basic russian is a huge advantage,....metro and taxies are cheap,..
book well in advance for the ballet, a raised tier seat is better about £20
main road is a 8 LANE HIGHWAY cross the road at a proper crossing

“Maybe the best ballet theatre I have ever visited”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

What a stunning place!

OK, the ballet was superb - I'm from Australia and ballet isn't as culturally important at home. It was the premiere of Swan Lake (again!) and each of the chorus could have been the principal in most ballet companies.

We had maybe the best seats in the house - for about $50 per seat - so everything was going right.

But right from the moment we walked in the door it was impressive.

I will be back. Next time I will know what to expect and will arrive an hour before so I can get a better feel for the place.

Oh, and while the building is old, it is in perfect condition, the interior must have been renovated some time in the last ten years or so - pure magic.

Love it.
