Looking for some classical music in August in Moscow and S. Petersburg and came across this site:


Has anyone used it and knows if its a reliable site?

Any thoughts on "Moscow City Ballet", "The Russian State Ballet Theatre" and "National Ballet of Russia "?

Thanks so much in advance!

Have just booked tickets directly with the Bolshoi and Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg for September/ October. MUCH cheaper than the site you list.

The bad news is most companies are on vacation in summer. The worse news is there are "soundalike" companies.

I know nothing abt the first 2. The Natl ballet of Russia is not really a ballet but a folkloric dance company. They are pretty awesome, with great production values, but you can buy tix direct. They perform at the Cosmos hotel.
