Theatre Theory * This is the only page on "Russian Theatre," but you can find many Russian Theatre related pages: drama, acting and directing. I do not approach theatre (Russian or American) from the historical POV (you can get it from many other sources), only from the working point of view. AA
teatr.us : Notes (about Russian Theatre in Russian): 20 век -- столетие театральное. Весь мир стал театром. Недаром постмодернизм подражателен. Театр вышел из "церковных" рамок, стал зрелищем повсеместным (тотальным). "Система Станиславского" должна быть рассмотрена шире -- театрализация жизни.... (Book of Spectator)
I hope I will have time to work on Hamlet2002 -- the crying mask, nothing is done for months! (years)
I do not teach Russian Theatre and this page is a footnote for directing, acting, drama classes. The photo and images are lost while transfering pages from one server to another and I have no time to restore them from the archives. There are other "Russian" pages, but mostly my recent playwriting in Russian; see Russian Pages directory.
Logic of placing some texts on my Russian pages? An impulse. Something I want to save (for myself). This page is not a source... I am putting new links anymore; you have to keep them updated, but so many died, dying and will die -- you better make money on your sites, treat it as business, if you collect the links. The list on this page isn't updated for two years!
If I will make this deal with the Moscow Art Theatre School in the Summer (2002) and, if I can get the communication grant from my university, I will set some Russian Resources from MXAT on the web (I suspect, first, in Russian in Moscow, on their server; the translation is another project all together). It would be nice to make available the archives of the Art Theatre on the web, but this task must be for theatre historian, not me. I spoke with Smelyansky and we at least can start it. How long will take to finish? He said that only now they finally publish complete Stanislavsky (32 books in Russian), you do the math.
Maybe Moscow government and/or Ministry of Culture can throw some money for this project, but without the western funds it won't go far. Besides, web-publishing (the cheapest) in English will benefit us, not the Russians. Well, American Theatre is far behind other field in being cyber-friendly; too many things here are still not online. Anyway, as kids say, we can start something....
There are at least four published translations of DAYS OF THE TURBINS. The most readily available are in THE EARLY PLAYS OF MIKHAIL BULGAKOV, tr. Carl & Ellendea Proffer (Indiana UP, 1972) and under the title THE WHITE GUARD, tr.

In 1756 Elizaveta Petrovna, daughter of Peter the Great, issued an edict establishing the State Russian Theatre in St.Petersburg. The company consisted mostly of amateur actors from Yaroslavl' headed by the legendary Fyodor Volkov.
The Russian Theatre after Stalin by Anatoly Smeliansky Cambridge University Press, 1999 Hardback. ISBN: 0521582350
This is the first book to explore the world of the theatre in Russia after Stalin. Through his work at the Moscow Art Theatre, Anatoly Smeliansky is in a key position to analyse contemporary events on the Russian stage and he combines this first-hand knowledge with valuable archival material, some published here for the first time, to tell a fascinating and important story. Smeliansky chronicles developments from 1953 and the rise of a new Soviet theatre, and moves through the next four decades, highlighting the social and political events which shaped Russian drama and performance. The book also focuses on major directors and practitioners, including Yury Lyubimov, Oleg Yefremov, and Lev Dodin, among others, and contains a chronology, glossary of names, and informative illustrations.
Russian and Soviet Theatre Tradition and the Avant-Garde * Konstantin Rudnitsky
In the interval between the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917 the Russian theatre of the future was already an obsessive preoccupation for writers, directors and designers. Lenin proclaimed that theatre had to be ‘greater than a spectacle’, and directors, designers, playwrights and artists rose to the challenge, creating an aesthetic revolution which is still inspiring today’s dramatists.
Russian and Soviet Theatre documents the extraordinary developments of the years from about 1900 to 1932. It presents an astonishing wealth of previously unpublished material, including over 450 illustrations showing performances directed by Meyerhold, Eisenstein and Mikhail Chekhov, with designs by some of the greatest modernist artists of the age, including Malevich, Larionov and Rodchenko. Visually exhilarating and critically perceptive, this book is a unique record of this formative period in modern theatre.
Theatre and Performance Studies at the
Moscow Art Theatre Moscow, Russia
June 6 - July 2 or 3, 2005
On Wednesday, August 29, the oldest Russian theatre - Maly Theatre in Moscow - will open its 246th season traditionally with the play "Fyodor the Tsar." As early as September 5th, the Maly company will leave for a tour in Yaroslavl, Volga region. The Maly company will be hosted by the Fyodor Volkov Theatre and will show six shows, including "Kabale und Liebe," "The Wolves and The Sheep," and "Uncle Vanya." Artistic Director of the theatre Yury Solomin said at the Tuesday meeting of the company that several new performances were planned for this season. The theatre will stage "The Abyss," "The Bankrupt," and "Love's Labour Lost." A well-known director Sergei Zhenovach will stage a show based on one of Russian classical plays. Vaudeville is also considered as a possibility.
The Maly Theatre will show Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya" and "The Cherry Orchard" to French audience. In October, the theatre will be hosted by a Versailles Montasier theatre.
Nor do I have most recent Russian playwrights (Sorokin play).
I will try to have bilingual texts (first time) for Chekhov's one-acts (Fall 2005) + his letters (see Chekhov Pages in script.vtheatre.net
Nothing about Russian actors (Vladimir Visotsky, left, linked to Taganka Theatre)
Anatoly March 2005
Russian theatre specializing in theatrical naturalism.
It was founded in 1898 by Konstantin Stanislavsky (as artistic director) and Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko (administrative director) with the goal of replacing old-fashioned histrionic acting and heavy-handed staging with a simpler and truer style. It opened with Aleksey Tolstoy's Tsar Fyodor Ioannovich and won its first major success with Anton Chekhov's The Seagull. Along with other plays by Chekhov, the theatre mounted new works by writers such as Maksim Gorky and Maurice Maeterlinck. Its company received acclaim on European and U.S. tours in 1922 and influenced later theatrical development worldwide. Since 1939 it has been known as the Moscow Academic Art Theatre.
Moscow Art Theatre: 100 years
Pre-publication version of the "Marquee" column to be published in the Moscow Times Oct. 30, 1998. Any and all quotations of, or references to, this article must cite John Freedman.
Oleg Yefremov, the artistic director of the Chekhov Art Theater, opened the Moscow Art Theater's 100th anniversary celebrations on Monday declaring that the day was "wonderful, difficult, happy and tragic." Over the next four and a half hours of a rambling concert that was broadcast nationally on ORT, all of those definitions fell into place. Wonderful was Yury Lyubimov's introduction of Vsevolod Meyerhold's granddaughter Maria Valentei-Meyerhold and Yevgeny Samoilov, an actor who in the 1930s performed for Meyerhold, one of the greatest "sons" of the Moscow Art Theater. Happy was the sight of Konstantin Raikin at center stage listening to a tape recording of his father, the great comic Arkady Raikin, delivering a hilarious greeting at the Art Theater's 75th anniversary in 1973. As for difficult and tragic, there was enough in this chaotic, often rank amateur evening to have us shaking our heads and shedding tears until the next centennial arrives.
The iron-clad etiquette of Russian theater dictates that we
ignore publicly certain situations that in private everyone knows,
ridicules and laments. It should come as little surprise that one such topic is the problem of alcoholism, the scourge of many a Russian playhouse and of the Moscow Art Theater.
Throughout the congratulatory sketches performed by
approximately 25 guest theaters and organizations, the theme of
drunkenness prevailed. Skits about soused stagehands, ticket-takers and actors recurred so often it was often impossible to tell whether the theater was being toasted on its anniversary or being pickled to be preserved in a jar.
Yefremov, one of the finest actors of his generation and a
notorious drinker, began the evening tipsy and became increasingly so as the evening progressed. The final image of the broadcast was Oleg Tabakov, whom some consider the heir apparent to the leadership of the Chekhov Art Theater, handing to Yefremov what appeared to be a five-liter goblet of champagne.
Through it all, precious little was said about the Art
Theater's founders Konstantin Stanislavsky and Vladimir
Nemirovich-Danchenko, its "founding playwright" Anton Chekhov or the
many great actors who embodied the glory of one of the theater that is perhaps the most influential in history. Is anything left of that once great theater? Yes, in its name, its photos and its history.
