The palace was built by Count Nikolai Sheremetev as a site of entertainment for the nobility. The theater was opened in summer of 1795, amazing the guests with unprecedented stage effects. Its repertory had about a hundred of operas, ballets and comedies. Two hundred years later the theater is still open to the public. The Museum-Estate "Ostankino" is trying to recreate the atmosphere of the Sheremetev Theater. You'll often have the chance to listen to the same works as played for the noble guests of count Sheremetev.
