Wonderful artists, good new performances each year there are the premiere performances. Beautiful interiors and theater hall, cheap tickets, the opportunity to buy an electronic ticket online. Be sure to go to my favorite theater!

I've seen some great ballet performances here. Swan Lake (twice), Romeo and Juliet, Les Sylphides, Sheharezade and Schredkin's Carmen. Beautiful building, amazing prices. Not to be missed if you are lucky enough to visit Ekaterinburg.

One of the cheapest - and best ways to spend youe evening in Yekaterinburg. Russian operas are quite good. Italian operas depend on the cast. For example Madame Butterfly is awful, because all the singers are old and not enthusiastic about their work. But most Italian operas are great... such as Tosca or Figaro's Wedding - they feature young singers,... More

We saw an interesting production of Otello here, generally well sung by Russian singers with an outstanding Desdemona. Seats in the front row of the circle cost a fraction of the price that one would pay in London or Moscow - so excellent value for money. Definitely worth grabbing a performance if you can.

I've been to this opera theatre for a few times, and I should say that it is much greater than some Moscow theatres. The first thing I liked was the price. The first row of stalls costs 750 roubles or 1100 if it is the first night performance (in Moscow you would pay this money to seat quite far from... More

Not worth visiting though the prices are extremely low. However if you want a true glimps at what has remained of the communist days this is a good choice. Mandatory and very unfriendly coat check, drinks served at room temperature, bottles served unopened, a ballet performance which was almost laughable.

It was closed mid day when I was there. I'm not sure it's open for general viewing, so if you want to see the interior, better find out whether you can get in before going. Here's a picture of the exterior.

Glamorous old opera house from tsarist times. It was very easy to book the tickets online in advance (pre-paid by credit card), incredibly cheap for Western European opera standards. Pick up of tickets on the day of the performance without any problems. Great seats, good drinks and snacks selection. Translation screens only in Russian, unfortunately (I saw Nozze di Figaro,...
