What's On

It is no accident that The Swan Lake has the reputation of ballet fans' favourite show. It is always a welcome sight at all of the world's greatest theatres. We are cordially inviting the public to the Mariinsky Theatre, where we will be performing this classical production on April 17. Note the vibrant scenery, designed by Vyacheslav Okunev, People's Artist of the Russian Federation.

The Nutcracker ballet has become deeply engrained in global musical culture, as a precious jewel from the treasure trove of P.I. Tchaikovsky's heritage. Year after year, thousands of people who admire this composer's genius immerse themselves in the entrancing atmosphere of dreams and faerie adventures. Everyone is welcome to the Mariinsky Theatre, where the show—with classical choreography by Vasili Vainonen—will take place on 26 April.

What is the secret behind the public's undying interest towards Giselle? This beautiful creation from the age of Romanticism still remains a prominent part of today's global repertoire, as beloved as ever. Saint Petersburg's theatres traditionally retain Marius Petipa's version of the ballet. Come join us on this fantastical adventure at the Mariinsky Theatre on 24 April!

The Yacobson Ballet Theatre will perform Marius Petipa's classical ballet Sleeping Beauty (with music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky), at the Alexandrinsky Theatre on 3 May twice: at 1 and 6 PM. The production has been staged by the distinguished French choreographer Jean-Guillaume Bart.
