Ballet Evening at the Theatre

One Evening

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.

Unlike ballet excursions offered by most tour operators, we will bring you to performances held in any of the main, famous theaters, depending on availability: Marinsky, Mikhailovsky, Alexandrinsky, and The Hermitage Theater.

(Our driver will pick you up inside the cruise terminal and will bring you directly to the theater doors. After the performance, you will see your driver waiting with a sign outside the doors.)

    The performance was absolutely amazing and totally worth it. I have been dreaming of seeing Swan Lake in St. Petersburg for the past 20 years, and this dream finally came true. Thank you for making the process so smooth and convenient!
