Chekhov Moscow Art Theatre
The Chekhov Moscow Art Theatre was created in 1897 by two well-known figures of Russian theatre: Konstantin Stanislavski and Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko. They were both, among other things, stage directors.
This theatre is famous for working with Anton Chekhov. His production “The Seagull” was very successful in this theatre. “Uncle Vania”, “Three Sisters” and “the Cherry Orchard” were created in this theatre. Later the theatre chose the seagull as its emblem.
During the USSR, the theatre showed many plays called “socialists”.
Nowadays it still is one of the main stages of Moscow. It also hosts a school-studio and a museum.
