The construction of the theatre building began in 1937. It was designed to house the music and drama theatre, but World War II interfered with the intention and the newly erected building was occupied by the Moscow plant Kalibr which produced military equipment. Only 10 years after the end of the war true owners - actors, actresses, musicians, artists - entered the theatre building.
