Information for disabled visitors

Dear Visitors!

We are glad to meet you at performances and events of the Alexandrinsky Theatre.

Please note that our theatre venues – Historical Stage and New stage (TCC “Alexandrinsky”) – are not suitable to receive disabled guests due to their architectural concepts, therefore we kindly ask you to contact our administration in advance regarding all issues of organising theatre visits.

The New stage of the Alexandrinsky Theatre (49A Fontanka River Embankment) is equipped with a specially fitted entrance, an elevator and has all modern facilities.

Tel.: (812) 401-53-49

If, due to any reason, you have not contacted the administration in advance there are special buttons for a quick connection.

NEW STAGE


One of the buttons is placed at the very entrance to the theatre on the side of 49A Fontanka River Embankment. NSK_3124.jpg

Another – near the entrance to the New Stage box offices NSK_3092.jpg

One more button is situated right of the glass lift shaft which you can use to move from the outside to the second floor (to the cloakroom and the stage) or to the third floor (to the café, Media Studio and the bookshop “Poryadok slov”) NSK_3111.jpg

MAIN STAGE

Unfortunately, the historical building of the Alexandrinsky Theatre does not initially possess special facilities for disabled visitors, therefore we kindly ask you to notify us in advance about your visit (2-3 days before the event) and we will certainly help you to plan and organise a comfortable visit of our theatre.
