Mariinskiy Theatre

The Mariinskiy Theatre has long been one of the world’s most respected venues for opera and ballet. It has seen premieres by such greats as Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev, while the dance school attached to it produced Nureyev and Nijinsky. When it was first opened to the public in 1860, the Mariinskiy boasted the largest stage in the world. A second stage located just behind the original theatre opened in 2013 and boasts some of the world’s best acoustics.
