Abstract

The article is devoted to the history of the provincial theatres’ architecture of the Russian Empire in the second half of the XIX century. Author shows that the development of urban culture and interest in theatrical art lead to the construction of theatre buildings in provincial and district towns. Theatres became a material expression of high economic status of the city and a symbol of the development of spiritual culture of the citizens. A comparative analysis of European and Russian theatre buildings allows us to conclude that the preference was given to similar volumetric, spatial and stylistic concepts in the theatre architecture of this period. Meanwhile, the birth of the national Russian theatre which coincided with the increased attention to the forms of national architecture determined Russian designers and customers to turn to the Russian style in theatre architecture.
