When you are St Petersburg you must go to the ballet. It would be like going to Cairo and not seeing the Pyramids! The Rimsky- Korsakov Conservatory is a theatre built in the (1760's so I'm told) and is an attraction in itself. I was...More
We purchased tickets to see performance of Cinderella thriugh our hotel and tickets were delivered the next day. The theatre itself is a little run down, but this adds to the character and you get a feel of the history of the place. The performance...More
Across the street from the Mariinsky Theatre is a music school known as the St. Petersburg Conservatoire, which is a ballet and music school. The building, built in the 1890s, is showing its age. They have remodeled and rebuilt many of the fine old buildings...More

These young college aged students of Ballet were amazing and could give Milwaukee Ballet a run for their money. The Stage Orchestra was as good as some Symphony Orchestras here in Southeastern Wisconsin. The Conservatory itself was old and still showing signs of the Communist...More
We got tickets via our tour group leader and the price and seats were good, for the performance of Eugene Onegin. The venue is 20 mins walk from the closest metro station. It was my first classic opera and even though I don't speak Russian...More
Really well worth getting tickets online before you go. These tickets are are less expensive. We managed to get a front row seat!
Loved the scenery and the costumes - my first ballet experience and I was blown away!
