If you type Theatre Baikal into YouTube, you’ll get an amazing video of this folk group. The Theatre carefully keeps and introduces original Buryat-Mongolian culture and make performances in a modern way. The Theatre draws inspiration from its nature: The Great Lake, sky-high peaks, vast valleys and rich taiga forests. The theatre’s productions often balance between the real world and an ephemeral one introducing mystical components to the show. Artists of the theatre are the people who chose to do more than just singing, dancing or playing instruments. Baikal chose its own way that demands intuition, intelligence, strength and unselfishness in the search of something that is almost forgotten and lost, the search of the true self through the sounds and songs that have been heard just in these lands, and nowhere else. Every year in the middle of summer, Theatre of Song and Dance «Baikal» hold the open-air festival Night of Youkhor in Ulan-Ude. Annually, from 4 to 6 thousand inhabitants and guests of Buryatia become direct participants of the Night of Youkhor. The Festival breaks the boundaries between people, making all of us a little better.
