Feel the spirit of Russia in this beautiful folkloric show that will not leave a single person unaffected!

If you are lucky, you might even be picked up to join the dancers on stage!

The folk show is represented with 3 professional folk groups: 

1) “Peters Quartet” vocal quartet. Classical performance of folk songs, lyrical romances and Russian Orthodox hymns.

2) "Maidan" Cossack song-and-dance group. The name of the group gets its origin from the place where all Cossacks used to assemble in older times and where decisions were made "by the whole world". The group skilfully reproduces Cossack songs and dances in their original form.

3) «Stars of St.Petersburg» dance group. The dancers have graduated from leading schools of choreography in Russia. The repertoire covers lyrical dances of the Russian North, energetic dances of the Cossacks from the Don and Voronezh, dancing miniatures of the Urals and Siberia with their subtle humour. Spectators of all ages and tastes will be able to appreciate not only the ability of the performers to bring Russian national colour to the stage, but also their highest skills, complexity of acrobatic feats and breath-taking leaps.

Duration of the show: 1.5 hours (two parts of 45 minutes)

Drinks and light snacks are served during the interval. Try a bite of canapés with red caviar, ham, Russian Salami, various cheeses; enjoy a shot of Russian vodka, a glass of champagne, red wine, or stay healthy with mineral water, juice and assorted soft drinks.

Our driver picked us up from our ship right on time and it was a fairly short drive to the theater in the beautiful Nikolayevsky Palace. The quartet of male singers in the beginning had outstanding voices and were good showmen as well, The musician, singers and dancers all did a great job and the costumes were wonderful. During intermission, a lovely array of fruits and snacks and beverages was available. We had a wonderful time.

DVARYETS TRUDA (nikolayevski palace) was difficult to find. I think it is annoying to have to go there twice, once for the exchange of the online ticket to a "normal" one. BUT!!! The palace itself, the welcoming music and shampagne gave everyone a sweet feeling. There are no words... at least in my english vocabulary to describe what we saw. Excellent singers, professional orchestra AND what the dancers did was very near perfection. Reminded me of good old times, when music and especially ballet dancers in the USSR were on the top of the world...perfect in rythm, in coordination, in acrobatic or classic choreography, in just everything. I am afraid I will not say the same for the bolshoi ballet I saw in Moscow... incredibly disappointing, no rythm and coordination of dancers (even in groups of 3). Anyway, the folklore SHOW was very near perfection, not only as a music shaw, but also as an acting art. Some of the old songs brought me tears, reminding me times I was a student in Prague. All the best to all of them.

We had looked for this show on the company link and many other places . The price was quite high . We were also not clear on content to expect. The focus was on hotel pickup and drop and fdiscount on a high priced dinner. We didn't want any of that clubbed . We preferred a clean offer for show. Some site offered discount but catch was only physical tickets delivered to hotel . No option of e voucher or exchange at counter
However this La Vacanza Travel deal was very tempting. Offer seemed a big discount . Facility of e voucher to exchange at counter . The process was clean, safe and convenient. No hassles at all.
Coming to the theatre it is a grab your seat . No numbers . So go as early to getest seats . It is a small venue inside so you are not very far from screen . We were first in queue and got first row centre seats.
The show itself was fabulous. Music and dance and costumes wow . Involved crowd in dance and fun . Total entertainment. Would highly recommend not to skip it .

And book through La Vacanza Travel for good safe deal

We thoroughly enjoyed this show. It was a very pleasant way to spend an evening. There was a drink on arrival and nibbles in the interval. The show itself was of a very high standard- a group of four male singers who sang together very well, groups of dancers and singers who gave an excellent performance. We would thoroughly recommend it.
