This is a touristy but fun immersion into Russian dance, music and singing. Great for kids, but get there early and sit in the front.

Terrific high-energy show! Wonderful taste of Russian folk dancing and singing!

We loved this top-notch, action-packed hand clapping, foot-stomping show! The costumes were stunning and the performers raised the roof! We worried that we'd be too tired to... read more

We loved this top-notch, action-packed hand clapping, foot-stomping show! The costumes were stunning and the performers raised the roof! We worried that we'd be too tired to enjoy it with full-on sightseeing both days at port but we're so glad we booked! The admin side of things was not great at the venue but we found good seats in the... More

This Folkloric Show was the frosting on the cake of St. Petersburg. You are greeted 1/2 way up the staircase by a string quartet and 18th C. costumed characters. They offer you either a shot of vodka or a glass of champagne. The show itself was outstanding and the costumes were beautiful. The staircase is daunting but if I can... More

This was a great family show. My kids (14, 13, 10) loved it. It was very entertaining! The dancers and singers are very talented!! But be aware the swatting is not assigned and it is first come first serve no saving. We were close to the front of the line and a group behind us was very rude and pushy.... More

The show is nice here are few tips: Come early (30-45 min) as seats are not assigned Don't expect a "buffet Dinner" as written - Refreshments maybe better definition to what you get.

Booked this show through our hotel. It's an enjoyable evening of entertainment - even though it is geared towards tourists - we had a great time. The dancers are top notch and the venue is beautiful as well. The snacks served at intermission were a bit odd, but a nice touch. There will likely be large tour groups here...so get... More

Very talented dancers and musicians but was too much like a kids' pantomime. A bit disorganised too-audience members allowed to go in and out and make noise during the performance.

We went to a 7pm performance and arrived about 6.20pm. Arrive even earlier if you are exchanging vouchers for tickets as there is only one person providing a service in an enclosed office. (You need to press a door bell and are let in if there is no one ahead of you.) There were many tour groups waiting in the... More

Russian folk dancing and singing. You don't need to understand any Russian to enjoy this show! It's very energetic and a lot of fun. I'd recommend you try and get seats towards the front and the middle so you can see the footwork of the dancers well. The trinkets and scarfs for sale are very expensive.

This was a lot of fun and really worth its price! It was such a good welcome with champaign in the majestic palace! The dancers, singers and band was very talented, and did a great job at keeping the audience satisfied. We got free food in the brake and everything was really classy! I really recommend this!
