For decades this theatre was considered by us, muscovites, as some sort of second-rate whereas the Bolshoy - as the one and only place to see ballet and opera. But for quite some time the situation has changed - the Bolshoy became a tourist place...More

You know who will meet you at the entrance? Already in the street, at the door you will see a very seriously-looking security guard, be sure you have your tickets ready (electronic tickets no problem, I only use those now). Then there will be another...More

This is our favorite place for ballet. Although it is not immune to the behind-the-scenes intrigue and infighting that has undermined the Bolshoi, performances here are universally good. The repertoire includes the classics (Swan Lake, Giselle, Sylphide) as well as more contemporary ballets. The main...More

Really a place to go to watch ballet or Opera, the quality of the artists is as good as the Bolshoi, and the programs are very often very interesting...

This is my favorite favorite place in Moscow for ballet. Not as famous as fancy Bolchoi Theatre but the best alternative for high quality and relatively reasonable prices. Plus the theatre is rather small so you have a great view from anywhere in the room....More

The night was wonderful. Liked it from beginning to end. Thank you Stanislavsky and Nemirovich. I'm not really a "opera-goer" but definitely worth the experience. Will be back. For non-Russian the provided texts could be also provided in English(?) - minor details Mme Butterfly!!

The theatre has a very good quality repertoire. In terms of opera, the best choice would be to catch a performance with Hibla Germzlava (she is one of the resident singers of this theatre). The theatre itself is quite stylish after the renovation, with a...More

If you are a lover of Russian ballet, come and see the performances of Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Music Theatre. I loved "The Nutcracker" very much, both music and dancing were of high quality. The theatre itself has recently been reconstructed so it is...More

Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first
glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long
street populated with well-known shops and brands. But
it’s more than shopping that makes this place
interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running
parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just
behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy
