Owner description: In 2001, the Mikhailovsky Theatre reclaimed its historic name, and in 2007, it was recognized as St. Petersburg's most prestigious musical theatre. Today, while preserving Russia's centuries-old musical theatre traditions, the Mikhailovsky Theatre is constantly pushing to be at the forefront of contemporary world theatre.

Expected more from going to a Russian ballet. the theatre is fairly pain, and in need of some repair. The performance itself seemed like amateur hour. Really surprised. Though not a connoisseur of Ballet, I expected the performers to keep in step with each other, and to do that with the music...

You can't go to St Petersburg without going to the ballet. Get your tickets as early as possible. We heard the ballet companies were on tour in the summer - don't believe it. We were lucky to get last minute ticket to the Mikhailovsky Theater.

Me and my husband went to see the Sleeping Beauty Ballet. Very very beautiful, wish we could see another one.
If you are planning to eat there, prefer to do it outside, before or after the ballet.

Went there for a ballet - I thought it would be more difficult to get tickets, but they have an internet service which makes the whole procedure quite easy. Performance worthy of a city like St. Petersburg.
