Moscow Children’s Musical Theatre

Theatre in Arbat & Khamovniki

Founded by theatre legend Natalya Sats in 1965, this was the country’s first children’s theatre. Sats, apparently, was the inspiration for Prokofiev’s famous rendition of Peter and the Wolf, which is still among the most popular performances here. But all shows are entertaining and educational, with actors appearing in costume beforehand to talk with the children.
