Private tour to Bolshoi Theater

Welcome to the opera house where Peter Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake was performed for the first time in 1877!

Would you like to know why ballet dancers from all over the world consider this very stage the most convenient for classic dancing on pointe?

Guests are invited to the Imperial ballrooms, the lobbies, Beethoven's underground hall-transformer and sometimes to costume design workshops. For no doubts you will visit the balcony box seats of the auditorium and will get close to the stage if a rehearsal is not scheduled.

If you are more than five, you have to pay some extra amount so pls send me a letter and I will customize a tour for your group.

I suggest you book a tour as early as possible as private tours are extremelly popular!

Please note, tours are not held on weekends and in the period from July 25 to September 11 when the theater is closed for vacation.
