Located in the largest Siberian city of Novosibirsk, the theater decorates the capital of Siberia. Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre is the largest and one of the most technically advanced theaters in Russia. Its construction was completed in February 1944, and the first performance was held on May 12th, 1945. During these years, over 340 opera and ballet performances have been held here. Today, over 800 people work in the theater and about half of them are performers. Construction works lasted for about 10 years, from 1931 till 1941. Some say that is was built by Germans but it’s not true. During WWII, a lot of exhibits from museums located in the European part of the USSR were kept here, including the Hermitage, the State Tretyakov Gallery, and The Bolshoi Theater.
