On 14 December 1922 started the first theatrical season of the Russian Drama Theater with the representation of Vasilisa Melentyeva based on the play by Alexander Ostrovsky. The first director of the theatre was I. A. Sloboda (Kukarnikov). In 1935, the theatre was directed by E. A. Tokmakov. From 1979 to 1989, as chief director worked M. Zilberman, then B. I.
