Dushanbe Opera and Ballet Theatre, Dushanbe (must see)

Ayni Opera and Ballet Theater was built in 1946 and is a classic example of Stalinist architecture. It hosts many performances and plays. The first Tajik ballet was performed here and the culture then started to grow and develop. Later, a new wave of Tajik artists became part the Theater and made it very popular. They participated in Russian and Western classic operas and visited Russia. Here you can attend beautiful performances with highly traditional Tajik features if you happen to watch a performance of foreign artists from any corner of the world.
