Beginning of the Tatar national theater movement in Russia falls at 1905 and is associated with the city of Orenburg. Namely in Orenburg began its artistic life first Tatar theater company “Sayar” (“Traveller”). Subsequently, “Sayar” had a strong influence on the emergence of new national theater companies in various Turkic-speaking countries and is actually the mother of national theaters in Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkey and others.
In Orenburg theatrical traditions preserved such troupes as “Shirkat” (“Partnership”), “Tuplan” (“Unite”), “Yoldyz” (“Star”), and others, having gathered in their groups people who dedicated life to Tatar theater, such as Khalil Abzhalilov – People’s Artist of the USSR, Fatima Ilskaya – People’s Artist of Russia, Fatima Kamalova – Honored Artist of the Russian Federation and others.
During the Great Patriotic War, many actors went to the front. Post-war difficulties led to the closure of the theater. By efforts of director Vali Fatihov and his companions, the artists started working under the auspices of the regional philharmonic society.
One of the conditions of long-term preservation of the Tatar theater traditions in the Orenburg region was the creation of the state of the Tatar theater. And in 1989, at the initiative of the Tatar Public Center for the organization of the theater of Kazan was invited Honored Artist of the Republic of Tatarstan, and now the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation Rastam Abdullayev. June 27, 1990, by the decision of the regional executive committee of People’s Deputies of the Orenburg region the Tatar State Drama Theatre named after classic of Tatar drama, our countryman, Mirhaydar Faizi has been created.
