Bolshoi Ballet tickets

Is there 'dual-pricing' for tickets to the Bolshoi?

I have been on the website and it seems that I can buy tickets for around 250 Roubles. I just wondered whether that is Russian price and when I actually try to buy the tickets would I be charged a higher price?

Hallo again,Kate.

The way to get tickets to Bolshoy depends on the popularity of the performance. If it is not especially popular you can get the tickets at the pay desk directly but there is big possibility that you will need to stand in line. I use as a rule internet sites as



I recommend to call the tel. number that you can see at the site. Internet booking will be more long.

I just called to ebilet.ru and asked: have you englishspeaking staff? - Yes. Have you different prises to Bolshoy for foreigners? - No. (Mariinsky at St.-Peterb. has).

Hope yoy will enjoy))

I would advise you to use the primary source - Bolshoi's own site at http://boxoffice.bolshoi.ru/eng/sales.html

You will buy tickets directly from the theatre's box office.

Hi Kate, I have just bought my tickets on their site and they worked out at about 130 euro for 2 good seats (similar to London prices really). When you go on the site you pick the date and then the show time (if there is a matinee). Depending on where the seats are dictates the price! My credit card has been charged and I have printed off a reference number etc with instructions on when/where to collect from box office when we arrive in Moscow. When are you going? We are going for our Easter...
