Opera Performances

opera
If you wish to enjoy opera in St.Petersburg honestly speaking summer is the worst time to come. Still with some luck you might have a choice between the Mariinsky (old name Kirov) and Michailovsky (old name Musorgsky) theaters.

I personally would rather pick the Michailovsky. The quantity of premiers within recent couple of years, the European and Russian stars who have worked with it, the wide opera repertoire - all of this keeps the local public interested and excited. I would say that Michailovsky is fashionable in St.Petersburg - in a good sense of this word.

The Mariinsky is an old, traditional brand. Top quality for a top price. A no risk choice.

Also please have a look at my comments regarding the Dress code for Ballet & Opera performances.
