The city of Yaroslavl is believed to be the home town of the professional Russian theatre. It was here that in 1750 Fyodor Volkov set up an amateur theatre company, based on which in 1756 the first professional public theatre was organised in St.Petersburg. The Fyodor Volkov drama theatre in Yaroslavl is regarded as Russia’s oldest theatre. In 1969 its company organised a theatrical school. Thanks to its successful development in 1981 it was accorded the status of a state theatre institute. Its graduates currently work in many well-known Russian theatres.

There are 3 theatre specialization departments: Acting (drama and cinema, musical theatre, puppetry); Directing (drama, puppetry); Stage design (drama, puppetry)
