* Alexander Ostrovsky (1823 – 1886) was a Russian playwright. With the help of Moscow capitalists, he established the Maly Theatre (Small Theatre) as a model theatre and school of dramatic art, of which he became the first director. He also founded the Society of Russian Dramatic Art and Opera Composers.
