What's On

The Nutcracker ballet has become deeply engrained in global musical culture, as a precious jewel from the treasure trove of P.I. Tchaikovsky's heritage. Year after year, thousands of people who admire this composer's genius immerse themselves in the entrancing atmosphere of dreams and faerie adventures. The public will get to enjoy the classical masterpiece once again on 10 January at the Mariinsky Theatre.

On 13 December, the new venue of the Mariinsky Theatre will host a unique performance, showcasing carefully restored masterpieces of the genius choreographer, Leonid Yacobson.  The show celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first concert programme that the great ballet master designed for his troupe.


It is no accident that The Swan Lake has the reputation of ballet fans' favourite show. It is always a welcome sight at all of the world's greatest theatres. We cordially invite theatre goers to the Mariinsky on 1 November, 2021. Come see the classical production with a colourful set design!

The Leonid Yacobson troupe is continuing its collaboration with the Mariinsky Theatre and will perform at its Primorsky Venue in Vladivostok during the Grand Tour.  On 26 and 27 November, the public will see Don Quixote: a unique and vibrant production. A roller-coaster of a plot and a cast of spitfire characters are brought to life by expressive choreography and lavish scenery.
