The Mariinsky Theatre is home to the world famous Kirov Ballet company, and I found it to live up to its reputation as the best theatre in St. Petersburg. I saw three operas and one ballet at this theatre. Swan Lake at the Mariinsky was about as good as it gets when it comes to ballet. The costumes and scenery are always top-notch. The Russian operas have English subtitles, while non-Russian operas such as La Boheme have Russian subtitles.
