The festival Voices of History, which emerged in 1991 as a review of the performances of professional theatres in the historical and architectural ensemble of the unique environment of the Vologda Kremlin has long been a hallmark of the Vologda Region. The theatre festival is held every two years in June. In 2003 it received an international status.

The international festival merits great attention. The success of it has been conditioned by the professionalism of the participants and serious experience, and the ability to combine these qualities with Russian national characteristics. The performances are also shown in the open air. Theatres from USA, Poland, Greece, Italy, Ukraine, Belarus and other countries come to give performances in Vologda. The focus of the festival is on the history of Russia and the world history.

This year the Voices of History will be held not only in the historical setting of the Vologda Kremlin, which is a point of interest itself, but also in the Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery and the Museum of history and ethnography "Manor of the Galskoys” in Cherepovets City.

In June 2016 the Voices of History will attract the most skilful actors and repertory theatres from Moscow, St.Petersburg, Nizhni Novgorod, Elista, Petrozavodsk, Oryol, Vologda and other Russian cities.

The festival will include round tables where theatre critics, directors and participants of the festival will discuss problems of modern Russian theatre.
