Fedor Ivanovich Shalyapin, a great opera bass, sang in the Bolshoi and Mariinsky theaters, but most roles were performed for the first time on the stage of the Moscow private Russian opera by Mamontov. Among his best performances are Boris (Boris Godunov by M.P. Mussorgsky), Mephistopheles (Gounod's Faust and Arrigo Boyto's Faust), Melnik (The Mermaid by A.S. Dragomizhsky), Ivan the Terrible (Pskovityanka, H A.Rimsky-Korsakov), Susanin (Ivan Susanin by M.I. Glinka). He also performed Russian folk songs and romances.

During the First World War in his mansion on Novinsky Boulevard Shalyapin opened a hospital in which he sang in front of the soldiers. It was here that the "Shalyapin Studio" arose, from which many celebrities emerged: O. Androvskaya, R. Simonov, M.Astangov.

In 1988 in the mansion on Novinsky Boulevard the House-Museum of F. Shalyapin was opened.

The author of the sculpture is Vadim Tserkovnikov.
