Fantastic surprisingly great show! We knew it would be touristy but who cares! Fabulous immersion into singing , wonderful dance, Cossacks and traditional. Excellent musicians. Just really fun and the performers were top class and looked like they genuinely enjoyed performing. Nice to have a drink and canapés at interval. Only problem was staff were not very friendly or welcoming..... More

This was a very good an entertaining show with typical Russian song and dance. The performers was very good. There was serving vodka and champagne in the intermission. The only problem is that the floor is flat so if you get a seat in the back rows you can have a problem to see all of the performers. It is... More

This is a professional and entertaining show. Sometimes these kinds of shows disappoint, but this one did not. There were 12 of us who attended, and each of us thought it was wonderful. The cast seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. The snacks served are nothing to rave about although. The Palace is gorgeous. They sell souvenirs... More

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 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
