WE ARE A 501(C)(3) NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT PRESENTS RUSSIAN CULTURAL PROGRAMS TO AUDIENCES IN THE GREATER NEW ORLEANS METROPOLITAN AREA.



Why Russian culture in Louisiana?

 

The simple explanation is because Natasha O. Ramer landed in New Orleans in 1984 from Russia.  A professional theatre director and actress, Ms. Ramer enjoyed a vibrant career in her native Russia; naturally, she wanted to share that culture and her experience with audiences here.

 

Sensing that Russian theater and music would make a valuable contribution to local culture, she created Moscow Nights—and since 1999 her instincts proved correct.

CURRENT PRODUCTION

Program based on selections of literary great Mikhail Bulgakov’s (1891-1940) novel The Master And Margarita, focused upon the trial of Jesus before Pontius Pilate.

Moscow Nights is also looking forward to the 2018-2019 season, in which we plan to collaborate with ArtSpot Productions. We will give the world premiere of director and playwright Mira Erceg’s most recent play, The Last Love of Anna Akhmatova Or How The Cold War Began.

A series of events celebrating the life, works and global legacy of Russia’s eminent female Poet, Anna Akhmatova.

Presented in two parts, the first being an introduction to who Anna was: her life and poetry presented in an intimate concert format.

The second part of this presentation is to be a dramatization of moments from her life.
