~ Our Mission ~

Moscow Nights is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the appreciation of Russian culture through theatrical and music presentations, festivals and educational programs.  Based in the Greater Metropolitan New Orleans region, Moscow Nights brings the riches of Russian culture, the spirit of internationalism, and the commitment to present highly professional, innovative performances and educational programming to diverse audiences.

~ Longing for Peace And Home ~

Our latest project is a musical concert entitled: "Longing for Peace and Home in the Songs of the Second World War."  New Orleans, perhaps more than most American cities, has a vivid and living recollection of the Second World War because of our National World War II Museum.  The war itself took place across most of the world, and nowhere was the fighting more murderous and extensive than on the "Eastern Front" where Nazi Armies invaded in June of 1941 and were ultimately defeated by the Red Army ~ assisted in no small measure by America through our "Lend Lease" program.

Russia's Grand Duke Alexis arrives in New Orleans in 1872. His visit coincides with the rebirth of New Orleans Mardi Gras.  When he attends the first "Rex" parade, New Orleans culture grows and embraces Russian culture as one more element blending into our enclave of internationalism.  Over 100 years later, Moscow Nights continues that grand tradition started by the celebrated son of Tsar Alexander II adding a dab of Russian excitement to a region already renowned for French, Spanish, Sicilian and African traditions ...   Learn More About Moscow Nights Here

~ Theater! ~

Some of Moscow Nights' best known projects have been theater plays ~ works that have explored the depths of human passion, or dazzled audiences with a breathtaking whirl of music and dance. Whether a drama or a cabaret, these presentations share the goal of presenting Russian culture to Louisiana audiences. Moscow Nights prides itself on not only offering excellent programs, but staging works that would not otherwise be seen in the New Orleans area.
