The spectacular performances by the Kremlin Ballet Company suffer from this unfortunate venue, an enormous hall built to house Communist Party congresses. The sleek but bleak 1970s-era design kills most of the beauty and wonder projected by the performers. Still, the performances are strong and this is a fine place to come if you can't afford tickets anywhere else. Many organized tours include shows here. If you're on your own, tickets cost as little as 65 rubles, but it's worth paying a bit more to get centrally located seats instead of seats on the very-far-away balcony or at the fringes. Concentrate on the dancing, not the surroundings, which include 6,000 seats equipped with electronic voting buttons and earphones for simultaneous interpretation of political congresses.
