  Vasily Kachalov came to Kazan in the fall of 1897. He supposed to continue his study at the juridical faculty of the Kazan State University and perform on Kazan stage.
  Kachalov had performed for three seasons in Kazan. First - in small, not important roles. The critics as well as audience didn't pay any attention to his acting technique. But he learnt very quick from the talented actors at the Kazan theatre, and his acting technique developed. He was noticed and to the end of the season he played important roles. He had a born talent and professional presistance in work.
  In 1900 Kachalov got an invitation from the Moscow Artistic Theatre. Before his departure, Kachalov gave his last farewell concert.
