Mariinsky II

Located directly next door to the original Mariinsky (and connected by an elevated walkway) this new theater opened in 2013. Boasting 2,000 seats, the technologically advance space was designed in a distinctly contemporary style. Locals have varying opinions on the institution's aesthetics, but the excellent acoustics cannot be argued with. The Mariinsky (I) puts on a different show each night so the second space allows for double the amount of performances, which is a good thing in a city that emphasizes the importance of the performing arts.
