Mongolian State Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet

Scratched off my bucket-list: Mongolian ballet. We saw Giselle, the ballet about a peasant girl who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another.

The photo is the central chandelier inside with Mongolian decorative motif.

The green and blue pattern on the outside is called хамар угалз ("khamar ugalz") which means nose pattern. Each design represents a different animal's nostrils.
