Do you know anything from theatre history? Any honored actors?

The origins of dramatic art can be traced in different cultures of the world but the antique culture gave birth to the western theatre tradition and also some of the theatrical forms to emerge in the world - tragedy, comedy and satyr plays. The Roman culture borrowed Ancient Greece theatrical genres which became the foundation of dramatic art in Rome.

Generally speaking, Greek theatre and plays have had a lasting impact on Western drama and culture. It is in ancient Greece that the origin of western theatre is to be found. It developed from a state festival in Athens, honoring the god Dionysus. The Athenian city-state exported the festival to its numerous allies in order to promote a common identity.

As for honoured actors, I know several distinguished Russian headliners, for example, Nickolay Tsiskaridze, Ilze Liepa, Mihail Dyakov. All of them are the Bolshoi theatre big-name actors.
