The capital of Russia is definitely one of the world’s biggest cultural centres. Modern Moscow is literally full of different venues dedicated to the art of music. Here you may find all kinds of entertainment, from modern techno and electronica concerts to classical orchestra, opera, ballet, symphony, modern dance and traditional choir events. A trip to Moscow isn’t complete without a show, here are the best places to see one.

1. The Tchaikovsky Concert Hall

Concert Hall

The Tchaikovsky Concert Hall is the official headquarters of the famous Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s the historical classical music hall of Moscow. Russia’s leading folk artists, orchestras, dancers and opera singers perform here annually. Not only that, world-famous international stars perform here as well. Tchaikovsky Hall was and remains the most influential music centre in Russia.

2. The Tchaikovsky Conservatory of Moscow


Just like the hall, the conservatory was named after the great Russian composer and music professor, Tchaikovsky, and it’s considered to be one of the best music conservatories in the world. Yet it’s the second smallest building in the neighbourhood. The main difference between the hall and the conservatory is that people usually come here for acoustic orchestra concerts and to admire the classical Russian decorations. It goes without saying that the quality of acoustics in the venue is extremely high.

3. Barvikha Luxury Village Concert Hall

Building, Concert Hall

This hall is the creative genius of famous Italian architect, Antonio Citterio. It is a truly outstanding concert venue located just 8 km (5 miles) from Moscow, in Barvikha Luxury Village. The building is made of glass and wood and is equipped with modern digital technical equipment inside. It can even host multiple events at once (rare for Russian concert venues). The space is very comfortable and adaptable. There are 750 seats inside and the construction of the rows is exceptional: you can see the stage equally well from any seat in the house.

5. Izvestiya Hall - Moscow

Concert Hall

Izvestiya Hall is considered to be one of the most popular music and event venues in the city, located in the Tverskaya neighbourhood, near the Pushkin monument. This special place hosts a variety of events that you wouldn’t find at venues like the Tchaikovsky Concert Hall. Here you’ll find solo concerts, electronica music festivals, and more.
