Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Experience a classic Russian ballet performed by a local troupe in one of St. Petersburg's historic theater venues, a special oppertunity that is a perfect choice after a day of seeing the sights. St. Petersburg is famous for its rich theatrical life. In old times, the Russian nobility took a deep interest in ballet, encouraging and supporting the construction of theaters in St. Petersburg. Today the city boasts a large number of exquisite 19th century theatrical buildings. Several theatres are world famous such as the Mikhailovsky, Hermitage, Alexandrinsky theaters. You will be visiting one of these or other historic venues for an evening of classic Russian Ballet.

Dress to impress, then board your comfortable motorcoach as you drive from the port into a city that sparkles at night. Upon arrival you will be escorted to your seat. The music swells, the curtain rises and you are transported into a world of grace, beauty, love and immortality. Lose yourself in the passion and mystery of classical ballet and be swept away by the timeless love stories that unfold before your eyes. The repertoire is always changing, but you'll be treated to a locally produced performance of one of the classics, such as Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Giselle or Sleeping Beauty, or you might see a selection of scenes from a variety of shows.

During intermission, toast to this lovely evening with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. At the conclusion of the evening, gaze out the window and watch the sights go by as you return to the ship after your memorable evening.
