This article analyzes the state of the productions of Shakespearean scenes in experimental theaters. The main examples of experiments with Shakespeare's plays in various theaters, as well as the periods of time with which these productions are associated are given in this paper. Particular attention is paid to the production of “A Midsummer Night's Dream” by Kirill Serebrennikov, who attracted attention not only by the originality, but also by the person of Kirill Serebrennikov, who became the center of the recent scandal about the “non-existence” of this production.
