Support The Moscow Times!

Today in History, Nov. 21

The Sats Theater exclusively puts on plays for the entertainment of children.

Forty-eight years ago today, on Nov. 21, 1965, the world's first professional theater for children was founded in Moscow under the leadership of Natalia Sats. Sats played a crucial role in advancing children's theater throughout Russia and commissioned several masterpieces that achieved international fame, such as Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
