The Roman comedy (Dion)16+
Art without age, without regard for the time - interesting, relevant and very vital.
Probably, after this phrase, you could safely decide that it will be about something modern. But it was not there. After all, the "Roman comedy" written by the most talented playwright Zorin about the days of long gone, even more than that of the ancients, is more urgent now than ever.
And the new production on the stage of the Mossovet Theater is a vivid confirmation of this.
But what is its relevance? Let's look into the spectator room and plunge into the world that exists on the stage. In the world of ancient Rome, in which once ruled a cunning, cruel and very prudent politician - Domitian.
However, he was not the only eminent inhabitant of Rome of those times, there also lived a philosopher and poet - Dion. Although he has a neighbor - Servili. And of course, both poets have wives. Dion is a rebel, Servilius is a conformist. One - can not and does not want to be deceitful and mean in favor of power, and the second - just wants to live quietly and well. And above all these ... extends the hand of Domitian.
Domitian is not a poet, he is simply a ruler, for whom power is itself self-sufficient. And it does not matter what is done or not done there, it is most important to rule! But what kind of power - without those who are "for" her and those who do not mind, but "for" changes? Of course, this simply does not exist.
But what can the similar, no doubt, fascinating dialogue between the ruler and the poet lead to?
“ Modern, extremely relevant, in the spirit of Russian theater. Sophisticated and successfully replaced the scenery, good costumes. Magnificent Viktor Sukhorukov, becomes the leading actor of the theater, to match him, the play of all the artists in the play. Herald is somewhat unsuccessful, there was no expression, let down the diction. Shone Margarita Shubin. Thanks to Pavel Chomsky for courage, got to the point. I advise you to see and have fun.
“ An excellent play in itself, will be relevant, apparently, always, if it's actual for 50 years already! Great scenery. And finally, an excellent game by Sergei Vinogradov, Olga Ostroumova and enchanting Viktor Sukhorukov!
“ A wonderful performance - a topic at all times relevant - the eternal opposition of the authorities and the real artist. In the best traditions of the Russian theater - wonderful scenery for creating the atmosphere of Rome, music - full of associations and very to the point - the cross of modernity and classics. And of course - tremendous acting work - Viktor Ivanovich Sukhorukov - absolute actor's genius - Emperor - is sparkling, plastic and endlessly captures attention. And in contrast to it - the Poet - performed by Sergei Vinogradov - a tired philosopher with a lyre in his hands - a very interesting work for a fine actor. And all the actors outside this confrontation around are very harmonious. The play must be watched! And for enjoying the art of theater, and everyone - for thinking ... and the best monument to the recently departed Director.
