    I wish America would have a few more really nice, state sponsored buildings like this for cultural things. But they’re all too busy watching kim kardishian to worry about anything cultural.

    It was built in 1931-1941, when nobody counted money in the Soviet Union. The government built palaces everywhere, like this theatre, exactly in the time when TENS OF MILLIONS of people in USSR died from government-planned and executed hunger.
    This theatre is like a tomb monument to those tens of millions of dead Soviet citizens. And it is probably large enough to have room for memorial plaques with names of all of those millions. Never going to happen, unfortunately.

    From Wikipedia: During the construction, in 1937 NKVD “discovered” a group of “enemies of the people” among the builders. Almost all construction managers who worked on the theatre during beginning stages of the construction, were arrested and later died in prison camps.
