Yekaterinburg is not really a new city - it has a lot of metal and glass in its new a architectural history, but this one is an old jewel to see and admire. Even if late at night, go at least for a walk towards, as it is a landmark to see. Pity I was not able to see it... More

I was there for three performances. The theater is medium sized with great performances for really cheap tickets - the most expensive tickets costs around 16 EUR.

We showed up an hour before Romeo and Juliet began and were able to buy decent seats. Great show enjoyed by all in a beautiful theatre. Highly recommend seeing a show.

A beautiful opera house that is white and gold, lavish yet intimate and a wonderful ballet company. I saw their premiere of a new Romeo and Juliet. Centrally located and friendly staff.

A trip to Yekaterinburg would not be complete without a visit to the Opera and Ballet theatre. Sort of like Yekaterinburg's equivalent of the Royal Opera House in London for a tenth of the price! Many and varied quality productions throughout the season. Inside you will find comfortable seating, lots of ornate gold paint, decorative lighting and splendid chandeliers.

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
