History[edit]

The Chuvash State Drama Theater was founded in Kazan in 1918 by theater director Ioakim Stepanovič Maksimov-Koškinskij.[1]

In 1920, the theater company moved to Cheboksary and began showing plays of Chuvash playwrights and translations of Russian classics. Performances played in the Chuvash language.

PN Osipov served as theater director from 1927 to 1939. Original art by theater artists grew stronger from year to year. During this period, the theater collaborated with the best Chuvash playwrights, among them F. Pavlov, I. Maximov-Koshkinsky, N. Iseman, M. Trubina, Agachi L., A. Eskhel A. Colgan, J. Ukhsay, V. Alager, L. Rodionov, V. Ukhli, N. Terentiev.

In 1933, the theater was awarded the title of Academic, and in 1959 it received the name of classic poetry Chuvash Ivanov.

In 1947, the theater came GITIS's graduates (Chuvash studio, Tarkhanov's cours).

The theater won the State Prize of the Russian Federation in 2003.[2]
