The National Academic Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theatre of the Republic of Belarus has started a new life after the renovation that finished in 2009.

Now there is a building of a pastel shade, that goes so well with the color scale of the city, a cozy park and full of fountains. Its insides have changed as well: Soviet symbols were substituted by luxurious interior design. The theatre’s repertoire allows to experience hundreds of various stories in the form of ballet or opera. There are some classics: "Nabucco", "Carmen", "Eugene Onegin", "Aida", "Carmina Burana", "Swan Lake", as well as works of Belarussian authors — "Old legend", "Vitovt", "King Stakh's Wild Hunt". Younger audience has not been overlooked as well: they have "Winnie-the-Pooh and everyone", "Snow White and seven dwarves", etc.

Despite the fact that ballet and opera are not mean for masses, the theatre enjoys incredible popularity — to buy a ticket here one should book them well in advance.

If you just walk there, you can spend some time in the surrounding park area and also find Monument to Ballet Dancers near the stage door.

Belarusian ballets are of higher class than operas. The building is of unusual for opera&ballet houses style, but I find the style very beautiful. Nice place, worth visiting.

A place that makes your heart flutter with delight! A feast for the eyes and balm for the soul... Very pleased with the choice of repertoire. Operas, ballets and themed music nights concerts are worth a visit. You will not regret! :-)

Looked 12.02.2016 the ballet "ANYUTA to music by Valery Gavrilin NABT of Opera and ballet of the Republic of Belarus. Ballet in 2 acts and lasts 2 hours. Gorgeous setting! Beautiful music accompanied by the same brilliant choreography and directed by the national actor of the USSR Vladimir Vasiliev.
Despite the sad story, the staging leaves a bright impression and enjoyment of the spectacle. I strongly recommend to watch with the whole family, because even those who don't like ballet will enjoy the music, enthusiasm and skill of the performers - dance and soloists, and corps de ballet! Inventive decorations are bright and colorful transport viewers from the miserable flats of the lush Christmas ball, skate Park, or the city Boulevard. Resourceful and resolved as the stage of dreams!
the Main role was played by the famous Belarusian dancer Irina Eromkina. Special thanks to the audience deserved Japanese Takatoshi of Machiya - so plastic he portrayed the husband of Anna, an old and greedy officials by modest Alekseevich. It was just acting good luck! And imagine how should have been dancing dreams - Aniuta and modest to get the audience to believe that they were dreams. Not just smiled, looking at the dance "grasshoppers" - Department officials in the green mundirchiki!
and here is the fly in the ointment - and really, why the program was only available to the load with a monthly journal published by the theatre?? But if this month has already been such a purchase under the former going to the theatre?? The cost of such "cultural" couples magazine+program was equal to the cost of another ticket!! And what kind of preview performances, when neighbors need to ask the names of the performers?? Need this administration to fix and not to render the imposition of service!
And yet- hurry up to see this show!

Посмотрели 12.02.2016 балет "АНЮТА" на музыку Валерия Гаврилина в НАБТ оперы и балета Республики Беларусь. Балет в 2-х действиях, длится 2 часа. Великолепная постановка! Прекрасная музыка сопровождает такую же блестящую хореографию и постановку народного артиста СССР Владимира Васильева.
Несмотря на печальный сюжет, постановка оставляет светлые впечатления и наслаждение от увиденного спектакля. Горячо рекомендую посмотреть всей семьей, поскольку даже те, кто не любит балет, получат удовольствие от музыки, энтузиазма и мастерства исполнителей- так танцуют и солисты, и кордебалет! Изобретательные декорации ярко и красочно переносят зрителей из убогой квартирки на пышный Рождественский бал, на каток или городской бульвар. А как находчиво решены сцены снов!
Главную роль исполняла известная белорусская балерина Ирина Еромкина. Особую благодарность зрителей заслужил японец Такатоши Мачияма - так пластично он изобразил мужа Анюты - пожилого и жадного чиновника Модеста Алексеевича. Это была просто актерская удача! А представьте себе, как надо было станцевать сны- Анюты и Модеста, чтобы зрители поверили в то,что это сны. Не раз улыбнулись, глядя на танцы "кузнечиков" - чиновников департамента в зеленых мундирчиках!
А вот и ложка дегтя- и вправду, почему программу можно было купить только в нагрузку с ежемесячным журналом, издаваемым театром?? А если в этом месяце уже была такая покупка при прежнем посещении театра?? Стоимость такой "культурной" пары - журнала+программа равнялась стоимости иного билета!! А что за просмотр постановки, когда у соседей надо спрашивать фамилии исполнителей?? Это надо администрации исправить и не оказывать навязывание услуги!
И все-таки - спешите посмотреть этот спектакль!
