The Bolshoi Theatre began its life as the private theatre of the Moscow proseсutor Prince Pyotr Urusov.

On 28 March 1776, Empress Catherine II signed and granted the Prince the 'privilege' of organizing theatre performances, masquerades, balls and other forms of entertainment for a period of ten years. It is from this date that Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre traces its history.
