What's On

This unique programme celebrates Leonid Yacobson, an outstanding 20th century choreographer, and features a number of his famous shows, painstakingly recreated and revived: The Wedding Cortège one-act ballet and several masterful miniatures from the Rodin and Classicism-Romanticism cycles. The programme's première was originally timed to honour the 50th anniversary of the very first concert that Yacobson staged for his troupe, presenting it with great success in June 1971.

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!

What is the secret behind the public's undying interest towards Giselle? This beautiful creation from the age of Romanticism still remains a prominent part of today's global repertoire, as beloved as ever. Saint Petersburg's theatres traditionally retain Marius Petipa's version of the ballet. Come join us on this fantastical adventure at the Mariinsky Theatre on 25 September!

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.
