We watched Swan Lake on 7th July and sat in the stall boxes near the stage - the tickets were definitely worth the 16,000 roubles. A phenomenal building, great but basic seats, excellent acoustics, and easy to get to and from.

Bad. Worst than ever thought. 90% of people were polite enough to wait until intermission to leave. It was world premiere. 50% of audience and even some chorus performers were dozing off within 10 minutes. Bad music. Boring. Not comprehensible story line. Bad. Bad. Bad

Beautiful setting of seats, good acoustics on time performance wretched perfect but couldn't enjoy as the ballet because of our limited exposure on Russian folklore.

Attended a concert performance of Donizetti's opera Anna Bolena here yesterday evening, though my impression is that this hall is used principally for soloists and for chamber music. Almost a full house. Great acoustics in a modern space converted from an old industrial building. I...More

This was the best Magic Flute we have seen, and we have seen - and heard - many. The direction by Alain Maratrat was fine indeed, the orchestra was superb and most of the singers also. This was the first time we were in the...More

There is no formal attire unless it's a big gala. I was surprised it was not more dressy. The Russians are there for the music and dressing up, at least when I attended, was not mandatory. I wore a simple sweater dress and... More
