Moscow Nights Presents

Moscow Nights is excited to embrace a new type of creative venture while it continues to offer local audiences unique cultural experiences.  The project, Fašade, is an original, experimental theater piece based on a book by William Wade, Jr. 

Inspired by Fašade, the book, Moscow Nights Artistic Director Natasha O. Ramer adapted it for theater. The play will explore through a fresh, contemporary approach the challenges and spiritual odyssey individuals and families face when confronted with a loved-one’s life-threatening diagnosis and untimely death.

~ Our History ~

In 1880, Russia’s Grand Duke Alexei visited Louisiana. Perhaps the highlight of this trip was the moment this real blueblood bowed down to the Kings of the New Orleans Carnival.

At that moment, Russian culture touched a people with a strong presence and a vibrant personality all their own.

Well over 100 years later, Moscow Nights, Inc. continues that grand tradition started by the celebrated son of Tsar Alexander II, adding a bit of Russian excitement to an area well known for French, Spanish, Sicilian, and African traditions.

Moscow Nights is a non-profit 501(c)(3) arts organization in the greater New Orleans area that is dedicated to enlightening audiences on various aspects of Russian and Eastern European culture. Through it's activities, Moscow Nights provides both Russians and non-Russians alike with artistic performances and intellectual programs that bring a bit of Russian culture to a Louisiana audience.
