The Perm Tchaikovsky Opera and Ballet Theater has become the hallmark of the city and a real architectural gem.

🧾 Your purchased tickets for the long-awaited premiere are waiting in your pocket and your soul trembles with delight. Ahead of you await several hours of magical unity of classical music and a grandiose dance performance.

👀 The movements of ballet dancers at the limit of physical capabilities, luxurious costumes and the melodies of the orchestra that captivate the imagination fascinate and make you forget about everything.

🎭 The Perm Theater building is in the style of classicism, built at the end of the 19th century, according to the project of architect Rudolf Karvovsky, and, after experiencing a large-scale “retrofitting” in the Soviet years, still impresses with its scope.

👑 Majestic stairs made of light marble lead from one floor to another, whose whiteness stands out against the background of azure-blue walls. In the foyer, massive windows rush to painted ceilings with marvelous scenes and luxurious lamps that exude warm light.

👥 The semicircular corridors are filled with a gentle hum of talking spectators. How many venerable connoisseurs of ballet walked unhurriedly within these walls, whiling away the intermission for conversations and reflections…

How to get to the ballet?

✈️ Hurry up and go to Perm for a performance at The Perm Tchaikovsky Opera and Ballet Theater. By the way, every year in the summer, one of the most famous events in the world of art takes place here - the International Diaghilev Festival. 

If you have the opportunity to visit it - by all means do it, you will definitely not regret it.

🕰 We strongly advise you to get to the theater at least half an hour before the start of the performance to be able to walk around the theater building. It truly delights with its scope and interiors. Climb the marble stairs, stop by the buffet and, of course, take a photo in the velvet box.
