The National State Opera and Ballet Theater, named after the popular Kazakh poet and philosopher Abai/Abay Ibrahim Kunanbeyli.
Shows in Russian and Kazakh are frequently hosted at this majestic theater, and intellectuals gather around after every performance for discussing the strong and weak points of the show. The standard of the shows is none less than any international performance – if you get an opportunity to attend an opera or ballet here, do not miss it!
