St. Petersburg Maly Drama Theatre on tour

20 December 2010

In the city of Stary Oskol (Belgorod Region) a production of Brothers and Sisters was shown on 16 and 17 December and in Zheleznogorsk (Kursk Region) a play called The Snow Queen was performed on 19 December. “This is the theatre’s great creative mission; to demonstrate its best productions, such as Brothers and Sisters, not abroad but at home, in the small towns of Russia, such as Stary Oskol and Zheleznogorsk,” — said the Deputy Director of the theatre, Nelly Akhmadulina.

This tour has become an extension of the three-year project “Legendary Productions of the Maly Drama Theatre — Theatre of Europe in Russian Towns”, brought to life with the support of the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation. Over the past three years (2007-2009) MDT has performed in seven Russian towns and cities, including Arkhangelsk, Kazan, Stary Oskol, Zheleznogorsk and Novotroitsk, gathering more than 20 thousand viewers.

The St. Petersburg Maly Drama Theatre is one of the most famous theatres, not only in Russia but worldwide. Its permanent Artistic Director, since 1983, has been legendary theatre director and People’s Artist of Russia, Lev Dodin.
