Alla Konstantinovna Tarasova (Russian: А́лла Константи́новна Тара́сова; 6 February [O.S. 25 January] 1897 in Kiev – 5 April 1973 in Moscow) was a leading actress of Constantin Stanislavski's Moscow Art Theatre from the late 1920s onward.[1]


A title role in Anna Karenina (1937) was her most resounding success. She appeared to mixed reviews as Katerina in the screen version of Ostrovsky's The Storm (1934) and as Catherine I in the movie Peter the Great (1937). Tarasova toured London and United States with the Moscow Art Theatre in 1922-1924 to much international acclaim. She was a recipient of five Stalin State Prizes (in 1941, twice in 1946, 1947, and 1949), two Orders of Lenin and the honorary title of People's Artist of the USSR in 1937.[2]

Tarasova joined the Communist Party in 1954, having already been elected to the Supreme Soviet of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1952. She served as a deputy of the Supreme Soviet until 1960 and was awarded the title of Hero of Socialist Labour shortly before her death in 1973.[3]

Tarasova died on 5 April 1973 and was interred at the Vvedenskoye Cemetery.[4]

In 1975, a ship, the MV Alla Tarasova, was named after her.
