St. Petersburg evening programs

An evening of Russian Ballet or Opera

The best theater in our city (and one of the most famous in the world) is The Mariinsky (former Kirov Ballet and Opera Theater). The cost of tickets is about $100-200 per person, (by the way, the price for the best possible seats does not mean the most expensive one) + transfer to the theater and back (the cost depends on number of people in your group): it is worth of every penny-even not knowing you and your private preferences we are sure you will like it.

We have several other ballet companies, most of which perform "Swan Lake" (music by Tchaikovsky) or «Giselle» almost every day - the cost is about $100-120 (without transfer). A playbill will be known 1,5 months prior the day of performance.

Please keep in mind that in August-September the Mariinsky's dancers are on their vacations but some other Ballet and Opera companies keep performing on its stage.

«St Petersburg Opera» theatre: beautiful, cozy and small theater in the very down town of St Petersburg will impress you very much; they are particular famous for their comic operas.
