St.Petersburg conservatoire was established in 1783. Among its professors and graduates were such prominent Russian composers as Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Shostakovich, Rahmaninov, Stravinsky et ali. You can enjoy their operas and ballets in famous Mariinsky and Mikhailovsky theaters and in several other  concert halls located in historical palaces. You can listen also to operas by world known western composers like Bizet, Wagner, Verdi et ali performed in the language of original or in Russian.

St.Petersburg Philharmonic  society was established in 1802 being first in Europe. The present hall on Square of Arts with wonderful acoustics was opened in 1839. Since that time many renowned musicians were performing here (List, Vagner, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and many others).
