Culture vultures will love this trip. You can get all dressed-up and spend an evening in a theatre that has filled its stage with plays, operas, and ballets for centuries. St Petersburg is a must-visit if you’re a fan of the ballet, as the Russian aristocracy took a real interest in the dance in the late 18th and early 19th century. The nobility commissioned the building of many theatres across the city, and there are over 100 dotted along its streets today, some of which are world-famous. On your way to the ballet, you’ll get a scenic drive around St Petersburg, before taking your seat, ready for the curtain to rise. The dancers will perform one of the classic ballets – a timeless love story told through dance. In the interval, you can sip a glass of Russian sparkling wine, before settling down for the finale.
The minimum age for this tour is 6 years old. Photography is restricted during the performance.
If you’re planning to go ashore in St Petersburg and you're joining us on one of our organised shore excursions, you will be covered by our group visa. But if you wish to go ashore independently at anytime, you’ll need to obtain your own visa from the Russian Federation Embassy prior to your cruise.
