Theatre of Musical Comedy playbill


Theatre of Musical Comedy (Palace Theatre)

The Theatre of Musical Comedy was founded in 1929. The theatre had originally been a mansion, then in the 1910s it was reconstructed by I.L. Balbashevsky to house the Palace operetta theatre. Having classics as a base of repertoire, the theatre was persistent in creating the Soviet operetta genre. The theatre may be called as a test laboratory of this genre. I. Dunayevskiy may also be named as the "Founder of Soviet Operetta". He was first to introduce the mass songs into the operetta which helped to reform the genre and take it away from the vaudeville-style conventionalism and melodramatic romance.

The theatre staged the shows which became the milestones in "Soviet Classics" genre development. They were: "The Golden Valley" and "The Road to Happiness" by I. Dunayevskiy, "The Wedding in Malinovka" by B. Aleksandrov, "Girls' Hurly-Burly" and "Chanita's Kiss" by Yu. Milyutin, "The Sorochintsy Fair" by A. Ryabov, "Akulina" by I. Kovner etc.

During the World War II the Musical Comedy Theatre was the only theatrical company which didn't interrupt its work during all 900 days of the siege. 20 premieres and remakes were staged at those days. 1 300 000 spectators came to the shows. No replacements were made. There always were two companies: if some actor didn't come and reported being ill then it usually meant his death. The theatre was constantly sold out. The tickets used to be resold for a daily ration of bread. Almost all the soloists gave more than 1000 free concerts at the front line, at the hospitals and industrial facilities.

During 70 years of it's existence the theatre had times of creative rise, success and bold experiments. There were times of crisis as well. Every step was fruitful. Since 1995 the theatre is led by the manager, Russia's Merited Culture Worker V. V. Pashkov and the artistic director, Russia's Merited Art Worker,
Member of the Russian Television Academy, People's artist of Russia A. A. Belinskiy. Today the theatre relies more on classical and modern operetta as well as on musicals.
