A Magical Night at the Opera. "Take your seats ladies and gentlemen"
The Mariinsky Theatre is the home of the world-famous Kirov Opera and Ballet. Before the 1917 Revolution the elegant blue and gold Mariinsky was a part of the Imperial Russian Theatres which belonged to the Tsar himself. Enormous sums of money were spent on entertaining the Romanovs and St Petersburg high society. The premieres of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty both took place at the Mariinsky during the reign of Nicholas II. Some of the most talented singers and dancers performed on its stage, including Fyodor Chaliapin, Anna Pavlova and Vatslav Nijinsky. Now you too can recreate that golden age, when you take your seats in the private box reserved for the "Petersburg Tour", at the Mariinsky, for a performance of opera or ballet. For the ultimate evening, you may book a limousine to take you in luxury to this legend among theatres, for an evening that is the highlight of a trip to St Petersburg.
