- This theatre today stands where a previously famous restaurant (the Hermitage) once stood. The restaurant was frequented by artistic types, such as Chekhov, Tchaikovskii (who celebrated his wedding here), Gorkii, and Dostoevskii, who made his famous speech about Pushkin here. The theatre was founded in place of the restaurant in 1917. They're always searching for a new theatrical language or new modes of performance. Productions include dramas, ballets and opera. The theatre's repertoire includes more than 15 plays, most of which are by modern playwrights.
