We were lucky to discover and thoroughly enjoyed the ballet which was a superb performance. To our surprise the entrance tickets were also priced very low for the best class. Thanks.

Wonderful experience watching ballet Don Quixote. Beautiful building inside and outside! Well performed ballet! The ticket is only 20 somoni per person. Definitely recommend this and will definitely come back next time I am in Dushanbe! Lovely!

Lighting were awesome and so was the interiors and fine arts on the wall. Sitting arrangement was fine. Located in mid-town. Sometime they activate water fountain that is located in the face of the theater, with lights and music...its really cool

In spite of a somewhat old/fashined style this is a very nice local place that gives you a good insight of what the country's cultural scence is like. If you have some time in Dushanbe you should definitely go.

A nice place to hang out especially during the evenings and one can have a glass of Beer alongwith fresh cooked Chicken fried besides your table. The fragrance is aromatic to the taste buds.

There are some delightful hints of Persia in this gorgeous building - the floor tiles, wooden carved theatre entry doors and stunning ceiling. It opens at 11am in winter.
