  • Begin your evening by getting ready together, selecting your finest attire to match the elegance of the evening. A taxi ride through the city takes you to the classic Mariinsky Theatre. The glow of the chandeliers and the velvet upholstery set the tone for a night of romance.
  • As the curtains rise, surrender yourself to the beauty and grace of the ballet dancers. The orchestral music fills the room, and you find yourself captivated by the talent on stage. Share this magical experience with your partner, as you enjoy the ballet together.
  • Following the show, walk arm in arm down the Nevsky Prospect under the beautiful city lights. Discuss your favourite moments from the ballet, revel in the enchanting atmosphere, and enjoy each other's company. This unforgettable experience will bring you even closer to one another than before

Preparation steps:

  • A little research about the ballet performance you are going to watch can enhance your experience, get you familiar with the characters and help you follow the story. Make sure you dress appropriately for the event - think smart-casual attire or evening wear, depending on the specific performance and venue.
  • Ensure that you book your tickets in advance as popular performances often sell out quickly. You may want to arrive early to secure a good seat, relish the atmosphere, and read the program before the show starts.
  • Lastly, arrange a taxi or verify public transportation to ensure you arrive at the theatre on time. Being late could mean you miss out on the opening act, which often sets the scene for the entire performance.

Some tips:

  • Try to avoid talking during the performance as it can be distracting for both the performers and the other attendees. Instead, save your comments for the intermissions or after the show.
  • Remember, attending a ballet is more than just watching a performance; it is an experience. Take in the beauty of the theatre, the skill of the performers, and the ambiance of the entire evening.
  • Don't forget to enjoy the city after the ballet. The Nevsky Prospect is beautifully illuminated at night, and there are numerous cafes and bars if you wish to continue your date with a late-night drink or dessert.
