We are British, visiting St. Petersburg 10-13 April, and would like to book tickets for the Laurencia ballet on Friday 11. On the Mikhailovsky heatre website I was able to select seats and go to the checkout, but then it won't give me any payment options. I contacted the theatre and they tell me I can't buy from their website and have to go through an agent (balletandopera.com). This website is very expensive for the same tickets, and actually not even the same selection of seats are available as on the theatre's own website. Does anyone know a way to get round this? I really don't want to have to pay these elevated prices on the agent website as it seems so unfair.
Thanks in advance for any insight/help that anyone can offer me!
