Full description
No trip to St. Petersburg would be complete without a viewing of the world-famous Nutcracker Ballet. Originally written and composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and performed in the Mariinsky Theater, this performance is based on the classic Christmas fairy tale.

The ballet is performed at a variety of venues across St. Petersburg and as soon as your booking is made, the local tour operator will inform you which theater the ballet will be performed at, as well as the seats secured.

Along with the Nutcracker, you can watch a Russian Circus performance - an essential part of local culture and a must-see for family travelers. Children will be able to enjoy the Nutcracker or Russian Circus in St Petersburg.

Take the stress out of ordering the tickets, and enjoy the luxury of having them delivered straight to your hotel in time for the show. You can even opt for hotel pickup to the theater and escape the city's busy public transport.
