Irkutsk, Russia

The to-do list for Irkutsk visitors must include seeing Lake Baikal and catching a performance based on a Rasputin or Vampilov piece. For the latter, go to the N.P.Okhlopkov Drama Theater. This stage was the launchpad for the works of Siberian authors, including “Deadline” by Valentin Rasputin and “The Eldest Son” by Alexander Vampilov. "This is the best performance of my work out of all the ones I've had a chance to see," said the author about "Deadline." Performances based on works by local authors are extremely popular among the public, but if tickets are sold out, do not despair — the repertoire of the theater includes other interesting pieces as well: from classical plays to modern drama.
The Irkutsk Drama Theater is the oldest one in Siberia. The rumor is that the theater has even seen Kolchak. "Drama," as the theater is affectionately called by the city inhabitants, has operated as an official city theater since 1985 when it became home to its first acting troupe.
