In a spacious 3-storey building, built of brick, is the national opera and ballet theater. The building itself dates back to the mid-nineteenth century. It was at this time that the theater, whose entrance composition was decorated with a magnificent portal with small semi-columns, opened its doors for the first time. Also here you can see pilasters and niches. Until now, there was a palace of culture of railway workers.
Kazakh theater-goers visiting this temple of culture very often, note the high level of professional skills of the actors, as well as the technical equipment of the theater. Every year theater directors hold master classes for beginners in the Melpomene, as well as attend similar events held by their foreign colleagues.
