The Foundation's partnership with the Zolotaya Maska ('Golden Mask') festival commenced in the very year the Festival first began, and continues to the present day.
In 2004, in a joint cooperation, the Norilsk Seasons Festival was first held, and later a tour by the Maly Theatre in Moscow was organised – the Theatre of Europe, directed by Lev Dolin.
In 2010 the Foundation supported a tour of the famous Alexandrinsky Theatre (St Petersburg) to Moscow.
In March 2011 the Foundation became the general sponsor of a new theatrical project – the “Festival of Polish Theatre in Moscow”, prepared for the Zolotaya Maska Festival in collaboration with the Polish Institute of Adam Mickiewicz.
In 2014 the Mikhail Prokhorov Foundation, as part of the celebrations for its 10th Anniversary, became the general partner for the premiere of the show “Ice” (by the National Theatre of Warsaw) in Moscow.
