The theatre is quite nice- lots of gold and red glitz. There are little individual balconies scattered around the theatre- 5 levels of them. Each balcony holds 5 people. Choose seats carefully if in the balconies- seats 1 and 3 are in the front. 2,4,5...More

The Alexandrinsky's design is similar to that od the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. Thus, it's extremely impressive! I bought tickets to see Gogol's The Government Inspector and it was one of the best performances I've seen in Russia. The cast gave an outstanding performance. The...More

The interior of this theater is classic old charm. That's the beauty of it. Otherwise, there's nothing else that can be said about this historic theater. The acoustics are mediocre at best, the ventilation and air conditioning on a warm evening in late May was...More
