La Bohème

On our last night in St. Petersburg we went to the Mariinsky I to see the opera La Bohème. The Mariinsky I was beautiful and so drastically different from the Mariinsky II. The Mariinsky I is much more traditional and the stage, balcony seats and tsar’s box are lined with gold. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Opera and the music was extremely powerful. I have been so lucky that I have seen a Russian Ballet in the Mariinsky II and the Opera in the Mariinsky I.
