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.

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
