Gatob Reviews & Ratings
Kazakhstan has a beautiful Opera House, the building and the theater are gorgeous and the performance was spectacular. I highly recommend to any tourists to Kazakhstan. Almaty is a lovely City. Fair warning without a guide you will need to know some Russian or have a translator
Professionally managed theater. Must watch a drama, Opera or ballet here at least once. I watched Silfida ballet.
Excellent production at an amazingly humble price! This is an absolute must if you like a bit of opera, ballet or classical!
Beautiful place, great atmosphere.
Absolutely delightful ballet . Well organised and the atmosphere was magical.
