964. Gorky Drama Theatre
















Dear Mikhail,

Shchuko and his partner Gelfreich designed notorious buildings
like the Elektrozavodskaya Moscow Metro Station, famous for
its architectural decoration, the Lenin Library, and more
importantly the Palace of Soviets. While still designing this last
building, they completed a large constructivist opera theater in
Rostov-on-Don later destroyed in World War II and rebuilt in
1963.

Sincerely,
R
