The development of high technologies has made it much easier to buy tickets to Moscow theatres. You no longer have to wait in endless queues to get tickets at a theatre’s box office or to deal with cheesy dealers. Nowadays, the easiest way to buy a ballet ticket is over the Internet.
Every theatre has its own official website where you can use your credit card to buy an e-ticket. Bolshoi Theatre tickets are in high demand and buying them involves some subtleties that are dealt with in a separate article.
In all other cases, go to the What’s On section of the selected theatre’s official website and follow the instructions. A handy tip: if you have never been to this or that theatre before, make sure you find its auditorium seating plan or photographs before buying a ticket. This will help you choose a seat with a good view of the stage.
Before actually going to the theatre, you may find it useful to print out your tickets as entrance to the theatre requires you to show the barcode on your ticket to the ticket scanner.
You can also get your tickets at major ballet ticketing platforms such as ticketland.ru and kassir.ru. It is very important to use the services offered by well-established, verified websites – ticket scams are not uncommon. As a rule, such websites charge you a service fee that is some 10% of the ticket price. Of course, you can also get your ballet ticket at the box office if you have time and if you want to.
As you see, buying a ticket is not that difficult. If you really want to get to the show, you will!
