This mansion from the 18th century was the home of opera singer Feodor Chaliapin (1873-1938). Also known for his talents as an actor and draftsman, he lived in that town house for twelve years before going abroad in 1921.
Visitors can see the artist’s study as well as wife Italian ballerina dancer Yulia Tornagi’s boudoir. The collection is made of personal objects of the singer, antique furniture and famous paintings. The first floor retraces the work of Feodor Chaliapin.
Nowadays, the house has become an important cultural scene where musicals and plays are often shown.
