You dont have to spend a lot to see a Classic Ballet. I paid less than 25 euros for my ticket and you can see the entire spetacle very well even in the cheapest seats. Dont need to use black tie Also

There is no formal attire unless it's a big gala. I was surprised it was not more dressy. The Russians are there for the music and dressing up, at least when I attended, was not mandatory. I wore a simple sweater dress and... More
