Natalia Maeva graduated from The Vakhtangov Theatre Academy, where
she studied in the studio run by Vladimir Etush (a People’s Artist of the
USSR). She received her artistic training from Nina Rusinova, Cecilia
Mansurova, Maria Sidel’nikova, and Evgeny Simonov. Natalia’s fellow students were
Alexander Zbruev, Ludmila Maksakova, Ivan Bortnik, and Alexander Belyavsky.
Natalia Maeva first played at the Moscow Comedy Theatre and later with
the New Drama Theatre directed by the People’s Artist of the Russian
Federation, Boris L’vov-Anohin.
Boris L’vov-Anohin commented on Natalia: “Maeva is a person, who is fully
immersed in art; one who is always deeply moved by some performance,
artist, book or music”.
In 2006, Natalia published her book “Mimoletnosti-entries from an actress’s diary”. Her monodrama “The Human Voice” by Jean Cocteau was very well received in France.
