Tbilisi Opera House

Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theatre

Inaugurated in April 1851, the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theatre is the main venue for opera in Georgia. Located near the Mtkvari river, this Moorish Revival style opera house (an architectural style that was inspired by oriental design) has been the heart of culture in Tbilisi for over hundred years. The opera house suffered some problems during a problematic period in the 1990's where the opera house and other cultural institutions didn't receive governmental funds. Today though, the theater is back to its former glory and is a must visit if you are the kind of visitor who is looking for a cultural experience.
