Saint Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Music

https://theatremuseum.ru

Short entertaining stories by the staff of the Museum of Theater and Music about the key exhibits, exhibitions and figures of permanent exhibitions - famous actors and musicians.

All the videos can be found in a special playlist on the museum's YouTube channel.

Project reveals the most surprising facts: what pets Fyodor Chaliapin had and what was his plan in case of a voice loss; how Matilda Kshesinskaya laboured to make 32 fouettes; why Rimsky-Korsakov didn't compose music at the piano but at his desk; why Sergei Diaghilev was fired from the Imperial Theaters.

Non-Museum Stories are told by the museum staff — curators, theater critics and historians. Episodes are also devoted to the museum exhibits and collections: musical instruments, household items and wardrobe, theater props and much more.
