Lovely evening but the beautiful theatre was packed to capacity and we were squished together on the bench seats. Our bus arrived a bit late so we had very little choice of where to sit - some seats are much better than others.

All-tourist audience but the ballet is very enjoyable and the theatre is a historic venue. If you are a real ballet fan, you may want to independently book the main St Petersburg ballet (book well in advance and prepare to pay a lot!).

We saw Sleeping Beauty at the Mikhailvsky Theatre. The performance was sublime. Costumes, staging, orchestra, dancers, and our front row seats! Also the being left at a restaurant in St P for dinner before the performance gave us a tiny taste of being independent in the city. I know these performances are for tourists, but they keep dancers and musicians employed and allow for large, spectacular scenery sets that a short run would not allow. I visited my inner little girl, and my imagined perfection of ballet. Read Less
