What to expect

The Hermitage Theater welcomes you for an enchanting performance of the classic Russian ballet Swan Lake composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, consisting of three acts and four scenes and accompanied by the St. Petersburg State Governor's Symphony orchestra.

The theater was built during the reign of Catherine the Great and was used for private theatrical performances for the royal family. The glorious palatial interiors will make you feel like nobility attending a ball or a grand reception. During the show, you will be entertained by high-skilled dancers and charmed by amazing music. The beauty of the performance will catch your attention from the beginning to end.

The Hermitage Theater is normally closed to the public so the ballet gives visitors to Saint Petersburg the opportunity to explore its interiors and enjoy the show.

Round-trip transfers from a hotel/cruise port are available for an extra charge. Select this when booking.
