“The best for Ballet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

THe Bolshoi rightly bears its reputation as the best ballet company and venue in the world. The theater is truly beautiful and the performance we saw was most memorable. It is, however, pricey, but we were the lucky beneficiaries of complimentary tickets.

“Attend a ballet is possible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We saw Spartacus. The ballet was excellent, but tickets were expensive.
The building itself is worth a visit, cannot explain in writing how great this place is.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

if you have the chnce to walk in front on Bolshoi during a "prima" of a great ballet you will share a magnificient outside spectable the city offer to all her viistors and citizens. A very sofhisticated magic colours and images projection on the front facade will astonigh you and you will feel to be in the theatre!

“Legend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Buying in advance can save you some money, try to ask your local friends. I can say that this is my favorite place in Moscow.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Just do it and don't worry about the very high cost. Well worth the cost. The "Neverland" restaurant is across the street.
