It was a dream come true!
To be able to come to St Petersburg and to see Swan Lake performed by the Bolshoi ballet troupe at the famous and historic Mikhailovsky Theater was indescribable.
Thank all of you for your talent,dedication and hard work for making our night unforgettable.

We attended Swan Lake here and this was our preferred theatre of the three we visited in Moscow (Bolshoi Historic Stage) and SPB (Mikhailovski and Mariinski 2). We had similar seats to those in the other theatres (Dress Circle Row 1) and the price was half (5000 RUB per seat) compared to the others. The theatre itself is just as impressive, the sets similarly extravagant but perhaps it is a bit smaller, a positive since it makes everything a bit closer to the action. Also the viewing was totally unobstructed compared to Bolshoi (for similar seats). Getting the tickets was also an easier process due to the lower popularity of this theatre (don’t have to be on-line minutes after they become available like you do for Bolshoi, we still bought ours a few days after they went on sale, and Swan Lake is a very popular show).

We were fortunate to visit St. Petersburg in February of 2020 and to get tickets for Giselle. Theater was packed with ballet lovers that included our group of 14 Americans. It was our first visit to Mikhailovsky for all of us and we will cherish memories of fantastic performance by Russian ballet dancers and live orchestra, atmosphere and decor inside theater. What a beautiful place to visit. If you in St. Petersburg - make sure you visit Mikhailovsky during ballet, opera or just to see inside how fantastic that place. I'm hoping to visit again. D

A dream come true. A wonderful fairytale brought to life through ballet. Moved to tears, the energy and emotion on stage was spellbinding. Worth the ticket price and highly recommended. A beautiful building and a lovely night out

I'll be honest. This is the first time I saw any form of ballet and it was simply stunning. Totally worth all the monies spent.

We booked for a BALLET "Corsair" at the Mikhailovsky Theater for a Matinee Show. Corsaire (French for "corsair" or "pirate"). The ballet is a romantic, oriental masterpiece, first performed in Russia in 1858 until today! The show was romantic and delightful. The artistes were surely graceful and the show not to be missed. Photos and videos were not allowed during the show.

SEE photos of building and interior.
