Everyone knows that Perm is a theater and ballet city. Here is the famous opera and ballet theater, the famous ballet school, whose graduates dance on the best stages in the world, and a grateful, understanding and appreciating public. But, probably, not everyone knows that it all began in the difficult years of the Great Patriotic War, when the Kirov Theater (now the Mariinsky Theater) and the Vaganov Ballet School were evacuated to the city of Molotov (as Perm was then called) from Leningrad, which was already practically blockaded by the Nazis. Then began this evacuation romance that continues to this day.
