ABOUT THE THEATRE
The Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko
Moscow Academic Music Theatre
is one of the leading music theatres of Russia
In December 2018 the Moscow State Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre celebrated its 100th anniversary. Named after two great reformers of theatre art, it goes back to the season of 1918/19 when the Bolshoi Theatre Opera Studio under the direction of Konstantin Stanislavsky and the Music Studio of Moscow Art Theatre under the leadership of Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko appeared. In 1926 these two companies received the status of state theatres and were given a building on Bolshaya Dmitrovka, 17. In 1941 the two theatres united, being closely related in their creative principles. At this point the ballet company led by Victorina Krieger joined the company of Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko.
The Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre became internationally acclaimed after its Paris tour of 1956. It became one of the first Soviet theatres that performed in the Western Europe during the postwar years. Collaboration of the Theatre and the Komische Oper Berlin left a mark in the history of theatre art. In the XXI century at this Theatre worked Mark Minkowski and Olivier Py, Alberto Zedda and Peter Stein, Christopher Alden and Vladimir Jurowski, Alexander Lazarev and John Neumeier, Ezio Frigerio and Jiří Kylián, Alexander Ekman and Andrey Kaydanovskiy etc.
