The Bolshoi Opera and Ballet Theater of Belarus is an impressive white building, which looks like a spaceship that landed on the mountain Troickaja in Minsk. In this episode of the collaboration of 34travel & MTS we'll explore this spaceship, go behind the scenes, and try to find out what secrets the main theater of Belarus is keeping.
The Bolshoi Theater is the only opera theater in Belarus and the biggest stage of the country. Its building is an architectural monument of the national importance. Inside, there is the music playing, glittering gilding and rustling red velvet. And the building itself has its concrete roots dozens of meters under the ground – that’s where its mechanical heart beats.
