The historic building of the Youth Theater in Irkutsk will be restored after a major fire

Today, May 14, experts will examine the Young Spectator Theater building in the capital of the Angara region, which was damaged by fire the day before. Experts will have to assess the damage and draw conclusions about the correctness of documents for the restoration of a monument of history and culture. This was said in the government of the Irkutsk region.

Let us remember that the fire signal was received on Friday the 13th, around 7:30 p.m. local time. The fire quickly spread over an area of ​​more than a thousand square meters, this was facilitated by the hollow ceilings of the old building. Fire received a third increased difficulty rank.

The stage, located in the building attached to the theater a hundred years ago, in the 1920s, completely burned down. It was not, according to historians, of particular value. The restoration project of the Youth Theater, prepared last year, involved the demolition of this extension – they planned to create a modern stage in its place.

However, the fire also damaged the main theater building built in the 19th century, a monument of regional importance. Since 1938 the Young Theater has been operating here. During the last decade and a half, these premises have not been used due to their emergency condition.

It should be noted that against the background of a fire in the city, there were rumors that the theater would sink into oblivion, and some kind of shopping center or hotel would take its place. On this occasion, Governor Kobzev has already made a statement: “I want to immediately stop all speculation and discussion: the building is subject to restoration. This is history, and we will restore it. There will be no hotels, shopping centers and objects of other functionality in this place !”.
