This onion-domed church was across the street from one of the many house-museums in Moscow.  The house-museum was the home of the theatre director, Ostrovsky, and it had a lot of maquets and production photos.  Great good fun and very inspiring.

So much of the architecture in Moscow fascinated me.  None more than the many churches; some in use and some in disrepair.  I loved the orange ones the most.  This one is in the Kitay Gorod district to the east of Red Square.

The front view of the Bolshoi Theatre near Teatralnaya metro station.  Not as emotional for me as Red Square or the Moscow Art Theatre, but still pretty significant.  It was beautiful.  Love the fountain.

Also near the Novokuznetskaya metro station is this cathedral.  It was torn down during the Stalin regime and rebuilt by the will of the people in the last decade of the 20th Century.  I have several emotional attachments to this building from 2002; many good, some not so good, all strong to this day.  This photo was of my first sighting.

The Pushkin Museum near the Novokuznetskaya metro station.  I enjoyed my time at the Tretyakov Gallery more, but I'm very glad that I was able to spend some time at the Pushkin as well.

This is the exterior of the Moscow Art Theatre building on Kamergerskiy Pereulok.  The evening I took this photo I had purchased a ticket to see a production of Antigone, in Russian.  Luckily I knew enough of the story to be able to keep up.  It was a Monday night and the place was packed with 350 patrons who took their theatre seriously.  350 patrons on a Monday night.  *sigh*

This theatre, which I believe was on Tverskaya, was playing "Hamlet".
