Not to be missed. read about previous comments about the poor buffe. At least on the day we went there was enough food for everyone.

This was definitely one of the highlights of our visit. Just loved the whole experience. The dancers were just amazing and I would recommend it anytime. The buffet dinner is not really a dinner, but rather just some finger snacks, but we were there for the show, not really to eat, so did not mind at all.

A very exciting performance by the dancers and musicians and an enjoyable buffet consisiting of canapes with champagne, vodka, and soft drinks. However, the grand staircase may prove difficult for some people and there was no lift available. The pre-booked private car transfers were a very good idea as there were no taxis nearby.

I had to wait for approx 15 minutes on the stairs in front of the ticket office's closed door. When my turn eventually came, I handed my voucher to the lady there and she said my booking is not listed. Not until I insisted did she make a phone call to someone and then said nothing to me, but handed me a ticket. I asked her to which way will the performance will be held, because for me the venue seemed so grand. With an indifferent look she replied, "I don't understand." That's funny, because she had been speaking English with me. What didn't she understand?

It says here "with Russian Buffet Dinner". I'm still wondering now where was that "dinner"? Yes, there were refreshments during recess time. Yes, I know, inclusions and exclusions are specified in the details. But even if it were a paid dinner, I didn't see anything like that. Why put something on the title which is actually not the real fact?? Moreover, putting "dinner" along in the title gives the impression that the offered price includes dinner. Exclusions are normally not stated on the title, aren't they??

The show itself was great, worth to see. Nothing is to be regretted about this.

I bought the DVD of the show which was sold during recess hour. I have to say that the recording was poorly made. The sound and editing ruined the actual art. Back home, to those who I showed the DVD, I had ensure them that the real show I watched was way way more beautiful and not boring at all.

The show was great and funny,however, the snack was too simple and not enough for those visitors standing around the table. We need to seek something to fill our stomach after the show.

The show was good although a bit touristy. The Russian Buffet dinner turned out to be some fruit and canap├ęs and the price if buy it at the entrance is much much lower! (1300 rubles)

The folklore show was excellent, but we haven't seen anything of the buffet. There is not time enough to enjoy the buffet. The group is also far to big te eat in 20 minutes. Ar the start of the show there is not a program of the show handed out and you cannot hear or understand the lady who announces the show. If you want to leave the building after the show there is only 1 rotating door that is opened. There is another rotating door and a normal double door, but they were all closed. It seems to me that this is very dangerous in case of an emergency or a fire in the building. The carpets on the floors and stairways were very poor and worn out. That goes for the hall and toilets too. In total the show was excellent but the way it is organized needs a lot of improvement.

Really enjoyed this evening show!! The dancing and singing was great and it was a bit of fun at the same time. The nibbles in the interval was a nice touch also, although the bread was a wee bit stale! The only problem I would say was that we were told that the show started at 19.00 but when we arrived at 18.40, thinking that we were early, the show had already started!! So that was quite annoying as we would have come earlier to make sure we got a better seat. Otherwise a fun evening and located in a beautiful palace.

The show is good and worth to go but the "buffet dinner" is only a refreshment break with snack and wines.

We are giving this 4 Stars because of the Wonderfully Talented and Diversified Cast and the Magnificence of the Palace. The Buffet was a few very thin 1" x 1" pieces of bread with very thin ham / cheese / sausage / caviar, Hardly anything to feed the hundreds of people at the theatre. They did give you Champagne as you entered the building and again with wine , soft drink during the "Buffet Meal" Section. We didn't eat before we went after reading the "Buffet Meal" at intermission, and we each were able to get three very thin pieces that left us so very hungry. So, We say, eat before you go, and thoroughly enjoy the talented performers / costumes and have the champagne.
