The Alexander Pushkin State Academic Russian Drama Theatre

The first performances of the Russian Drama Theatre were enjoyed by Kharkovites in 1933 in the building of the Publishers’ Club. The leaders of the theatre were prominent men of theatre M. Petrov, N. Sinelnikov, A. Kramov. In 2003 the building of the Pushkin Theatre was completely restored: the stage was modernised, the foyer and the auditorium were renewed, the new facade was designed. Today this building is one of the best examples of the theatre architecture in Ukraine.

The theatre’s major distinction is its strict adherence to the traditions of Russian realistic art, while its production group is considered one of the best in the country. Today the repertoire of the theatre includes over 20 performances. The most popular with the public are classical performances.
