Another of the soviet days glory. An amazing inside. If you are in the city don't miss it and see a play if possible a ballet I saw Giselle and as expected Russian ballets perform best. Plus there is a orchestra under the stage which makes it one of a kind.

We really wanted to visit Russian Academic Theater. We had chance to visit there on Sunday to see famous opera 'Aida'. It was great atmosphere and great singers, classic place to visit. This Theater opened the day World War II ended. You should visit there.

Wonderful place, luxurious setting, fantastic atmosphere of theatrical magic! Amazing opera and ballet performances. I was very happy to get a chance to watch "Spartacus" ballet last year, it was my dream come true :). Highly recommend this place to all the ballet and opera lovers.

We had a tour of the Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre and was thoroughly impressed with the lavish beauty of the building both inside and outside, but especially inside. Although we did not actually see any performance we were lucky enough to see some ballet dancers practising. Apparently the theatre stage is the only one in the world... More

A joyful night in a classical architecture! Many different experiences from this opera house! Put coats in the specific cloakroom and nice wine and tea during the interval! What a graceful night!

This Opera House is wonderful and has such charm. We saw a ballet and it was great. A full blown production with amazing scenery and at the same time small enough that I don't think there is a bad seat in the house.

This is the largest theatre building in Russia and one of the best ballet and opera companies in Asia. The interior was redone recently with no respect to the history of this building (pure kitsch) and questionable acoustics, but is still impressive. Most things in this theatre are 1.0 traditional and in this sense it is a bit like a... More

For all my friends I say: you have to go in Opera and Ballet Theatre. It has unique scale building with fantastic size scene. I prefer a singing, but a ballet is very good too! I recomend ballet "Bayadere" and opera "Carmen", Here are bright voices, bright dresses and great music!
