Festival Description

The idea to hold an International Festival in Moscow first appeared in 1992. Prior to that this country had seen no festivals of such calibre. The Festival programme features plays that have become prominent events of the recent seasons. The Festival strictly adheres to its own interpretation of the ‘jus primae noctis’: Russian and foreign productions on the program have to be shown in Moscow for the first time. The biennial Festival is held on a non-competitive basis. Among the Festival activities and ‘institutions’ are the Festival press-club, seminars, master-classes, and lectures by celebrities of the theatre.
