"Am I Pushkin?" - you must have said this phrase more than once, referring to your incompetence in the sphere of the question posed by your opponent. It is quite possible that Alexander Sergeevich would have been saved before an intellectual riddle, however, the greatness of his writing genius, in the minds of the people, makes him an omniscient erudite. Here is such a memorial monument built himself a poet. We can often hear with you that Pushkin is our everything! One can agree with this, one can deny it, but it is impossible to overestimate the importance of Alexander Sergeyevich for our culture. In addition to the “miraculous monument”, there are many architectural monuments created by grateful descendants, both in our country and abroad. Pskov also did not stand aside and for the anniversary Alexander Sergeevich Pushkin, received in the ancient city a theater in his honor.
Construction of the scene began in 1899 in honor of the 100th anniversary of his birth. Funds collected through donations of citizens. Until the 1920s, the theater had no permanent troupe, so the actors changed from season to season. The first building was destroyed during the Great Patriotic War, but in 1946 it was restored and theatrical productions were resumed. In the period 2012–2014 It has undergone a large-scale restoration.
The theater has already jumped over its hundreds of years and is a witness to the last three centuries of humanity, with their difficulties, drama, happiness and suffering. In its past time, the theater has seen many performances and match its name, invited artists to its stage, whose names are in themselves eras, among them were Fyodor Chaliapin, Isadora Duncan, and many others. The theater is still waiting for a lot of glorious performances, thanks to which it will fill its skyline with new stars, watch the posters.
