The Russian National Dance Show "Kostroma" is an excellent production. The costumes, special effects, lighting, dance, everything was wonderful. You may not be able to understand Russian, but you won't need to in order to understand the story being told. Just outstanding.

I agree with all the positive reviews. This is not a cheap show for tourists. It was incredible! The best show that I have seen in years. We saw it on the last night of the season and the dancers' energy levels were sky high.
