The Theatre was called so after the legendary cruiser Aurora which became famous on October 25 1917 when after the salvo from this ship the Winter Palace was attacked and the Revolution started. The Aurora Palace ballet hall was created in the middle of the XX century on the bank of the Neva River. The modern building is situated in the historic center of Saint Petersburg near the most famous places of interest. From the hall opens a marvelous view on the Neva River, St Peter and Paul’s fortress, The Winter Palace and the cruiser Aurora that adorns the opposite bank of the Neva River (recently the cruiser has left the place for the restoration). This ship also participated in the War against Japan.
