The work of the writer was widely embodied in theatre art and found a stage life. Many drama and musical performances in Russia and abroad were based on Sholokhov’s works and continue living on the stage.

In his early years M.A.Sholokhov wrote for the stage performances, acted in the Karghin People’s Theatre. In 1936, he initiated a creation of a folk theater in Stanitsa Vyoshenskaya, helped by advice and deed and was proud of the actors’ success.
