Backstage visit to the Mariinsky Theatre

Duration3 hours
Period Every day


We invite you to visit the world-famous theatre – Mariinsky.  Before the impressive show you have a chance to go behind side scenes of this marvelous theatre. You will have an opportunity to look at the stage from the Royal Box, where Russian tsars and their guests used to enjoy performances. The most fantastic part of this excursion will be Golovinsky Hall, which is located right under the theatre’s cupola. Since 18th century – this is the very place where stills for the performances are being created. After the excursion you can share your impressions at the charming "Backstage" Restaurant which recreates that special atmosphere with all its touching details. The restaurant is so thoroughly steeped in the spirit of the theatre that you feel you are part of a ritual. The old piano in the corner conjures up images of Tatyana Larina from Eugeny Onegin and Liza from The Queen of Spades. The Egyptian statues that gaze down impassively on it – all probably remember hundreds of staging of Aida. There are also shields, swords and candelabra – and a fully operational ballet "bar". All these theatrical props blend perfectly with the exquisite table settings and the modern cuisine
