As decreed by the President of the Russian Federation, non-working days are extended through May 31. This means there will be no performances, the theatre's box office will be closed.

Please take care of yourself, stay at home, and join our online broadcasts!

Kirill Vytoptov


Kirill Vytoptov graduated from RATI-GITIS and is a staff director at the Sovremennik Theatre. He teaches directing in Oleg Kudryashov's course at RATI-GITIS, and performs as an actor with Liquid Theatre and the Theatre of Nations.
Vytoptov's productions seek to develop the Russian tradition of psychological theatre in a contemporary context. He is particularly interested in classic drama and prose (for example, his productions of Anton Chekhov's story Seryozha and The Decameron at the Sovremennik, and Ostrovsky's The Forest at the Lensovet Theatre in St. Petersburg), the drama of the absurd (Waiting for Godot at the Workshop Theatre Club), and contemporary prose (Genocide after Vsevolod Benigsen's novel at the Sovremennik).  
He is one of three directors who created the experimental all-night production of Anton Chekhov's The Seagull at the Stanislavsky Electrotheatre in January 2016.
