Stasik, as this theatre is coloquially called by the Moscovites, has made incredible progress over the past 10 years. The best evidence is that tickets to a number of their performances sell out well in advance and re-sellers' prices have rocketed to the skies.
Although it is clear that the Bolshoi, Moscow historical No.1 venue for opera and ballet, has greater budgets for each of their premieres, Stasik's repertoire is very diverse and generally amazing. Safe and adotable option for both big classic ballets and modern ballet (I believe this was the first company in Russia to have Nacho Duato stage his own short ballets at the time when Moscow was all about the big and serious ballet shows).
Their recently premiered 'Aida' is also bound to become one of the top highlights of the season.
And by the way, their cafe is much much better than Bolshoi's :)
