National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet of Mongolia

The National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet of Mongolia (colloquially called Ulaanbaatar Opera House) opened on 15 May 1963 and made its opening ceremony on 18 May 1963 with Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin.

The repertoire includes classical and national ballet (Swan Lake, The Nutcracker) and opera (Madama Butterfly, La bohème).

The beginnings of a contemporary professional theatre in Mongolia were laid down with the establishment of a National Central Theatre in 1931,[1] which was an extension of the Folk Stadium which was inaugurated in 1927.
