Moscow Cats Theatre

Anton Novodehzhkin/ТАSS

This is one of Moscow's oldest theatres for kids, invented and led by renowned animal handler Yuri Kuklachev. Kuklachev's cats fly in spaceships, sing in chorus, wear old-timey starched dresses, play musical instruments, and do a lot of other incredible things. Some shows may involve as many as 40 felines at the same time. Kuklachev has spent years training his cats. His concept is that you do not "train" cats, you play with them, detecting and nurturing individual talents in every animal. The theatre has a custom-built air conditioning system, which makes sure allergy never acts up on those who are allergic to cats. Adults and kids alike find Kuklachev's cat shows perfectly enjoyable.
