Odesa rightly considers the Russian Theater one of its main attractions. The majestic Temple of Melpomene is located in the city center on the Hrets'ka St, 48. Hiking, bus excursions – everything leads the Odesa citizen and guest of the Black Sea Pearl to a building stubbornly reminding: it is always important to find time for the soul. Well, how can you resist and not open the door to the world of high art?

Today, Odesa Academic Russian Drama Theater delights with the richness of its repertoire. Famous actors shine on the stage and provincial theater troupes perform with bright premieres. But the theater, originally built in 1875 by the merchant Velikanov, was intended for performances of the drama troupe of the Nikolai Miloslavsky, popular in the city. In the future, luminaries Maria Zankovetskaya, Panas Saksagansky, Mark Kropyvnytsky took to the stage.

The Russian Drama Theater of Odesa is also the oldest theater in the south of Ukraine. The last reconstruction took place in 2003. And in December 2009, the institution received the status of an academic. So the design, planned by the creators as temporary, took root and became an integral part of the city. Today the team has more than 15 high awards at prestigious international festivals in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Poland. This is evidence that Odesa Theater of Russian Drama is not without reason called its pride.

The theater audience notes the special atmosphere of home comfort. The Directorate is actively working to update the cast and directors. The artistic director is Elena Shramko (Pushkina). The best forces are attracted to give the audience moments of joy and admiration. The highest skill and professionalism are undeniable trump cards in the sleeve of the team.
