The Moscow Conservatory, one of the largest and most famous music schools in the world, can be an amazing concert bargain. While tickets to concerts by visiting Russian stars like Anna Netrebko and Dmitry Khvorostovsky in Bolshoi Zal (Great Hall) go for hundreds of dollars, chamber concerts in the Rakhmaninovsky Zal (Rakhmaninov Hall) and even symphony concerts in the Bolshoi Zal can set you back just a few dollars. Seats are often still available minutes before a performance. The Great Hall, which opened in 1901, is better known for its acoustics and organ than for its grandeur. There has been talk for years of the conservatory's dismal shape (you might want to avoid sitting on or directly below the balcony, parts of which are already cordoned off). The latest reports have a major renovation starting in 2009. Tickets can be purchased in the Great Hall's foyer, immediately as you enter, or at the advance counter in the rear. Scalpers tend to be much tamer here than at the Bolshoi Theater—rather than professionals, they're usually destitute music lovers who've come upon an extra ticket, so you buy much gratitude along with your ticket.

Most concerts start at 7 pm.
