We visited in December of 2018 and saw a performance of the Nutcracker. We were able to get tickets about 30 minutes before the performance by waiting at the ticket window just inside the theatre entrance. Tickets were 250 rubles (about $3.75 USD) each, which...More

We only saw this from the outside, which is great architecture and also includes the musical fountains, which look great at night. You cannot miss this on your walking tour of Ulan Ude, just across the road from Lenin’s head

it's interesting in Ulan-Ude to see a mix of cultures with Asian influence and Western, you can tell from their performance some are heavily influenced by Mongolians and some are influenced by other past countries of Russia. Anyway beautiful roof.

One of the great building of the Ulan Ude is definitely this Buryat State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater. We really wanted to spend some time but missed the performances. Next time will visit and see inside.

Interesting performance of Mafame Buttrerfly in mixture of Italian and Russian by high standard singers.. Mainly middle aged female audience with sprinkling of younger students in classical handsome theatre with great example of Soviet mythical ceiling painting with presence of Lenin and menacing/ protective warplanes.

We watched a show in this theater, but what was striking is that the theater has maintained the architectural and decorative style of the Soviet period. While some are fighting against the symbols of the epoch gone, here the reconstructors and renovators preserved everything the...More
