Dance company. A school for a Moscow orphanage was created in 1773, and its pupils were employed by Prince Pyotr Urusov and the English theatrical entrepreneur Michael Maddox, to form part of a new dance company. Originally performing in privately owned venues, they later acquired the Petrovsky Theatre, which eventually was rebuilt as today's Bolshoi Theatre.
