Moscow Academic Musical Theater, named after K.S. Stanislavski and Vl. I. Nemirovich-Danchenko, is an opera and ballet theater in the Tverskoy district of Moscow.
The Stanislavski and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Music Theatre was founded in 1941 when two companies directed by the legendary reformers of 20th-century theater — Konstantin Stanislavski and Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko — merged: the Stanislavsky Opera Theatre (established at the end of 1918 as an Opera Studio of the Bolshoi Theatre) and the Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre (set up in 1919 as a Studio of the Moscow Art Theatre).
The ballet company entered the theater as a part of Nemirovich-Danchenko’s troupe. It was the former company of the Moscow Art Ballet, established in 1929 by Victorina Krieger, the ballerina of the Bolshoi Theatre. She was an Artistic Director and one of the principal dancers of the Moscow Art Ballet. Soon after Stanislavski’s death, Nemirovich-Danchenko took charge of all the companies (Vsevolod Meyerhold, invited by Stanislavski to work for his theater, was arrested in 1939, and no other stage director could prove equal to Nemirovich-Danchenko). Then the theater was given its present name.
