We saw the Ballet performance, 'Bright Steam' on the new stage on the 3rd May. After checking out the ticket prices 3 months before the performance, I found buying the tickets on the Bolshoi website was about half the price of going to some of the ticket agents. I managed to get two seats in the middle of row 8 for 1500 RUB each. The same tickets with other outside companies were twice that amount!!!
There are 2 stages, the new which showed the Ballet and the original old stage which showed the Opera. Both are in separate buildings.
The theatre was wonderful and the performance was fantastic. It was nice that so many got dressed up for the occasion.
As expected the drinks from the bar were very expensive with a glass of champagne costing 23 pounds! So I skipped on that.
If you are in Moscow for a short time and you definitely want tickets try to get them as soon as you can. This way you will get a better choice of seat and the prices will be cheaper. Good idea to buy on the Bolshoi website to get the best seat prices and save $$$$$. http://www.bolshoi.ru/en/
