A very comfortable but small-ish theatre with a great orchestra. As a child, I watched the Nutcracker every Christmas in London... but I was still not prepared for this performance. Absolutely beautiful.

Too many changes I have lived in this area for more than ten years. Our windows looked directly at the theater from the back side - where there were theater workshops. Of course, I visited Opera and ballet performances several times in it. Then it...More

For decades this theatre was considered by us, muscovites, as some sort of second-rate whereas the Bolshoy - as the one and only place to see ballet and opera. But for quite some time the situation has changed - the Bolshoy became a tourist place...More

You know who will meet you at the entrance? Already in the street, at the door you will see a very seriously-looking security guard, be sure you have your tickets ready (electronic tickets no problem, I only use those now). Then there will be another...More

This is our favorite place for ballet. Although it is not immune to the behind-the-scenes intrigue and infighting that has undermined the Bolshoi, performances here are universally good. The repertoire includes the classics (Swan Lake, Giselle, Sylphide) as well as more contemporary ballets. The main...More
