The oldest theatre in St Petersburg; just beautiful! Sleeping beauty was beautifully done and I loved the flowy, romantic costumes. What a priviledge to see the best ballet in the world in a lovely venue.

This was one of the best ballet performances my wife and I have seen. Even the 9 year old was captivated and sitting forward in her seat, after being so hesitant at the beginning. Flawless performance by exceptionally gifted artist!
