“Contradictory feeling”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Exceptional acoustics in this modern and beautiful in a very special way concert hall. But still its style has nothing to do with sofisticated St.Petersburg architecture.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Heard Yuja Wong in a marvelous performance. The theater's clean lines and modern aesthetics are beautiful and functional with great sounds. The ability to purchase online was also a plus. In terms of directions, make sure you realize that the concert hall is a little distance away from "the" Mariinsky Theatre.

“The best addition to St Petersburg's Cultural Offering in the lay 10 years”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

The addition of a concert hall to the main hall of the Mariinsky Theatre was a miracle. It was built after a fire burnt down the original building that used to house the Mariinsky's costumes. Acoustics are great, programming is generally excellent and the seats and sight lines are both generally good. Even the prices are moderate for once rats of this calibre. I only hope that the Mariinky Second Stage will prove as successful.

“Attending a Classical Music Concert in St. Petersburg was so much fun.”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Attending a Classical Music Concert in St. Petersburg was so much fun. The performances were absolutely beautiful and I was enthralled with the conductor (he was so passionate and on queue), and with the main player(s) (who stood right behind the conductor). Aside from being extremely talented, the main player(s) were very enthusiastic as well. I recommend buying the tickets beforehand, and picking them up the day of the performance. The tickets were also reasonably priced. The hubby and I got great seats, and we paid a total of $32 USD for both (approximately). I would classify this as a definite must do if you’re in St. Petersburg.
