The theater is spectacular both inside and out. The details are done in traditional Kazakh design employing different Kazakh symbols.
Each week they run a different opera, and once a work is rehearsed and performed it can return in that form up to three times a year for several years. While the show seemed stiff and some of the singers seemed to have a difficult time projecting over the orchestra, the singers who played Rigoletto and Gilda, were quite amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
