About the Artists

The Maly Drama Theatre was established in Saint Petersburg in 1944, a time when many theatres were evacuated from the city. Founded by the Regional Executive Committee, the small company performed in the region’s towns and villages until the mid-70s when current artistic director Lev Dodin and other well-known artists joined the company. Dodin first staged The Robber by Karel Chapek in 1975; in 1983, he became Artistic Director. Maly Drama Theatre is currently regarded as one of the top theatres in Russia and has garnered worldwide acclaim for its inventive productions.
