Very beautiful and classical building inside and outside. Try to attend to a performance during your stay in Kazan. Well worth while, and tickets are surprisingly cheap - usually everything in Russia is heavily overpriced and way ahead of the service. Here it is the other way round - great !

It's the great place to see ballet or to listen to Opera. Decoration inside is greatfull-marmor, granite, gilt and crystal chandeliers. String ensemble playing in the lobby during intermission. There are a few coffee shops and cafes. Price for show is excellent low. Opera house is situated on Freedom Squaire, it's about 10 minutes by feet from Kremlin.
