We do our best to make your purchase as easy and comfortable, as we can, so that you can get you on your way to your unique theatrical experience as quickly as possible. Your purchases on our website are subject to these terms.
BalletBooking.com acts as the agent to various ticket providers, such as theatres (or other venues), theatre troupes, theatre agencies, promoters and secondary market resellers. On our website we do not divide tickets from different providers, thus our website shows that tickets are “available for sale” until at least one of the providers is still able to supply necessary number of tickets of the appropriate category. If tickets for the event are labeled as "available only upon request", this means that at the moment none of the providers does have enough tickets for the performance. Clients can leave a request for such tickets and we will contact them in case tickets are on sale at least from one of the providers.
On our website customers can select tickets of one of the designated ticket categories. We always request the best available seats within the selected category for our customers, but the exact seats are assigned by the ticket providers. If customers prefer specific seats they can inform us of their preferences and we will do our best to suit their needs. Usually tickets are booked in pairs. We will make every effort to put a group of any size as close as possible to each other. Unfortunately we can not guarantee that the last minute bookings will get seats together. Separated location of seats can not be a reason for a claim.
BalletBooking.com accepts different methods of payment. Our standard online payment method is PayPal, it guarantees easy and safe transactions. Using PayPal, you can pay with all the major credit-cards.
You can also make an order and payment by phone. Please call us +7 (812) 645 08 98 and our operators will gladly assist you to make an order and payment by phone.
When booking your ticket, you can choose the currency of the transaction between Rubles, Euros and U.S. Dollars. If your bank card is issued in a currency other than the order currency, your funds will be converted at the rate set by your bank and PayPal. Payments by phone are charged in Russian roubles.
Please, specify the conversion rate in advance. In case of any other costs, please consult the payment systems. All our prices are final and include all the taxes. We do not charge any hidden fees.
We sell tickets on behalf of the venues, theatre and travel agencies, promoters and secondary market resellers, which means we do not set the ticket prices. The price you pay for the ticket might be lower or higher than the face value. You accept that the difference of the price paid and the face value of the tickets can not be reason for any claims. All prices listed on the website are market and are fair at the time of purchase and can be changed without prior notice.
The price of your ticket can be influenced by a number of factors: the period before the performance, the number of tickets left, the popularity of the production, the class of tickets, etc. Under certain circumstanсes, a situation may arise in which the cost of tickets to two neighboring seats will differ by more than twofold. The difference of the price you paid comparing to the price of any other ticket seen anywhere can not be a reason for a claim.
Please, pay your attention, that tickets are generally sold through several distribution points. Unfortunately some of them are not connected online, so after your order we confirm the availability of the ticket of the chosen category and issue you the confirmation. In an unlikely event of not being able to confirm you the ticket you have chosen, we will offer you alternatives or will provide immediate 100% refund of your payment.
Please double check your email before making a payment. If you do not receive a confirmation to your email, or if you experienced problems with connection, errors or service interruption while submitting payment information, if you have mentioned a wrong email, it is your responsibility to confirm with BalletBooking.com that everything is ok with your order. We will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you failed to receive confirmation.
