Dealer Notes
The Nemirovich-Danchenko Music Theatre (set up in 1919 as a Studio of the Moscow Art Theatre). In 1941 it merged with the Stanislavsky Opera Theatre to form the "Stanislavski & Nemirovich-Danchenko Theatre." Nemirovich-Danchenko created the Moscow Art Theatre's acting and directing style, known for "actors ensemble" and its "atmosphere". Because of his directorial and production skills, the Moscow Art Theatre was considered, at the time, the best theatre in the Soviet Union.
