We were in Tashkent for 2 nights. At the opera house they had a different performance nearly every day! We bought tickets for Aida, 3 USD each! Interesting experience. It was a Friday night and the hall was full.

I prefer to consider this place as museum rather than theater per se. Irrelevant of what they show on stage, everybody must see the overall constructional beauty and indoor decorations of this theare - and this will be a touch of Uzbek art.

Set in a square with a fountain, the building is interesting and has been refurbished. There is an event board outside the front and to the left, which displays its forthcoming events. Sadly we did not have time to see a show.
