  • Your date begins in the early evening. Both of you dress up for the occasion and meet in front of the majestic Russian ballet theater. A doorman, in his crisp uniform, welcomes you into a world of elegance and sophistication.
  • Inside, you take your seats and absorb the atmosphere. The ornate setting, the velvet chairs, and the soft lighting all contribute to the magic. The performance is mesmerizing, the dancers moving with elegance and grace, telling a timeless tale of love and intrigue. The music fills the room, capturing the tragedy, the joy, and the passion of the story.
  • During the intermissions, you retreat to one of the glamorous bars or lounges, having drinks, discussing the performance, and enjoying one another's company in a beautiful environment. After the ballet, you can either wind down with a post-performance drink or opt for a light dinner in a nearby restaurant. Either way, your night ends on a high note, having experienced a truly memorable romantic date.

Preparation steps:

  • First, purchase tickets in advance, ensuring you get the best seats available. Arranging dinner or drinks afterward can also make for a smooth sailing of the night. Make sure you double-check the timing of the performance and prepare to arrive early.
  • Dress up for the occasion. A Russian ballet performance is a formal event, and part of the experience is to see and be seen in your finest attire. Men should opt for a suit and women can channel their inner ballerina with an elegant dress.
  • Lastly, don't forget to read up a bit on the ballet performance you're about to watch. Understanding the story will surely enhance your experience and will give you plenty of material to discuss during the intermissions or after the performance.

Some tips:

  • Remember that ballet performances often start right on time, and arriving late usually means waiting until the intermission to be seated. So, to fully enjoy the experience, arrive early.
  • Pay attention to the dress code. In places such as the Bolshoi Theatre, dress attire is required. A date at the ballet is a perfect excuse to bring out your best outfits.
  • Lastly, if neither of you are familiar with ballet, don't worry. Much of the enjoyment derives from the beautiful dancing, the live orchestra, and the overall spectacle of the event. You don't need to be an expert to appreciate the beauty of ballet.
