Always wanted to see Swan Lake Ballet in St Petersburg Russia. Dancers were wonderful. Theater ornate and lovely. Sparkling wine at first intermission but don’t leave after second break stay for the Stalin happy ending. Recommend this night out.

My two companions and I were enthralled by this absolutely gorgeous performance. The dancers are fabulous, the sets are exquisite, and the music is beautiful. Don't miss it.
