Moscow Theater “Workshop of P. N. Fomenko”

The Moscow Theater “Workshop of P. N. Fomenko” is a Moscow theater founded by Pyotr Naumovich Fomenko in 1993.

The new multi-level theater building is located on the high slope of the Moskva River. On the roof of the building there is a lawn and a flower garden. The building is clad in natural stone using aluminum and steel panels. The interior of the theater was equipped according to the requirements of Pyotr Fomenko himself.

The theater has two stages and two halls for 450 and 150 seats. The Great Hall is a classical theater with boxes, stalls and an amphitheatre. The transformable proscenium allows you to arrange an orchestra pit or increase its depth so that the action of the performance can take place directly in the hall. In the two-tiered room of the small hall, a complex of lifting and lowering mechanisms and transformable shields are installed, with the help of which you can not only change the dimensions and proportions of the hall, but also open it to the outside space – to the embankment and the panorama of Moscow International Business Center.

In total, over the years of the theater’s existence, 50 performances have been created, and at the moment the repertoire includes 34.
