Experience world renowned beauty during your visit to one of the fabulous ballet theaters in the Imperial capital. Feel like royalty in its 19th century golden interiors, surrounded by magnificent crystal chandeliers and illustrious velvet upholstery.
Russian ballet has a rich history of fame and glory going back to the early 1700s. The world-famous Russian ballet school, has brought up such names as Pavlova, Vaganova, Ulanova, Nureyev, Baryshnikov, and many more.
Shows are accompanied by a live orchestra, performing compositions by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Glinka, and others. An evening ballet remains as one of the most luxurious and unique attractions for locals and guests of the city.
