Full description
The folk show is put on by 3 professional folk groups. “Peters Quartet” vocal quartet will perform folk songs, lyrical romances, and Russian Orthodox hymns. “Maidan” is a Cossack song-and-dance group formed in 1992 by the revered artist V. Drachey. The group skillfully reproduces Cossack songs and dances in their original form on stage.

The “Stars of St. Petersburg” is a dance group, made up of dancers from the leading schools of choreography in Russia. Their repertoire consists of lyrical dances from the Russian North, dances of the Cossacks from the Don and Voronezh, as well as dancing miniatures of the Urals Siberia, together with some subtle humor. Spectators of all ages and tastes will be able to appreciate not only the ability of the performers to bring Russian national color to the stage, but also their level of technical and acrobatic skill. 

The shows consists of 2 parts (45 minutes each) and lasts for 1 hour and 50 minutes including the intermission, during which guests will be offered fruit, canapés with red caviar, ham, Russia-style salami, cheese, vodka, champagne, mineral water, juice, and other beverages. If you’d like to have a full meal before or after the show, book one of the two options available. You'll also have the chance to purchase local souvenirs as well as CDs and DVDs.
