Theatrical Library of Saint-Petersburg

The location of the library


First page Prev Next Index

The location of the library became known only from the beginning of the XIXth century. It was quartered in the St.Petersburg Maly Theatre, which was built by architect V.Brenna and from 1832 it was located in the Alexandrinsky Theatre, finished by that time by C.Rossi. We can suppose, that the Library moved around with the Russian theatre company till it found the permanent location. At first, the Central Administration of the Imperial Theatres entrusted the management of the library to the roles copyists and prompters, and later-to the translators. They were put under the supervision of the Inspectors of the Russian theatre company. In 1889 the Central Administration of the Imperial Theatres gave an order for joining the libraries of French, German, Russian theatre companies and the Mounting library. The library's depository is located in three spacious halls fitted with built-in two-tiered oak bookcases on the ground floor of the building in Teatralnaya ulitsa (now 2, ulitsa Zodchego Rossi).

C.Rossi (1775-1849)
