I absolutely adore Russian ballet, opera and theater, and every time I visit Vladivostok my friends take me to the Mariinsky Theater. The shows, the performance, the costumes, the building itself, everything is keeping up the high standards, besides the customer service. My last experience was highlighted by the interaction with the cloakroom attendant. My friend and I had arrived 20min before the show started, however, at the first floor cloakroom we were told that they run out of hangers, and since our furs didn’t have any hooks, and could’ve not been hanged by its hoods, we proceeded to the second floor. Unfortunately for us, they didn’t have the hangers either. I want to make one thing clear: Opera, theater, ballet are the events that people are tend to dress up for, and in winter, women in Russia, commonly, wear their best furs, so did we. And there were, absolutely, nothing wrong with asking for a hanger at the place where you would expect the hangers to be. We were polite, trying to explain that we don’t want our delicate furs be hanged by the hoods. After a few minutes of this debate, the lady who was working there, somehow found two extra hangers, but now she was asking us to hand her the coats “The right way”. Unfortunately my British education didn’t provide me with enough knowledge of how to hand in my outwear “the right way”. To what, the lady rolled her eyes and suggested we go learn “some manners”. In order to avoid going down on her level, we had decided to take our furs with us inside. Because of that we were stopped by a number of staff, and had to explain the situation over and over again. It is so disappointing that people with “God’s syndrome” work there and ruin the experiences at such an amazing venue! Another thing you should know that the buffet is CASH ONLY. Unfortunately for us, we didn’t know it, and discovered this fact only after standing in the line for at least 15min. We bought the drinks with the little cash we had, however we were 50rub. short (less than 1€), nice lady at the buffet told us to take the cash out and bring it back after the performance is over. It is hard to explain the location of the cash machine, but it is basically outside the main hall, but not outside the building, it’s in the space where you would buy your tickets. So after the show, we took the cash out and was trying to come back to the buffet in order to return what we had owned, however we were stopped by the “security” who didn’t let us back in. Even after explaining him the situation he didn’t change his mind, and kept telling us “it wasn’t his problem” and the rules are that you can’t come back in, once you left. At this point I was lost for words. I felt really bad for not returning, even such a little amount of money, to the worker who was genuinely nice to us. Dear Primorsky Stage of Mariinsky Theatre management team, please fix your staff, maybe invest in some customer service training. My last experience was unacceptable, and ruined the whole perspective for me. I want to be proud of the theater my home town has build, not embarrassed of it. I’ll have to think twice before bringing my American boyfriend and his family to this place, because I don’t want them to make a judgement of “our Russian mentality” based on your employees performance, you should be the face of the culture in Vladivostok, not its ass. Thank you.

Modern architectural design with spacious interiors making it a magickal and breath taking experience to witness and feel the operatic theatre. The Tsars Bride was on its premiere night on September 11, 2018, which showcased a classical tale of love, betrayal, and tragedy in a 4 part sequence of events leading the audience on the edge of their seats and gasping their breaths in anticipation of whats coming next.

We went here to see The Nutcracker, and we had the opportunity to see a number of Russian Ballet's back in Sydney and Melbourne. At the time, I was stunned by the presentations that were brought to our shores in Australia, but they were quite simply nothing compared with the experience, the sounds, and the stunning visuals that go into the Ballet at this venue. The dancers were sublime, such talent, beauty and grace and gave performances like I had never experienced anywhere. If you only do one major thing in Vladivostok, make sure this is at the top of your list. The music was brilliantly performed, exhilarating and drew as much emotions as the dancers themselves. The hosts/ushers were kind, attentive and seemed very happy to have the patrons there to experience the event.

The perfect place for those who want to see the Russian ballet. good acoustics and atmosphere. Symphony Orchestra is also at a very high level. reasonable prices in comparison with the same theaters of the world. Only cons of a long queue in wardrobe and a small parking lot.
