The birthday of the 3rd studio of the Moscow Art Theatre
Eugeny Vakhtangov became the head of a drama studio, which brought together students from various Moscow educational institutions, back in 1913. Yet its debut production staged in 1914, failed. Only after several years of work, Vakhtangov Moscow Drama Studio was taken under wing of the Art Theatre and named the 3rd studio of MAT. The first production was “The Miracle of St. Anthony”. The premiere took place on November 13, 1921, and this date was considered the date of birth of the studio, and then of the Vakhtangov Theatre.
