This is our favorite place for ballet. Although it is not immune to the behind-the-scenes intrigue and infighting that has undermined the Bolshoi, performances here are universally good. The repertoire includes the classics (Swan Lake, Giselle, Sylphide) as well as more contemporary ballets. The main stage theatre is not cavernous so the view is always good. And prices are much...

Really a place to go to watch ballet or Opera, the quality of the artists is as good as the Bolshoi, and the programs are very often very interesting...

This is my favorite favorite place in Moscow for ballet. Not as famous as fancy Bolchoi Theatre but the best alternative for high quality and relatively reasonable prices. Plus the theatre is rather small so you have a great view from anywhere in the room. I would go every week if I could!

My wife and I went to see the Nutcracker ballet at the Stanislavskiy theatre, which overall was a fantastic experience. As avid ballet lovers we have seen several productions of this ballet but this was one if not the best of them all - a true classic performed devotedly to Chaikovskiy's score. The orchestra, the corps de ballet and the... More

The night was wonderful. Liked it from beginning to end. Thank you Stanislavsky and Nemirovich. I'm not really a "opera-goer" but definitely worth the experience. Will be back. For non-Russian the provided texts could be also provided in English(?) - minor details Mme Butterfly!!

The theatre has a very good quality repertoire. In terms of opera, the best choice would be to catch a performance with Hibla Germzlava (she is one of the resident singers of this theatre). The theatre itself is quite stylish after the renovation, with a large pleasant atrium, where it is nice to have a glass of prosecco

My wife and I went to see Esmeralda while in Moscow. This ballet was wonderful from a top notch ballet company. I can't recommend this highly enough. Try to get your hotel concierge to help you buy the tickets direct from the website (you will save a fortune).

If you are a lover of Russian ballet, come and see the performances of Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Music Theatre. I loved "The Nutcracker" very much, both music and dancing were of high quality. The theatre itself has recently been reconstructed so it is very well-organised. I adored the glass ceiling in the buffet, it's so unusual to be... More

I visited 3 opera performances in 2 days - and all of them were excellent. Particularly impressive was the one on their Small Stage! However, you have to choose where you sit carefully, as the acoustics are not good everywhere.

Attended a corporate event here involving a 40-minute performance that was moving and quirky in equal measure, but always professional and beautifully executed. The venue looks brand new with its recent refurbishment, and the auditorium is small enough to add an intimacy that the bigger theatres can't match. This evening may have converted me to ballet.

Neighbourhood Profile
Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
