It is one of the best buildings in Astana. Prices for tickets are really good, but you should buy them in advance, as 2-3 weeks prior the date all tickets usually are sold out. Must visit place for everyone.

This is an extraordinary opera house - marbled, inlaid, hand-painted, with two world-class performance spaces. An amazing resident company, and a highly trained front-of-house staff make going to a show an experience not to miss.

Performed in June 2017. It is a dreamland for every artist to perform. Beautiful aesthetics, excellent acoustics and extremely well equipped. Royal looking seating and amazing facilities for the technical support.

I visited the Opera three- four times and was satisfied with the stage view and quality of sound from the lower floor. If you buy a gallary ticket, then you need to be careful about the seat you choose. From top, some seats do not...More

Fantastic opera house. The greatest in Eurasia. Such a beautiful architectonic building. A big temple of classical music!

Every superlative you can think of describes this relatively-new opera house: one of the world's largest; one of the biggest chandeliers; some of the best acoustics; and fortunately some of the most comfortable seating! Plácido Domingo holds an annual opera competition to promote talented young...More
