The Romen Theatre - Moscow
This text will be replaced
Mundi Romani visited Moscow in September 2010 to attend the celebration of the 80th yearly opening of the Romen Theater. The Romen Theater is the only Romani stone theater in the world. Its imposing structure stands out as a testimony to the place of Romani art and traditions in Russian culture. From the moment of its foundation in 1931, it has been a centre of attraction for Romani artists in Russia and for huge audiences of Russians of all ages. We were introduced to the theater by its star director, its singers, dancers and musicians, and Nadesda Demeter, a member of a famous family that played a key role in the artistic development of the theater. Follow us backstage and discover the musical magic of Russia’s Romani culture.
