The contacts in the theatres of Russia and Finland include the performances of the Russian State theatre in Helsinki (a detailed study, see: my monograph of 2009, SKS, Helsinki). We quote memoirs of the Helsinki seasons by the St.Petersburg actor Alexander Nilski (Imperial Theatre). On the other side, performances of Russian drama (Gogol, Ostrovsky, Lev Tolstoy, Turgenev, Gorki) at the Finnish theatre (founded in 1872) draw a lot of attention of both Finnish and local Russian spectators. An interesting case in point are the performances of Gogol's The Inspector General (Revizor) in Finnish (1887-1902), one of the most popular dramas of the foreign repertoire.
