Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Musical Theater
November 17, 2016 14:33


One of the leading musical theaters of Russia, it collaborates with famous European stage directors and choreographers, holds modern dance festivals, actively experiments and looks for new forms.
K. S. Stanislavsky and Vl. I. Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Musical Theater (MAMT) emerged in 1941 as a result of two troupes merging: the opera studio of the Bolshoi Theatre and the music studio of the Moscow Art Theatre. The first of them was founded by Konstantin Stanislavsky, and the second one by Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko: the founders' surnames were enshrined in the name of the theater. Each of the troupes had its own methods and traditions as well as repertoire, but there was a common feature: both of them relied on those principles of realism, which altogether became world famous as the Stanislavskian Acting Method.
Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko headed the new theater troupe since Konstantin Stanislavsky had already died by then. In 1951 he passed  the post onto his student Leonid Baratov. It is noteworthy that the MAMT was the only Moscow theater did not go to evacuation, but continued working and even giving premieres during World War II.
From the very beginning the MAMT proved to be an innovative, original, and non-standard theatre. It was an "experimental laboratory" for creating new operas and ballets.
It was this theatre that Tikhon Khrennikov, Dmitry Kabalevsky and other leading composers of the epoch contributed their new works to. It was here that the unprecedented opera epic War and Peace set to Sergey Prokofiev's music was staged, and Dmitry Shostakovich' opera Katerina Izmailova, which had been banned for many years, premiered. Back in the Soviet era the theater already collaborated with the western stage directors and ballet masters (a most singular phenomenon for a Soviet theater!).
Till date the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Musical Theater remains to be one of the most innovative and original musical theaters of Moscow. The troupe cocreates stage productions with the most famous European choreographers and directors (for example, John Normeyer who arrived in Russia specially for staging The Seagull in the MAMT). It happens to be the first Russian theatre to stage operas of the French avant-gardists and introduce ballets of foregin authors (Nacho Duato, Jiri Kylian, Jorma Elo, etc) not yet well-known in this country.
One of the theater's main projects is the modern dance festival DanceInversion that brings together new performances by the best troupes from all over the world.
Upon its reconstruction of 2006 the theater's building, which once housed the Moscow Merchant Club, became one of the most modern theatrical centres of Europe. Performances run on two platforms: in the main hall with 1100 seats and the small transformable with 200 seats. In addition to it, the theatre has a Music Parlour, where chamber music concerts take place.
The MAMT is located at the address 17, Bolshaya Dmitrovka Street, near Pushkinskaya, Tverskaya and Chekhovskaya metro stations, Moscow.
