Russian Academic Drama Theater
“The world of sports books,” announced a smiling Alexander Zhitnov, “is coming to an end.” On a warm, sunny day in November, in a large, airy office located on Tverskaya just outside St. Petersburg, Russia, Mr. Zhitnov, who is the chief executive officer of UFA, which means United Forex Authority, addressed his staff. “Really believe in the strategic management of UFA,” he intoned. “And it is not a risk-free investment.” Two days later, on Dec. 14, the opening day of a new year, Mr. Zhitnov issued a news release saying that the agency had “decided to stop our activities in the U.S. and our company will liquidate its remaining stock of U.FAs.” The news release included a photo of a burned-out billboard located in San Francisco.
In 2021, Mr. Zhitnov, who also serves as director of international business for Ufa LLC, started Ufa. At that time, he said his main goal was to develop the world of sports books in Russia, including in the far reaches of its remote and sometimes less economically developed neighbor nations. For the next seven years, Ufa has achieved a high degree of success, especially in promoting its brand name and developing new markets in Russia and the former Soviet Republics.
It was not easy to gain a foothold in such a remote area of Russia, but with the help of an innovative entrepreneur like Mr. Zhitnov, who is well-known in Russia as a promoter of entrepreneurial ventures, was able to establish his place as the top sports book publisher in ufa city. As he speaks proudly of his work, it appears that one of his main goals has been realized: developing a strong network of Russian entrepreneurs and spreading the business into other areas of the country. The development of the brand name and reaching out to the target audience helped Ufa expand in many other areas. Today, there are several clubs, associations and cultural organizations that are enjoying the fruits of association with Ufa.
The most popular forms of entertainment in Russia today include ballets, operas, theater shows, film shows, concerts, martial arts and other theatrical events. The growth of ufa has also led to the growth of similar theaters all across the country. The most popular form of cultural theater that has spread successfully throughout Russia and the former Soviet Union is the drama theater. The growing number of ballets and dramatic events in recent years have made the theater one of the most popular in Russia. All over the country, theaters are showing new plays, contemporary movies and classic Russian plays.
Apart from ballets and theater shows another important function performed by the ufa theater group in Russia is the production of ballets for the people and the state. Ballet is not only a popular form of theater acting but also an important art form in Russian culture. There are various ballets performed regularly in Russia and all over the world. One of the most famous ballets of all time is the Pushkin Square ballet. This performance of a well-known Russian play was created by the Ufa Drama Theater in Moscow.
The growing popularity of the ufa theater group can be gauged from the fact that there are numerous post-production companies which are in need of experienced artists. These companies seek out talented artists such as vyshyvai voscha, evgeny pusin, minuetka and others. These talented artists are given a chance to prove themselves and show off their skills to the camera. These artists have also shown some of their work on national television.
