Catch your private car at the hotel lobby and start your Brilliant Ballet evening. It is time to admire one of the classical ballet performances on the outstanding ballet stages of the world famous Mariinsky Theatre. 

Blue and gold are the colours of the world-famous Mariinsky Theatre, one of the world's top 10 ballet stages. The five-circled hall of the theatre has remained almost unchanged since its rebuilding by Alberto Kavos in 1859. The hall was designed as the leading theatre of Russian Empire. Such renowned masterpieces as "Swan Lake," "Nutcracker," "Eugene Onegin," "Prince Igor," and "Iolanta" plus many others were created and premiered here. Usually, the starting time of the performance is 7pm. Your ticket guarantees you seats and ensures excellent views of the stage and every moment of the stunning performances, songs and choreography.

At the end of applause, the ballet masters walk to one of the best Russian restaurants in St. Petersburg, located just 160 feet (50 meters) from the Mariinsky Theatre. This theatre is regarded as the Main Stage of the Russian Empire, where Tchaikovsky's masterpieces like "Swan Lake", "Nutcracker" and "Sleeping Beauty" were born. You will be able to enjoy authentic Russian cuisine in an elegant interior. Enjoy a traditional Russian 2-course dinner (soft drinks and wine included). 

During this dinner, you will meet and talk to the Mariinsky (Kirov) Ballet dancer who just danced during the performance at the Mariinsky theatre! The ballet dancer and the translator will come to the restaurant 30-60 minutes after the show when the ovations end. During your 25-30-minute meeting, she or he will tell you about their experience of working in one of the world's best ballet companies (and often considered as world's leading) and answer your questions. 

Don't forget to take a couple of selfies and to get an autograph, as this young and promising dancer may become one of the world's ballet stars like Ulyana Lopatkina, Natalia Osipova, Anna Pavlova or Mikhail Baryshnikov, who also started their career as Mariinsky corps de ballet dancers. 

After the meeting is over, continue to enjoy your dinner and share the impressions of the evening as you don't need to hurry up. With your appetite sated, hop back inside your coach and come back to your hotel (our driver will wait for you until you finish). Just be satisfied with this complete service and don't worry about anything. Our professional staff will take care of your evening.
