Buryat State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater

Warm season
Cold season

The only theater in the world with a yurta on its roof. Yep, that’s possible in Buryatia! The building is truly monumental and majestic. There are many interesting things inside, for example, the ceiling of the auditorium is decorated with a composition called «The Triumph of Socialistic System» and a giant cone-like multilayered chandelier. Today the theater is only slightly similar to the one it all began with in 1939, the Buryat-Mongolian Theater of Music and Drama. For the past 80 years the theater’s collective has been recognized as one of the best theatrical groups in Russia. They regularly take part in international and Russian festivals, has a lot of professional awards and colorful performances in its programme, tours a lot. Oh, and by the way, you can also take part in a backstage excursion.
