"Moscow Operetta" Musical Theatre
February 17, 2017 13:17

It is one of the best Russian theaters specializing in operettas and musicals. Classical performances are found side by side with modern musical shows in today's repertoire of Moscow Operetta.
The theatre Moscow Operetta founded in 1927 has attracted the audience with the rich variety of its repertoire ever since. Along with classical operettas by Offenbach, Strauss, and Kalman it has played music by Dunayevsky, Shostakovich, Kabalevsky and other talented Soviet composers, lots of whom wrote their works specially for the operetta theater. The troupe has also been the theatre's crown jewel: in various years Sergey Anikeev, Vladimir Alchevsky, Nikolay Ruban, Tatiana Shmyga, Svetlana Varguzova, Grigory Vasilyev, Elena Zaitseva, Vitor Maron, Nikita Kashira and other prominent singers of the epoch performed on its stage.
Today Moscow Operetta remains true to this principle, combining classical and the latest musical performances. Over the past 15 years several musicals have been staged here to become events o the all-Russian scale: Metro, Notre Dame de Paris, Romeo and Juliet... However, original Russian musicals are a success here along with European ones.
For example, the flagship project of Moscow Operetta - the musical Count Orlov about the love story of Count Alexei Orlov and young beauty Elizabeth has won the most prestigious national theater awards. Another sensational musical - Monte Christo - has broken all records in the duration of its performance life in Russia.
In 2014 the Moscow Operetta introduced the public to Jane Eyre, the first ever musical based on the classic novel by Charlotte Bronte.
As for lovers of classical operetta, they will find here Silva, Fanfan la Tulipe, and The Merry Widow.
The theatre Moscow Operetta is located at the address: 6, Bolshaya Dmitrovka Street, next to Teatralnaya metro station, Moscow.
