A good man from Sezuana12+
A play-parable in two acts
The first performance of director Yuri Lyubimov. 50 years ago, in April 1964 he was played on the stage of the Taganka Theater, becoming the symbol and talisman of the new theater. "A good man from Sezuan" opens a festive decade dedicated to the birthday of the Taganka Theater.
The descendants of the gods are searching unsuccessfully for at least one good man. Finally, this turned out to be Shen Te, a prostitute from Sezuan. But the more she does good to other people, the more troubles she gets ... This legendary performance, from which the history of the Taganka Theater began under the guidance of Yuri Lyubimov, explores the roots of good and evil in the human soul.
She wanted to leave with someone she loved. I did not want to calculate how much it costs.
The world is just. Every investigation has its own reason. What goes around comes around. Everyone gets what they deserve.
Who else believes in these fairy tales?
She had the imprudence to show compassion and extend a helping hand. And for this she was brutally punished.
Chinese gods have decided that they will have mercy on the province of Sichuan. Eliminate the exhausted inhabitants from hunger and other ills.
But they will do it only when they find at least one good person among them.
The burden of responsibility lay on the fragile female shoulders of a local prostitute. She will also shelter the disadvantaged, and comfort the uninvited waterer. And his wives, who failed to fly, will give wings.
But not a single good deed has gone unpunished. The more compassion she showed, the more she sat on her neck.
To avoid being on the street, she had to invent an imaginary cousin. He will be able to say no!
It is hot as fire. It's as cold as ice.
But if she is the only kind person, then who will help her?
“ A good performance. Holds to the end. It is clear why half a century ago he was a bomb. But for today, it's a bit rustic. I recommend everyone who is interested in the history of the Russian theater as a whole and the history of Taganka in particular.
“ Thank you very much for the performance. Had a good time. I recommend to everyone!
“ The performance is boring and weak, gone (for the first time in my life) after the first act! After watching this performance in another theater, this performance is in no way comparable. Alas, the time spent.
