“Bolshoi should be nervous :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

Stasik, as this theatre is coloquially called by the Moscovites, has made incredible progress over the past 10 years. The best evidence is that tickets to a number of their performances sell out well in advance and re-sellers' prices have rocketed to the skies.

Although it is clear that the Bolshoi, Moscow historical No.1 venue for opera and ballet, has greater budgets for each of their premieres, Stasik's repertoire is very diverse and generally amazing. Safe and adotable option for both big classic ballets and modern ballet (I believe this was the first company in Russia to have Nacho Duato stage his own short ballets at the time when Moscow was all about the big and serious ballet shows).

Their recently premiered 'Aida' is also bound to become one of the top highlights of the season.

And by the way, their cafe is much much better than Bolshoi's :)

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

We went to see the Little mermaid (Ballet) and it was a fantastic performance. Brilliant dancers, good music and a beautiful scenography. The Theatre itself was also a nice experience, small and cosy but with plenty of space outside. A former outdoor yard had been converted into an indoor area with Photo exhibitions and cafe.

“Great for ballet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

It is not worse than the Bolshoy. Has weaker brand but probably better repertoir. Nacho Duato's ballets are great, check if they run ones on your evening
