“Bravo Swan lake”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

We were lucky enough to get four tickets (seated separately) just four hours before the show. Whats better is that its half price! Whilst none of us has been to ballet or know anything about ballet, it is such an amazing show. Beautiful performance, thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

“Loved the ballet and opera”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The theatre is amazing. So grand. Worth a visit just to see inside. We went to a performance of la Boheme and a performance of swan lake. The opera was a fabulous performance. An very inexpensive. The price of a box was less than what we would pay for one ticket at home. However, the ballet was even better. What an amazing experience, they must be the best ballet company in the world (or close to it). The stage, the costumes, the dancers, the choreography, the orchestra was a performance never to be forgotten. A must see in st Petersburg.

“The Russian Ballet Experience”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

On the 31st of May, we went to see the "La Bayadere" Ballet in this very theater located between the russian museum and the Nevsky prospect. The dancers were quite formidable on their own (not to mention the Orchestra) and the ballet was sprinkled with emotions and grace making this performance a great experience. Most of the people attending this performance are from the high-society and you'll see plenty of them all spruced up for the occasion.

Seat Prices depends on availability and can reach above 5000p for that kind of perfromance.

“Small, beautiful intimate theatre!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This was our best ballet experience. Tickets for theatre on line and you can print your own. We saw Romeo and Juliet. This was for us the most beautiful, heartfelt, well danced ballet I think we have ever experienced. We sat in the 2nd row and it was worth every Rouble. Once in a lifetime experience. We really enjoyed the intimacy of this theatre! BTW orchestration also superb....

“Great variety of performances”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

This is "the other" great music theatre in St. Petersburg. They performe great ballet and opera performances of which some are very innovative and avantgarde. The quality is very high and there's so much to choose from that anybody should be able to find something to meet his taste.
