We came to St Petersburg for 3 days and decided to watch the ballet as out tour guide recommended during the 1st day of sightseeing tour. Wonderful show. Amazing dancers, beautiful decorations. It was ‘The Nutcracker’ show that I’ll never forget
I’ve heard a lot about Russian ballet but I could hardly imagine how terrific they ARE
Ballet was lovely I just wish women would tone down the perfume at these events, a lot of people suffering from sinus getting a headache from the strong smell.But even this fact couldn’t spoil the evening! Worth visiting

So much talent in Swan Lake perfomance! We enjoyed the show, it was great. Well done to all the dancers, a lot of dedication! Even when they r 20 on the stage – all move like one. Wow! My husband and I absolutely lost all sense of time and wished the show wouldn't end, despite the dancers being on stage for well over two hours. 100 out of 100! Highly recommend to experience
