“Most uncomfortable chairs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Must admit I'm not an Opera buff and got very bored. Seating was not to the standard of The Bolschoi in Moscow (obviously we didn't pay a heap for the seating so not a fair comparison).

“Lovely little concert hall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

This is a good 10-minute walk from the Mariinsky Theatre itself and not easy to find!! And we had to disturb a full row of people to reach our seats because for some reason the set of doors right next to our seats was closed, but the concert was wonderful and the architecture of the space is great. The orchestra is down in the middle with seats rising up on each side, so the conductor was facing us. Comfy seats but as always in almost any theater I've ever been in, not enough ladies' toilets!

Don't miss it. The theater is historic and virtually every performance is worthwhile and memorable.
