We saw Jenufa in this beautiful theatre. We had a box on the ground floor, which was nice but not spectacular. The boxes on the balcony looked much nicer. But really worth it.

Recommend a visit to a Mariinsky performance if you ever visit St Peterburg. Culture at its very best.

We are coming to St Petersburg on the Stpeterline ferry from Helsinki on the 72 hour visa free programme. We would very much like to attend the ballet at the Mariinsky theatre, and are happy to book tickets on line, but do we need to have a visa to go to the Mariinsky theatre? We can walk around the city and go to the Hermitage but can we go to the Mariinsky Theatre?
