I will be in SPB on 22 August and would love to see a ballet. I know that the Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky are on summer break but I have the following two options instead (both Swan Lake):
1. Yacobsons Ballet at the Mariinsky
2. St. Petersburg Tchaikovsky Ballet at the Alexandrinsky
Any suggestions on which would be the better experience?
There are still quite a lot of seats at both theatres, particularly at the Mariinsky. Can you recommend best seating options?
