Alexandrinsky Theatre - the Oldest Russian National Theater

The Alexandrinsky Theatre presented the world the "Woes of Wit", "The Storm", "The Inspector General" and dozens of another great works of Russian literature. The theater was established by order of Empress Elizabeth in 1756, and this is the oldest national theater in Russia. Until the twentieth century it was the main imperial theater, the fate of which was directly affected by monarchs.

Since 1832, the theater named in honor of Alexandra Feodorovna, the wife of Nicholas I, occupies a building designed by Rossi, decorated with columns, statues in the niches and an equestrian sculpture group - Apollo Riding a Chariot. It is known to tourists by the name of "a theater with horses on the facade". The Alexandrinsky Theatre has acquired an important collection of decorations, furniture, costumes, various props, programs and playbills for more than 250 years. Some of this can be seen in the Museum of Russian drama, operating at the theater, which can be visited during the entr'acte.
