Theatrical art In 1882 the first Ukrainian professional theatre was founded in Kirovohrad. Its founder was Marko Kropyvnytsky, the brilliant actor, director and playwright. By the play “Natalka Poltavka” he announced to the world the maturity and originality of Ukrainian theatrical culture. Its 130th birthday in October, 2012 the Kirovohrad Regional Ukrainian Academic Music and Drama Theatre named after M. Kropyvnytsky celebrated in a rebuilt building. Its walls haven’t seen so much audience and applause for a long time. The event is really unique not only for Kirovohrad but for the whole country. After the renovation it is the first theatre built in the time of independent Ukraine. The theatre scrupulously honours the memory of the founders of the Ukrainian theatrical art — M. Sadovsky, I. Karpenko-Karyi, P.Saksahansky, M. Zankovetska. The heritage of these men of genius gives force to the modern troupe, whose calling card are the plays “Natalka Poltavka”, “Sorochynskyi Fair”, “Match-Making in Honcharivka”. Every year the theatre invites the leading art companies of the country to Khutor Nadia, “the capital of Ukrainian dramaturgy” and the reserve museum of I.Tobilevych (Karpenko-Karyi), for the national festival “Veresnevi Samotsvity”.
