NON-MUSEUM STORIES

Saint Petersburg State Museum of Theatre and Music

Сайт проекта

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.
