Russian drama theatre named after Mikhail Lermontov

The Mikhail Lermontov Russian drama theater is a carrier of theatrical culture traditions, which comprehends the classical heritage in the light of the spiritual demands of a renewed society, and contributes to the preservation and development of the dramatic culture of the Chechen Republic and the Russian Federation. The state Russian drama theater was founded in 1938. In the year of the 100th anniversary of Mikhail Lermontov's death, the theater was named after a classic of Russian literature.

In June 2012, the new building of the state Russian drama theater named after M. Y. Lermontov was opened. "Knights of the Caucasus mountains" was the first performance played on the new stage.

The theater's auditorium is designed for 500 seats. The stage equipment meets modern international standards: the orchestra pit can be raised and lowered, and the stage is designed so that the farthest spectator seat is only 17 meters from the stage. The theater has a rehearsal hall for 100 seats, modern dressing rooms and a complex of production workshops. There is a monument to Mikhail Lermontov in front of the building.
