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

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

Front row seats for AU$50 what a treat. Russians love their ballet and many in the audience will know the performers. Cheer for a good performance as required, such fun. Check out the orchestra in the pit during interval, everyone else will. Hang out in...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
