We went to see ballet and we were not disappointed at all. The theater itself is worthy, and the ballet was spectacular.

We saw the Nutcracker here on Christmas Day which was magical. The theatre is beautiful. The seats on the ground level aren't really tiered so try for a seat right at the front or on the upper levels.

We ordered tickets online from the official website - it was quite straightforward and you can print off the e-tickets. As a venue it is modern and very attractive. The opera we saw had a version of the programme available in English, and the surtitles were shown in both Russian and English. Acoustically the hall is great, and the standard... More

I've watched Magical Flute there. It was an amazing version/interpretation of the original opera adapted to the format of this Concert Hall. Amazing sound and performance! If you are there to watch opera you have to get Parterre/Balcony tickets because otherwise you will end up watching performer's backs only (if purchased Amphitheater tickets)

Amazing ballet, staging, colors and music. This epic poem of Pushkin is so much of St.Petersburg. The sound in Mariinsky II just need to be experienced.

We booked tickets on the internet in far away Botswana and ended up in a shared box with 6 other Russians. The performance of the Nutcracker Suite was just stunning. We left the theatre with our heads still singing with what we had seen. The way the theatre had been renovated with individual seats instead of joined together was really... More

Our family came to a late December evening performance of La Traviata at the new theater, the Mariinsky II. We did not get tickets before we left the US.

Beside the clasic Mariinsky Theater in the Dekabrists str. and nearby Mariinsky-2 theater hall, more modern than first one, in 2007 opened, I might say, totally modern new venue as the Concert Hall, located in Pisareva str. While designing this potential new space, it was used one existing old high brick building, sometime being the old store and was created... More
