Theatre G. Kamal
The Galiasgar Kamal Tatarstan State Academic Theatre was opened on December 22, 1906. The repertoire of the prewar years was rather diversified: world classical and national performances, Tatar dramas and world dramatic works were staged in the theatre. In 1939 the theatre was named after the classic tatar author Galiasgar Kamal.
In 1996 the Galiasgar Kamal Tatarstan State Academic Theatre moved to a new building on the shore of Lake Kaban. The building reminds of a tallship sailing over the water surface. In the hall of the theatre you can find large stained glass windows with views of the lake, balconies for spectators to take a promenade, winter garden with fountains, portrait gallery and sculptures of outstanding theatre figures. The theatre's company goes on tour in Russia, the Baltic countries and the countries of Middle Asia.
