Комедия о Фроле Скобееве12+
Dmitry Vasilyevich Averkiev wrote this play in 1869, and, according to literary merit, F. Dostoyevsky even compared it to Pushkin's "Captain's daughter," considering this picaresque comedy a bright pearl of Russian literature.
Its full name is "A Comedy about the Russian Nobleman Frol Skobeev and Narodin-Nashchokin's Misconductor, Annushka's Daughter." The action takes place in the XVII century. Frol Skobeev is a poor nobleman, gifted with a bright and desperate character. He, as they say, is a "player", a dashing adventurer and tireless entrepreneur who has turned his life into a chain of risky pursuits. Everything is for him nothing, and from any position, outwitting everyone around, he will become an indispensable winner, creating for us one of the beautiful Russian life-affirming types, drawing it with broad, light, reckless strokes. He conceived the almost impossible - to marry the cynical daughter Annushka. And - he married, having accomplished in this name a clever and brilliant machination. And even managed to fall in love with this proud highborn beauty. And at the same time he helped his sister Varvara to marry the so-called son Savva Lychikova - thus raising the social status of her entire family ... We will see here a story about a desperate Russian man who heads headlong into any dangerous plans - in order to be a winner, not a defeated one .
We will also see the Russian life of the 17th century on the stage - what she appeared at the behest of the director Mikhail Mizyukov. And we will plunge into the elements of the old Russian speech, in the intricate ligature of which weave magnificent verse fragments - just where the heroes talk about love. After all, such poetic and quivering moments deserve to be expressed only in verse! Yes, here it is also told about the mystery of love: how it incomprehensibly arises, how it flares up and flares up ...
In this beautiful play, intended for family viewing, each generation will find something for itself. The scenography of Maria Utrobina, the main core of which was the Russian roundabout, turns the action into a continuous and exciting movement, into a fun and intoxicating whirlwind - which is life itself in the immortal comedy of Averkiev.
“ The performance is just wonderful, really great comedy! Initially went with her husband to this performance to just diversify the evening and did not particularly expect that the performance would surprise us with something, but it turned out that this performance is just a find! The actors' play is simply amazing, lots of funny moments and an excellent story. The performance was looked at in one breath and did not want the story to end, all the heroes were very fond of it. Also I want to note perfectly chosen costumes that are completely tolerated in that era of Russian life, where all customs and traditions were observed, besides the atmosphere in the theater plunges you into the world of hospitality, during the intermission all spectators are treated with tasty mint tea. Thanks to all the staff and actors of this beautiful theater, we will definitely visit your other performances, I hope there will be a similar good impression from other productions.
