a bar serving drinks. A couple of the staff spoke English. Overall a very nice experience and would return and booking earlier and paying more for better seats.

Going to this theatre was a pretty amazing experience! You will not find Belarusian wearing sweater and jeans. Wear your suit and respect the tradition. The theatre is really well decorated with marble floors and gold-finished stucco. The price is really cheap for Europeans and is very easy to find very good seats. We assisted to a ballet about the history of Belarus. Highly recommended!!!
