Mikhailovsky Theater
Address: Iskusstv Square, 1
Not long ago this theater was called St. Petersburg Mussorgsky State Academic Opera and Ballet Theater. However, its original name was Mikhailovsky, in honor of Emperor Nicolas I's brother. The permanent troupe of actors appeared only after the Social Revolution. That's when the theater got its own style and aesthetic credo. The theater attracted the audience with its unusual performances, as its actors were always searching for the new ways of performing. On the stage of the theater premieres of the operas by Prokofiev and Shostakovich took place. Famous Meyerhold staged several performances.
