I have attended dozens of performances in the Philharmonic - from Spivakov to the Beatles (a reenactment group) to Matzuyev. I am never disappointed. The tickets are reasonable and there isn't a bad seat in the house. You will enjoy the architecture inside and out. The acoustics are great. Don't hesitate to enjoy great music while you are in Samara.

Interesting architecture, good aqustic and light. And also the nice sound when the famous orcestras play and poular actors sing the songs. The big german Orgel is the surprise.

Performers from all over the country as well as other countries can be seen here. To a foreigner, I would especially recommend seeing some kind of a folk show (dance or singing) if there is one...
