You¡¯ll enjoy 1.5 hours of music and dancing by the best professional folk ensemble in Russia ¨C Ensemble of song and dancing of the Leningrad Military District! Each show consists of two 40- to 45-minute sections with an intermission of ten to fifteen minutes for champagne and some snacks. The level of musical accomplishment is very high and stronger than comparable other military ensembles. With their authentic costumes, dance and songs, this amazing show brings Russian culture and folk music to life.

The Song and Dance Ensemble dates to 1929. In those days it consisted of 10 enthusiasts - fans of choral singing. From the first day ensemble has become original creative laboratory of a song, especially army repertoire. Nowadays the Song and Dance Ensemble represent the greatest professional folk performers in Russia. The ensemble has created more than 900 amazing songs and 70 fantastic dancing.

The core performers are the male chorus and orchestra, whose roots trace back to the first official Russian armed forces choir of the Red Army Choir, created early in World War II to help inspire the country's morale. Although a dance ensemble was added to the choir, the chorus remains the essential component. A mix of patriotic songs, marches, folk songs and operatic selections with a few orchestral chestnuts are amazing. The chorus is all-male, although there are female soloists. The choir's powerful, patriotic songs, especially those by soloists, draw genuine applause, not polite clapping.

Concert performances on Canary Islands, Madrid, Barcelona, Grandana, Valencia, Zaragosa, Bilbao, Milan, Rome, Bologna, Parma, Hague, Amsterdam, Warsaw, Lisbon, Oslo, Helsinki, and Stockholm already have won hearts of spectators.

Without any doubt the best place to see the Folk-show in St Petersburg is the astonishing House of Officers in the historical centre of St. Petersburg, a stately venue that boasts Art Nouveau interior decor. It is a cultural educational establishment of the Russian Federation Ministry of Defence, and professional military servicemen's club, founded in 1918 as the Red Army House. The fabulous hall, known for high quality performances, was especially built for concerts and features a comfortable atmosphere.

Officers' House had turned into a highly fashionable area, the favorite place of promenade in St. Petersburg for best officers of Russian Empire. Its official name changed to Officers' House in 1972. In the 1920s, the Officers' House carried out large-scale educational work among Red Army soldiers; during the Great Patriotic War it served as a base for a number of special military preparatory courses, front-line concert and propaganda brigades. One of the main peculiarities of the Officers' House is its special "homy" atmosphere. There were inspired and arranged parties, balls, dinners ¨C and never missed the opportunity of pleasing its guests with exquisite cuisine, rare wines and joyful performance.
