On December 19th, Maly Theatre has finally raised its curtain at the renovated main stage, for the first time in two years. According to tradition, it reopened with Alexander Griboyedov's play “Woe from Wit” staged by Sergei Zhenovach, the production which is on since 2000. The main role is played by the theatre's artistic director, People's Artist of the USSR, Yuri Solomin. The opening night was attended by the Minister of Culture of Russia, Vladimir Medinsky.
Maly Theatre’s main stage was closed for renovation in the spring of 2014. It was the first time in the building’s history that such extensive work had been done to repair the
building’s facade with new buildings for art exhibitions and storage rooms for stage scenery, decorations and costumes added. The work has been completed almost 2 years ahead of the plan.
The temporary separation is over and we are delighted to welcome the audience back to our house!
