If you are looking to enjoy classical Russian theatre from the likes of Chekhov, Pushkin, Ostrovsky and Gogol the Maly is probably one of the best choices. The fact that there is a slavish attention to tradition and classical production means that (with a little prior knowledge of the general plot) intermediate students of Russian as well as more fluent non-natives can follow the action quite well without the help of subtitles.
Price/Additional InfoAs well as the main stage on Teatralny proezd the Maly Theatre has a second stage at Ul. Bolshaya Ordynka 69, Metro station Dobryninskaya, tel. (+7) 499 237 31 81.
