Wonderfull Theater - very very beautifull decorated. Was renewed 3 years ago, built in 1954. Looks like Chelyabinsk people love conserts - I have never seen so many people for a consert - all enjoying their time and very very friendly, I were there with some of our best friends in Chelyabinsk.

What a great venue. I saw many performances here, both opera and ballet and all were fantastic. For the price of a movie ticket here in the U.S., I saw world class performers in a beautiful theater.

Adam in the Chelyabinsk Glinka Theatre and were enchanted with the theatre location in the city centre, the talented dancers and the laid-back audience whose attitude amused us as much as the interiors of the building.

Our hosts took us here and even though we didn't understand a word of Russian, it was a great evening. It wasn't that hard to follow the plot and the performance was magical. It doesn't match up to the Bolshoi, but for a Siberian city, they do a great job.
