Beautiful theatre is home of the Tchaikovsky Ballet. Beautiful setting to watch Swan Lake. It was wonderful. Get here early so that you can check out the park in front and the impressive statue of Catherine the Great.

Alexandrinsky theatre is situated in Ostrovskogo Square. It is a very impressive building and well worth visiting for a photo opportunity.

Saw a marvellous production of Swan Lake here while in St Petersburg - from the cheap seats (only 800 RUB up in the Gods!). The interior is incredibly ornate, and its design maximises viewing from most angles. Try to catch a performance here if you...More
