Maxim Didenko, one of the most popular directors of the new generation, who released a number of theatrical hits last season, is putting on the main stage a musical based on the legendary Soviet comedy Circus. In the main role - Ingeborga Dapkunaite. According to the plot of the film Grigory Alexandrov, released in 1936, the USSR is visited by the star of the American circus Marion Dixon with the attraction "Flight to the Moon." The number is a huge success, but its author - German von Kneitschitz blackmailing Marion, threatening to reveal to everyone the secret of her personal life.
Ingeborga Dapkunaite will play in the "Circus" not only Marion Dixon, in whose name - a direct roll call with Marlene Dietrich, but also "Russian Dietrich" - Love Orlova - star of Soviet cinema, the performer of the leading role in the "Circus" Alexandrov.
Maxim Didenko defines the style of his play as a retro-futurism: "The action takes place in a conditional future, which was invented in the distant past." Composer Ivan Kushnir will rethink the "soundtrack" of "Circus" - "Song of the Motherland" by Vasily Lebedev-Kumach and Isaak Dunaevsky, the famous lines "A Wide Country is My Native ..." will acquire a new sound in the production. Maria Tregubova, owner of the Grand Prix of the Prague Quadrennial, laureate of the Golden Mask, Crystal Turandot and other theater prizes, is responsible for the decoration of the performance.
In the play there will be clowns, real circus tricks and orchestra. According to the director, the circus is sometimes breathtaking, but then certainly it should be fun.
The premiere of the performance "Circus" will take place within the framework of the 17th Open Art Festival "Cherry Wood".
