The show itself is splendid. The music and dancing are first rate. The costumes are beautiful. A fantastic, if slightly touristy, night out. The problem is that there the seating is first-come, first-served. The producers also added extra seats in the aisles which makes moving about difficult and could be dangerous if there was an emergency. My advice is to... More

GO EARLY as seats are not assigned and are on first come first seat basis. The show was touristy but we are tourists so it was delightfully funny, very musically talented with excellent dancers and stage presence. Beware at the break when champagne and snacks are served that once you leave your seats that are open for anyone to move... More

Thought going to be tourist ripoff. So wrong, talent was amazing. Two hours of excellent entertaiment with a Russian buffet in the interval. Great stuff.

We really enjoyed this show. Gorgeous costumes, exhilarating dances, lots of humour, lovely singing and beautiful surroundings. Added to which, we were given a delicious supper. A great night out if you are in St Petersburg. Only downside was that it was hard to see in back rows. Tiered seating would be good.

The show started with some russian songs and i found myself begin to get bored, but within minutes Feel Yourself Russian becomes fun and entertaining. the performers are enthusiastic, costumes are beautiful and the live music makes it so much more enjoyable. The singers and musicians did their job really really well. Though a little touristy and cheesy, its a... More

Booked my ticket through email. Paid when I collected the ticket. Simple, no hassle. The show was quite good, a bit rough round the edges, with great laugh provided by the commentaries of the Aussies sitting behind me. Don't expect too much from the (finger) food provided, but as it was served at the pretty balcony, with strings accompaniment and... More

We saw this show a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. The building, the singing, the energy of the dancing, the enthusiasm of the performers and their byplay with audience makes it a very enjoyable 1-2 hours "sample" of Russian dancing and music. We sat only a couple of rows back and I was lucky? enough to be chosen... More

I was surprised how good this show was. Expecting the usual touristy display, I found myself instead really enjoying the full 1.5hrs of dancing and singing. Very impressive and well worth it. Don't expect much re food mad drinks, but the show makes up for this.

The artists performed as if for the first time, lively and full of enthusiasm. The singing, dancing, balalaika band, costumes were all that you could wish for. Get there early to get a good seat, bring some money, there are free drinks and canapés but also items for sale including beautiful drawings of St Petersburg being sold for very little... More

The show was very good however it is open seating, so get there early. It’s an old theatre and the seats are all at the same level and the stage is not very high so it’s hard to see if you are not near the front. The other option is to sit in the last row where you can stand... More
