“ If you follow the classic Shakespearean Hamlet, this is not the story. But if you are open to something new and exciting, then Hamlet Story is your performance. Firstly, you need to start watching with a mini movie - a movie about the play, this trailer in 2 minutes conveys the dynamics of the plot, which awaits you on the site. Secondly, the performance itself takes place in the cozy hall of the House of Music, which adds charm to the performance. Thirdly, be prepared to hear the works of Shakespeare himself, Joseph Brodsky, David Samoilov, Boris Ryzhiy, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Dmitry Prigov and Sergei Chonishvili. Fourthly, the exciting reading of both Sergeyev (Chonishvili and Shnyrev) and Alexei Kravchenko, recalls the forgotten entertainment - reading in the literary halls. I really love poetry, and immensely admired the voices of Hamlet performers. Yes, you heard right, in this story there were 3 Hamlets, or rather 4, I forgot about Alexei Aigi. Alexey Aigi is the music of the project, the leading violin and the powerful dynamics of the performance. Because the music in Hamlet Story is a separate tool for influencing mood, sensations, perception of verses and perceptions of Hamlets themselves. Because in this story, Hamlets are different in character, profession, appearance, but completely similar inside, with internal doubts, feelings and problems. I still cannot but note the visual picture of the play, yes, there is still multimedia in the play. This is partly a video about which I wrote above, partly well-chosen pictures. However, the picture is also part of the play, I would say, very significant. But this is not a separate picture or video clip, it is still the same indispensable part of the play as readers or musicians. In my opinion, the director of the production, Natalya Semenova, managed to show in a new way the timeless classic that does not lose the relevance of the problem - to find oneself in this world in modern realities. In general, I am still impressed by the actors, the musicians, the perfectly selected verses, the perfectly created music and the perfectly selected venue. Well, I met recently at the Commonwealth of Actors, Musicians and ... Theater, but I think it’s very timely and successful. And I am delighted from the beginning of the productions to their very last minutes and chords. Will I go yet? Definitely, I’ll go. Do I recommend a performance? Surely recommend.
“ Increasingly, I began to return to the classics. Why? Probably because it is interesting to observe precisely their transformations. The work is the same, but I am changing, and my attitude is changing. I am looking for answers to eternal questions, and then again fascinated by Onegin, then again I hate him. But, you know, not falling in love with Onegin played by Daniil Strakhov is simply impossible! What a clear hit in the image, and what a game! We sat pretty close, the actor’s facial expressions were clearly visible, just what I didn’t have for the first time. Again was on "Onegin.Show" and I want more! Very grateful to the actors themselves who risked to take the classics and create a masterpiece. The role of the author was played by Sergey Chonishvili - oh, what a voice! You can listen endlessly! For the first time, I somehow coolly appreciated the game of Irina Pegova, and now the actress has opened up, I was waiting for her to appear: here is a timid young girl in front of us, here is a letter written as if in delirium, in love fever, but nonetheless, very frank and an honest, but already matured socialite, but ... the same "dear Tatyana", who now has to hide her feelings. Yes, a lot has been removed in the production, the plot is given in large strokes, a dream and a duel are shown in general the video nearby. This performance is for a trained viewer who remembers the plot and can quickly scroll through all the missing scenes in his head. This performance is a reflection, a reflection on the fate of the heroes, on the possible or impossible endings ... Once again, proximity to the stage turned out to be important when you see the facial expressions of the actors, their game is perceived differently. Sergei Shnyrev played Lensky, it is amazing how the actor changed, how he managed to show the image of a young poet! The music of Alexei Aigi and his group "4'33" unites the plot, places accents, and disturbs the soul. You expect this music no less than replicas of heroes, and I always miss it! I haven’t heard enough, I need to go separately to a concert. The performance was in the Svetlanov Hall of the House of Music. Very nice room with amazing acoustics and comfortable places. I have already visited all the halls of the House of Music, everywhere there is good sound and decoration of the halls. In conclusion, I’ll say that this time we were with my husband, he wasn’t theatrical at all, pulling him somewhere is always a problem, but SAMI asks for tickets and is ready to go. He like it very much.
“ “How cool to spend the winter and go towards the upcoming spring?”, You ask. "Touch the most beautiful: music, poetry and theater!" - I will answer you. "Onegin" from SAMI is my third meeting with this most beautiful. A meeting in the beautiful Svetlanov Hall of the Moscow International House of Music in the company of an excellent cast: Irina Pegova, Sergey Shnyreva, Daniil Strakhova and Sergey Chonishvili. The plot of "Eugene Onegin" by the great A. S. Pushkin is certainly familiar to everyone from school. Someone didn’t understand the heroes, someone was worried with them, and someone just didn’t open the book ... But I think if what I saw and heard on the stage of the Svetlanov Hall of MMMD is shown to modern schoolchildren, then a volume " Onegin "will become a reference book for many. And I want to tell you, I really liked this version of the novel “Eugene Onegin”. The performance begins and ends with the talented music of Aleksey Aigi, tearing the soul and heart of the audience throughout the performance. Aigi's music is a new hero in the novel of the great classic, but not foreign, but uniting those on the stage and those who are in the hall. This is such a quintessence of everything that happens on the stage: it inspires and makes you think about many things. The performance begins all of a sudden with the final monologue of Eugene Onegin. Daniil Strakhov in this role is an ideal hit in the image of the Pushkin hero. You believe him. Sometimes you feel sorry. Tired, searching, disappointed ... either quickly, practically with a recitative, uttering his remarks, or stretching words, trying to convey them to everyone ... Vladimir Lensky - Sergey Shnyrev. So accustomed to your image that already from the first lines the boundaries of age and masculinity are erased ... and we see a naive and gentle "poet, a thoughtful dreamer ..." Irina Pegova –Tatyana. Tender and romantic. "... Wild, sad, silent, Like a forest doe, fearful." First, a touching and naive girl in love with unconsciousness. In the finale - a married, wise, although still romantic, woman. Tatyana’s Dream - a video, an interesting director’s decision. I do not like video sequences in theatrical productions, but in Onegin they do not distract from the performance, but immerse it in it. This is what a psychedelic effect on the viewer. Plus more music. I’m writing, but still goosebumps. And, of course, Sergey Chonishvili is the voice of Russia of the 21st century, which fascinates and delights. He reads for the Author, for himself and for that guy. Truly - the conductor of the play. How does he move around the stage, trying to convey to us the syllable of A. S. Pushkin in dance. Funny intersperses in the classic and well-known lines of the great novel sound funny epigrams of "our all". Thanks to the SAMITER and all the participants of the beautiful production for the opportunity to touch the beautiful.
“ I would not call this production traditional: the text of the novel is slightly shortened, but comments from my own account and Pushkin's epigrams are added. The music is amazing, the actors are not so much playing as they are reading the text from the stage, but they managed to get into the image so much that even knowing the plot thoroughly - well, and whoever does not know it - is experiencing it. An interesting solution with the insertion of the film at the place of Tatyana’s dream and a duel. If you are not afraid of the original reading and a bit of free handling of the classics, I recommend it.
“ Director Natalya Semenova, wonderful and beloved by the public actors: Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov, Irina Pegova, Sergey Shnyrev and composer Alexei Aigi with their ensemble “4:33” made from a textbook work tortured by the school curriculum completely elegant, subtle, ironic, topical and a very interesting production. This is a close interweaving of the text of Pushkin's “Eugene Onegin”, the wonderful music of Alexei Aigi and the video sequence broadcast on the big screen behind the stage. There are a lot of projects that fit this description, but I have not seen such a level as at the SAMi Theater. So everything is professional, clever, so the performance grabs attention, so the music takes somewhere, giving the spectacular energy to the performance. Pushkin’s usual text was taken in fragments, episodes do not always follow in the same order as the author’s, emphasis has shifted, it has become unusual, interesting, unexpected. But Pushkin’s epigrams and comments “on my own” added to the text gave the text somewhere cheerful hooliganism, and somewhere philosophy. Daniil Strakhov, who played Onegin, perfectly showed all the confusion and despair of Eugene, who received an answer to his letter. An answer he did not expect. Sergei Chonishvili, speaking from the author, was the heart of this performance, IMHO. He told, commented, comforted the characters, argued with them, "conducted" the ensemble, in short, played constantly, bravely! However, everyone was good. That rare case, when all without exception. Each in its place. In general, I love Irina Pegova in all roles, and her Tatyana was no exception. I don’t know much about Sergei Shnyrev, but when I saw him, I was impressed by the game. And, of course, the SAMi Theater project would not have been such, not only without the beautiful and beloved actors, but also without Alexei Aigi and his ensemble “4:33”. His music is half the drive from the production. Even for her sake alone is already worth going to the play. Moreover, the music does not drown out the text, and the text does not drown out the music, and this is very cool. They only occasionally intersect, and for the most part go separately from each other. Aigi's music creates an amazing atmosphere, possessing some stunning energy. The video sequence was also quite curious. I would not call it a movie, here it’s just a projection with drawings by Pushkin, his handwriting, but there are also game inserts. Live actors on the stage more captured my attention, although the combination of what was on stage and what was on the screen sometimes got to the point very well. I am very pleased that I watched this performance.
“ Perhaps Hamlet is one of the most famous philosophical works that raise the theme of life and death. No wonder it enjoys such popularity - after all, Hamlet lives in each of us, we all at least once wondered why we live and what is the point in life. The creators of the play “Hamlet STORY” showed us three of these modern “Hamlets” - a businessman (Sergey Shnyrev), a showman (Sergey Chonishvili) and an intelligence officer (Alexey Kravchenko). All three men are already crossing the border of middle age and therefore they think a lot, a lot, “to be or not to be?”. The performance takes place in three dimensions: on stage, in music and cinema. The characters read the texts of William Shakespeare with almost modern poems by Joseph Brodsky, David Samoilov, Arseny Tarkovsky, Bakhyt Kenzheev and Boris Ryzhiy. In parallel, frames from their life are displayed on the screen. Explosions and complex military operations by Alexei Kravchenko. Office in Moscow City, secretary with a bunch of papers and an empty office of a successful businessman Sergei Shnyrev. And the backstage of the TV show host Sergei Chonishvili. Why does one rich and successful person imagine how he goes out the window and flies from the roof of a skyscraper, while another thinks if he should swallow pills in the toilet of the television studio? True, all this will remain only in their head, and the tablets will actually turn out to be “Delicious Help” marmalade, but for some reason similar thoughts arise? Of course, the Hamlets reflect on love. It can be different: mutual and not, happy or tragic, falling in love with beautiful Ophelia or a vulgar hostel neighbor. Women leave a mark in the lives of heroes, and also affect their lifestyle and thoughts. And, of course, the music of Aleksey Aigi and his ensemble “4'33” ”: it is a real“ framework ”, a frame for the performance. Either a quick and frantic play of violins, or lingering sounds of a saxophone - instruments create a mood and help to plunge even deeper into the thoughts of the characters No wonder Alexei Aigi is considered the fourth “Hamlet” here, he is also a full-fledged participant in the action. Finally, in the final, the heroes come up with yet another “Shakespearean” thought: the whole world is a theater, and the people in it are actors. I could not find q even on the Internet: “Everyone played because they lived, I lived - therefore I played.” A very deep and complex quote that I thought about all evening :) The play goes on without intermission, only 1 hour 40 minutes, which fly by in an instant. But the topic is not simple, philosophical, “to think it over.” It seems to me that one should not go for entertainment and in the corresponding disorder, then you will definitely be delighted! I highly recommend 10 out of 10. Perhaps, along with Onegin, my favorite project from SAMi Theater.
“ Each Hamlet tells his story and their stories are crumbling to the viewer with poems, and prose, and an interesting video sequence (in one of the plots of which we meet all our “heroes” in ward No. 6), and all of them are united - the beautiful music of Alexei Aigi, the fourth "Hero" of this interesting performance. His music performed by the group “4:33” fills the whole space, setting the rhythm and mood, uniting everything that happens on stage into a single whole.
“ The magic of music over the magic of poetry. Not always understandable, but from this no less philosophical. Hamlet lives in each of us with his Ophelia. Somewhere in the closet is hidden by everyone Yorik. Each of us decides to be or not to be about ourselves every day. All this is complicated, evil, but so understandable. The interweaving of verses by William Shakespeare, Joseph Brodsky, David Samoilov, Boris Red, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Dmitry Prigov, Sergei Chonishvili is not the easiest thing to expect from a theatrical evening. But how easy it is to read poetry is not simple poets. How many subtext messages open in them when beautiful actors read. They are perceived quite differently than you read it yourself. And the brilliant music of Alexei Aigi. The fourth actor in the play. Sergey Chonishvili - one cannot remain indifferent from his game and expression. You believe in that anguish when Brodsky’s poems fly off his lips. Sergei Shnyrev - fatigue from being and perpetual running in a circle, so familiar to many. When you want to go on vacation or in a loop. Alexey Kravchenko - you are stony when you need to applaud because it hurts. Talking about the performance is difficult. He becomes very personal, almost intimate.
“ January 9, wedding day with her husband and as a gift - a joint trip to a magical event. It really was and was - magical - "The magic of music. The magic of the word." And it took place in a pleasant and familiar place - Moscow State Conservatory. Tchaikovsky. It is very important to note that this performance happens 2 times a year - in winter and summer. And I'm not surprised that the hall was full. When we went to the concert performance, we did not know what to expect. This format was a little familiar to me, but not to my husband. So, 3 actors and a group of musicians - Alexey Aigi, his Ensemble “4'33” and organist Konstantin Volostnov - “SAMI” got together and created something incredible. It was awesome 2 hours. When you don’t need glasses, because all that you just need to listen and enjoy it. 3 heroes, 3 different poets with different characters, different ways of life. Different music, different moods, different eras. And even the organ sounded limited in those verses, the life position that every hero told about Separately, I want to express my admiration for the music and its performance. It was so “mine”, so in harmony with my emotions and my perception of everything that was happening, just a complete delight!
“ Yesterday I was lucky to get to the play "The Magic of Music, The Magic of the Word". This is the third production of this theater that I watched, and it seemed to me the most musical. The organ created a special atmosphere (thanks to the brilliant organist Konstantin Volostnov)! There was a sense of Christmas miracle in the hall. By the way, out of habit, I almost left for MMMD, I saw in time that the performance was at the Conservatory)) Again, three wonderful readers: Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov and Sergey Shnyrev. And again Sergey Chonishvili is not enough for me, he is my absolute love in this trio, although Strakhov leaves all the flowers after the performance) Read more classics, Brodsky, Mandelstam, Red, Pasternak, although Sergei Chonishvili and Daniil Strakhov also read verses of their own composition. The music of Alexei Aigi this time was more melodic, and the performance itself was dedicated to love. I was also pleased with the atmosphere in the hall: all the seats were occupied, almost no one got into the phone during the performance, but the standing ovations were absolutely deserved. Well and a special highlight of the performance is added by the dance improvisations of Sergey Chonishvili, this time too they were) The performance is beautiful! Definitely recommend for viewing.
“ The final Christmas performance and at the same time the most striking, musical, emotional for me was the performance-concert “The Magic of Music The Magic of Word” on the stage of the Great Hall of the Moscow State Conservatory named after P.I. Tchaikovsky @sami_theatre Three actors (Sergei Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov and Sergei Shnyrev) read poetry by great poets of the 20th century: Brodsky, Pasternak, Mandelstam, Blok and others. They read it so soulfully that sometimes words mesmerized me, and Alexey Aigi’s music, the organ and ensemble “4`33``” plunged into the beautiful world of poetry. Many lines were easily recognizable, and some I heard for the first time. I was touched by a poem read by Daniel Strakhov: “In Russia they part forever. In Russia, cities are so far apart that I shudder, whispering “goodbye”. “I touch my hand by chance her hands ...”
“ “STORI Hamlet” directed by Natalya Semyonova Hamlet is an endless story in its versions. She is interesting to everyone: from sailors to senior officials. And no matter how the plot is interpreted, everyone sees in it his own dogma, his beginning and his hero. This is the whole charm of Hamlet, as a work that has not lost its relevance for the fourth century. An ambiguous version is offered by the theater “The Community of Actors, Musicians and ...” (@sami_theatr). With the help of interestingly selected verses by Joseph Brodsky, David Samoilov, Arseniy Tarkovsky, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Boris Ryzhiy, Dmitry Prigov, Sergei Chonishvili and others), interwoven with excerpts from the original Shakespearean work and under the spicy sauce of music by Alexei Aigi and the ensemble “4'33” ", The monologues of Hamlet acquire not only a modern sound, but even, sometimes, other, unexpected, emotional colors. Lyricism of Sergei Shnyrev, uncompromisingness of Alexei Kravchenko, impeccability of Sergei Chonishvili, seasoned with filigree d Alexei Aigi’s flickering and pleasant timbre and passion is an amazing male cocktail in which the sacred Hamletian “To be or not to be ?!” sounds like a lemon note. Why is it not unequivocal ?! special services officer - one day they are faced with the question “to be or not to be.” But this is not important, since everyone watches his own performance and draws attention to those ideas that are in tune with him right now.
“ It would seem that so many adaptations and productions were based on "Eugene Onegin"! It is not often possible to see something original in a positive sense. But the director Natalya Semenova and the artists of the SAMi Theater managed to show the whole depth and ambiguity of the novel in poetry, thanks to the original video, the music of the famous orchestra of Alexei Aigi and, of course, the brilliant cast. Four star artists: Daniil Strakhov, Sergey Shnyrev, Sergey Chonishvili and Irina Pegova, created unique images of the main characters of the novel. Daniil Strakhov - Onegin, who begins his role, suddenly, by reading his own letter to Tatyana - a scene from the end of the novel ... And then for an hour and a half the viewer will watch how exactly the venomous and cold dandy reached such a recognition. Sergei Shnyrev appears before us in the classical image of Lensky - a simple-hearted romantic with a butterfly on his neck. He is so naively in love with Olga, so sincerely considers Onegin his friend, that it is painful to watch him, knowing what his end will be. Irina Pegova seems completely unlike Pushkin’s Tatyana in type, more likely Olga. But, when she begins to speak on behalf of her heroine, BELIEVE her. Here she is - a young girl who writes her first love letter, here is the unfortunate lover rejected by Onegin, here she is frightened by a nightmare about the murder of Lensky, and here she is an adult princess. The image of Tatiana, perhaps, receives the greatest development in the novel, she is the only one who changes dramatically, while remaining herself. And, of course, the main character is the Author, whom Sergey Chonishvili introduced to us. How much is Pushkin in him, and how much is Sergey? Echidna, harsh, mocking, but so loving his characters and text. He allows himself to treat him very freely, throwing out pieces, inserting his remarks, brief explanatory reports or indecent quatrains - he screams, almost whispers. Together with the magical music of the orchestra, it is the author who helps to immerse himself in the plot as much as possible. It is noteworthy that the text of the novel was read almost entirely (in an hour and a half!), But did not like that several important points were not mentioned. Firstly, a visit to Tatyana Onegin’s library when she begins to realize that it’s not at all as perfect as she imagined, and her love becomes less “fanatical”. Secondly, the fact that Olga, after the death of Lensky, quickly married a visiting officer. And, thirdly, Tatyana’s transformation from a modest district girl into a “legislator of the hall”. Of course, it’s not enough to fit everything, but it seems to me that the extra 10-15 minutes in this case would go to the logic of the performance only to the benefit. In general, I am delighted, the audience around me, even the teenagers, was also delighted, the artists were called for an encore twice and presented a lot of flowers :) I highly recommend everyone to go: you are unlikely to re-read the novel in adulthood, and here to listen in such a wonderful performance and discover its new facets - I recommend.
“ I love Pushkin! All his work takes place on the sharpest edge of genius and mischievous hooliganism, which is so difficult to repeat! And Onegin in MMDM from the community of SAMI - the same - brilliantly hooligan, poetically piercing, loving - irrevocably! So, I’ll try to convey how it was: Onegin - of course Daniil Strakhov, the fans began to die already in the lobby, from Pushkin’s anticipation alone - Sergey Chonishvili. It seems to me that any of his movements, even his eyes, and everyone in the audience is subdued by the talent of this brilliant actor, they begin to catch his every movement! Lensky - Sergey Shnyrev. The whole audience laughs when it comes to curls to the shoulders, which he doesn’t have at all (the actors don’t dress in elaborate costumes, there are no wigs, no makeup, no scenery). But the directorial and acting work creates a masterpiece - a striking hit of the image of Lensky! Irina Pegova - Tatyana (she is Olga - in the video, which is logical - all the same sisters), without which there is no major conflict in Onegin (second Onegin-Lensky) Music by Alexei Aigi and the Ensemble “4'33” ”- artists all time is on stage, this is a special highlight of the theater - as always exciting, brilliant! Sometimes I was torn where to look - at the actors, at the musicians or on the screen. The film shot for the performance deserves special praise - it’s cool done, mounted, and most importantly, meaningfully expressive, enriches the performance very much! Of course, “Onegin” in the presentation of Natalia Semenova (director and artistic director) is not a role reading from “My Uncle the Most Honest Rules ...” to the finale. Rather, an analysis of the characters, a conflict if you like, the Game begins with Onegin’s letter, ends with a sudden remark from Pushkin-Chonishvili and laughter in the hall. The stanzas go out of order, being entangled in a bizarre whirlwind with melodies, scenes on the screen, dialogs, clear water, meaningful and even musical hooliganism, psychiatrist comments and explanations from the author. It’s impossible to talk about the performance with a clear and prosaic text, this is the case when it’s better to see it once (now this opportunity will only be February 29, 2020, just don’t delay the purchase, there will be no places at the time of the performance)! Full House Triumph Long applause and I continue and continue to applaud “Onegin” standing!

“ "Onegin" - again originally from the theater SAMI. How will you surprise the audience now? How to set the classics? Perhaps for someone the author’s interpretation is absurdity and stupidity, for someone a new life, attracting young viewers. Should the theater be conservative or modern? These and many other questions are raised by art critics and literary critics. What is my opinion? I attended the fashion show "Onegin" staged by the SAM Theater in the House of Music. A little ambiguous impression arose immediately after watching, but now I understand that this version is boring, interesting and unusual, a love story taking place today. And the school generation is happy to watch this performance, which in the new reading is a kind of best seller for adolescents of this era. Thus, the classic does not die and does not gather dust on the shelves of libraries, withstands the test of time. With great joy I remembered the lines of the poem, which I had learned by heart, but did not open from childhood: "Who are you, my guardian angel, Or an insidious tempter? But so be it! My fate from now on I hand you the tears, Before you I pour tears, Your protection I beg ... "These simple, timeless words, how many feelings they evoke now, when you live them meaningfully and savor each word, when you do not need to cram them into tomorrow's lesson in literature. After all, Pushkin is also nostalgia for school and childhood. Talented actors known for their films act as Onegin, Lensky, Tatyana, and Author. Sergey Chonishvili is incomparable, Irina Pegova is spontaneous and attractive, Sergey Shnyrev is ardent, and Daniil Strakhov is simply beautiful. I really liked the musical accompaniment of the performance, the lively humorous beautiful orchestra of Alexei Aigi, to the concert of which I would go with great pleasure. “There will be no intermission!”)) And the beautiful stylish video projections on the big screen inspired me.
“ It is obligatory for viewing)) A bright, dynamic reading of an immortal work by 4 brilliant actors. It will not be boring! The musical accompaniment of Alexei Aigi and "4.33" fit perfectly into the outline of the story. Daniil Strakhov shines, although I'm not his fan. Sergey Chonishvili - my endless love! What is his divine voice 😍 Irina Pegova and Sergey Shnyrev - charismatic and memorable. Boring classic!
“ Hamlet Story is a very unusual and controversial action. The music was fascinating, which at some point simply overlapped everything that was on the stage. The idea of the performance is very peculiar, music and poems made their way to goosebumps. Separately, I want to mention Sergey Chonishvili and his wonderful voice. If the music and verses were very organic, then the accompanying video was knocked out of the atmosphere and it all looked very psychedelic. In general, the performance really liked! But the concept of the footage did not arouse delight, at some point there was a desire to leave, but the music was so beautiful that we did not dare to do it! Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy such an unusual performance)
“ On the stage of the Moscow International House of Music, the ensemble 4'33 ", behind it are three Hamlets. Three Hamlets with different biographies and destinies, three friends or three patients in Chamber 6. Each Hamlet tells a story (see title). Three stories collapse on the viewer with poems, monologues, videos, and combine them - the beautiful music of Alexei Aigi. ⠀ Part of the plot on the big screen is the memories of the heroes, an attempt to look at their life from the side. Part of the plot is on the stage in the form of words and music. Formula in action: poetry, music, video. сп Hamlets sp they dig, drink drinks in the bar, dance, fight, suffer, love, and all this, like a million moves in the maze, leads to one way out: “To be or not to be.” ⠀ I would not say that this is a version of Shakespeare’s tragedy. view, this is an independent life drama, sometimes documented, where Hamlet is taken as the psychotype and its feelings. Vector vectors are striving from three points. Each goes its own way, penetrating the space with the energy of verses Brodsky, Tarkovsky, Red and Hamlet’s monologues. ⠀ But then, as actors, they brilliantly convey all the material. Bravo! Very much! Each Hamlet is a ball of power, ideas and search. And only your perception can try to unravel these tangles. We must certainly see how subtly and ironically the three Hamlets interact on the stage! ⠀ Special thanks to the musicians! Trumpet, trombone, piano, drums, cello, bass and, of course, violin. Alexey Aigi - just space! Such incredible energy and powerful talent. Thank. I love to watch people splash out creative energy on stage. ⠀ Strong actors, talented musicians and a beautiful House of Music - this is the recipe for a good evening.
“ After Onegin, I really wanted to see this performance, because according to reviews he is stronger, brighter, more emotional. MMDMM again, now the Great Hall, on the stage are chairs for actors, musical instruments, a screen for video. Once again, I can’t find fault with the work of Natalya Semenova, in the production as a whole. Only to modern poetry, in which the words are familiar, but there is no sense. Wonderful actors, their thrilling voices and attractive speech, but the meaning is elusive. For what it’s worth going to this performance, it’s for the music of the ensemble Alexei Aigi, which played a major role for me. Very emotional and impressive.
“ We watched this performance in January. Highly recommend! He is especially good in the big Svetlanov Hall of the House of Music. Amazing energy! It is incredibly cool to look at handsome famous male actors, listen to poems about their most intimate experiences and fly away into space from the dizzying music of Alexei Aigi!
“ Creepy poems, music that can be listened to endlessly. Three heroes, each with its own story. Music, on the one hand, combines words and verses, and on the other, is an equally equivalent hero of everything that happens. Heroes, plots, emotions change, and you realize that you do not have time to grab everything, digest it, think it over and really want to repeat. Magic succeeded)
“ How do you feel about poetry? I can listen, but I will not say that I like it very much, of the modern authors I know almost no one. But at the musical-drama project “The Magic of Music The Magic of Words” from SAM and Theater, she did not hesitate, because she had previously watched their “Onegin” and was impressed, director Natalia Semenova knows how to create attractive performances. Three actors played the roles of three nameless heroes, each living in his own world, but at the same time growing up, at the same time meeting the seasons. The actors took the stage one by one or all together, recited in silence or to the sound of music. The verses performed by Sergey Shnyrev were about the sublime, about the intangible, and the video sequence on the screen complemented these sensations. Daniel Strakhov conveyed the image of a rebel and a lifejacker, and his attire emphasized every word. Sergey Chonishvili hooked on erotic poems, his sensual voice stirred blood a little bit hoarsely, but just in a new way and with humor, he conveyed familiar lines - it is just necessary to hear! And in general, reading independently is one thing, but listening to the verses of Blok, Brodsky, Ryzhy and others with expressive and correctly delivered speech is a completely different thing. In all the performances of SAMiTeatr, music appears as a separate hero, this time it seemed to me that music is a hero, she is a woman, with a mood change peculiar to her, abrupt changes from whisper to scream, she will begin to speak without stopping and abruptly cut herself off. Alexey Aigi and his ensemble “4'33" ”play this role delightfully, new and familiar music falls in love with him, and every spectator in the hall appreciated the flow of energy from the band. The organ of 1899 fit perfectly into the general outline of the production of 1899 - this is one of the most significant organo-construction monuments of Europe, the last organ in lifetime of outstanding Aristide Kawaye-Coll, so loud, he is like the Universe in which all the heroes live, only “Toccata from the Gothic suite” by L. Boelman transformed the audience into pawns and carried it deep into cosmo The voice of the Universe was led by the famous organist Konstantin Volostnov. The performance was held at the Moscow State Conservatory named after PI Tchaikovsky in a stunningly beautiful large hall that you can watch for hours. Comfortable chairs, good seats and excellent acoustics. Only twice a year There is an opportunity to see this project, the next performance on January 9th.
“ The musical-dramatic project "The Magic of Music is the magic of the word" is a performance in which verses, music and light projection are combined. Three actors (Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov and Sergey Shnyrev) will read poems. “But,” you say, “poetry is something from the epoch of Mayakovsky and his yellow blouse. Well, or Block. In the extreme case - from the time of the Sixties, who collected full halls in the Polytechnic. But now, when a huge number of texts are posted online, when hundreds of commercials and audio books can be found there ... Has this kind of presentation not become outdated? ”Has not become outdated. Nothing will replace the contact of the reader and the viewer. In addition, hand on heart, in our age of speed, poetry is not a necessity. And if someone is wrong, they still mostly know the author of the golden and silver age of Russian poetry or the same people of the sixties: Rozhdestvensky Drunin, Tushnov, Yevtushenko. Actually, I have about the same situation. So, of the dozens of poems that sounded from the stage on July 9, I knew two. Mandelstam and Brodsky. All other poems became discoveries, especially since some of them were clearly written already in our, 21st century. Do you know a lot of modern poets? And they are. In general, as they say, the lines of A. Blok, V. Bryusov, V. Gumilyov, O. Mandelstam, S. Cherny, D. Samoilov, I. Brodsky, B. Kenzheev and V. Gandelsman are heard from the scene. B. Ryzhy, S. Gandlevsky, A. Kushner, D. Samoilov and A. Tarkovsky. All this magnificence is accompanied by pictures projected on the screen and music played by the composer and violinist Alexei Aygi by his Ensemble “4'33". ”This is a very unusual music. Jazz? No, although the trumpet and piano exist. Violin concerto? No, although there is a violin. Chorale? Not too, although there is an organ on the stage. This is something very peculiar, a whirlwind and calm, fire and ice. Minuses. Daniil Strakhov’s pants. No, I'm not joking. Imagine: three men go on stage. - smart, dandy, in black pairs, white shirts. And one - in bomzhevatymi pants and the devil a uniform bluzone. The last one is Fears. Yes, I am up to date with modern trends in fashion. But it looks like two gentlemen returning from a high-society reception have met by chance on the street with a vagabond.
“ All evening I tried not to miss something: the meaning of the poems, the music that intertwined with the text, the sounds of the organ and the video sequence. I understood that I did not understand anything, but I caught every word and note. For a minute it was impossible to relax, but everything that happens, I was impressed. Once it was fashionable to arrange literary evenings ... I like this tradition, these evenings are expensive, we need more of this! • When different verses sound from the stage - from lyrics to passion. And after you want to take a list, heard, poets and go to the library for a pile of books. • When you catch every word, because this is where the truth is born. And I want to recite poems again - this is some kind of forgotten art now. • When three famous and talented artists read poems - what, by the way, I bought it =) Elegant and strict Sergey Shnyrev. Cheerful and romantic Daniel Strakhov. Kolky Sergey Chonishvili with a velvety voice. In general, it seemed that they themselves caught the buzz from what was happening, and this was transmitted to the entire hall - and there were no summary places! And then we all lived in a single rhythm. • When a stream of poetry spills on you for two whole hours, and the music smoothly flows from the works of Alexei Aigi to the organ classics of Bach and Frank. Music is what connected the whole story, and I do not know what you expect more poetry or music. • When the explosive music of the ensemble "4'33" "turns into a dramatic performance. • When a violinist can play a complex composition and at the same time bounce up a meter. Unusual drive and sincere involvement in the process. • When the unhurried sounds of the organ performed by Konstantin Volostnov and the colored spots with which the organ is whimsically illuminated by the game, act fascinatingly. • When videotape pictures add emotional olives to this cocktail ... About the project “The Magic of Music. The magic of the word ”, directed by Natalia Semenova, can be told for a very long time, but it’s better to experience it yourself - a magnificent synthesis of music and musicians, poems and readers, light and color. Unfortunately, the performance is only a couple of times a year, but I plan to go again exactly =)
“ This summer I decided to attend events that I had postponed for a long time. One of them is the project “The Magic of Music, Magic of the Word” by the SAMI Theater: a bizarre fusion of music, light, poems of famous poets of the 20th century, and video effects. Suffice it to say that Daniil Strakhov, Sergey Chonishvili and Sergey Shnyrev acted as readers, and Alexey Aigi with his 4'33 '' ensemble and organist Konstantin Volostnov were in charge of musical accompaniment - this is the best guarantee of a high-class spectacle. For the concert (I will call the event a concert), poems were chosen by poets such as A. Blok, N. Gumilev, S. Cherny, I. Brodsky, and B. Kenzheeva, V. Gandelsman, B. Ryzhy and others who are little known to me. Strakhov, Chonishvili and Shnyrev go out one after another, follow each other ... Despite the variety of subjects and works, one can trace the main "line" of each of the characters. So, the hero of Daniel Strakhov - rather lyrical. He is young, talented, a little reckless, but kind and understanding. Sergey Chonishvili is more “adult”: his hero is more reflexive, reflects on the fate of the 20th century poet and the person as a whole. The hero of Sergey Shnyrev is like between them: he is passionate, denying stereotypes, ranging from love for the Motherland to emigration, between faith and disbelief. You can also highlight the main themes of the poems, they gracefully replace one another: this is the life of a creative person, and memories of childhood, and the hymn of youth, and poems about women, and, of course, about faith and God. It is noteworthy that the authorship of the poems is not indicated, and Daniel and Sergey read, including his own poems. Is the author really important? After all, the main thing is the idea and thought of the poet. And, of course, it is impossible not to say about MUSIC. Aleksey Aigi and his ensemble, as always, is at its height — sometimes slow and painful, sometimes expressive, but always expressive — the music draws words into the maelstrom and helps create a truly magical atmosphere. Thanks to the concert, I discovered not one interesting poem that I would like to re-read and think about, and received a lot of pleasant impressions.
“ Creepy poems, music that can be listened to endlessly. Three heroes, each with its own story. Music, on the one hand, combines words and verses, and on the other, is an equally equivalent hero of everything that happens. Heroes, plots, emotions change, and you realize that you do not have time to grab everything, digest it, think it over and really want to repeat. Magic failed) Thank you!
“ When my wife offered to go to the play "The Magic of Music. The Magic of the Word," I was skeptical. "Poems to music? Yes, and in the conservatory! Well, I do not know." Unusual format, and to poetry, I am almost indifferent. He agreed only because of Aleksey Aigi, he had long wanted to see and hear the ensemble “4'33”. ” It’s probably good that I didn’t expect anything from this evening, the more pleasant and unexpected was the acquaintance with the poetry of the 20th century, with popular theater and cinema actors Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov and Sergey Shnyrev. It’s hard to single out one person, but nevertheless I really liked the performance of Sergey Chonishvili that evening, especially the poems of his own composition. A talented person is talented in everything! And his poems are ironic, but very deep. Alexey Aigi was amazed at the performance, the drive, the most powerful energy, while the music does not conflict with the verses, but rather complements and reveals the images created by the actors. It was also nice to hear organ music. Due to the mixture of genres and styles, an image of timeless action was born. Indeed, what's the difference in which century this or that work is written, if the problems do not change over the centuries. If a person still looks up to the sky and asks: "Who am I? To be or not to be? Why am I born?" You can talk for a long time about the poetry of Prigov, S. Cherny, Pasternak, Brodsky, Alexander Kushner, Boris Ryzhy, Arseny Tarkovsky, and others, but you can see and hear yourself, and it is definitely worth it!
“ Alexey Aigi! He is awesome! And his ensemble “4'33 ''” 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 The energy of the musicians is crazy! Modern compositions are perfectly combined with high classics in a single concert, a bright interweaving of the ensemble and organ composition of the Conservatory👍👍👍 And when all this is perfected by the verses performed by Sergey Chonishvili, Sergey Shnyrev and Daniil Strakhova, MAGIC is born! “The magic of music. The magic of the word "Honestly, I do not like modern drama, poetry and in general most of modern art ... but люблю I love talented performers! And if a person reads with talent, let it be at least the instruction to the aircraft самол So on July 9, I got real pleasure! Sergey Chonishvili made me laugh when I read about the erotic side of being🙈 What a sarcastic, ironic, bold and easy it is. Sergei Shnyrev made me cry ... he became for me the discovery of the evening, I never knew his work anywhere ... And only with Daniel Strakhov, it wasn’t just me ... everything was clear, but not simple ♀️ About the video installation I keep silent only one question ... why? Many thanks to the community of SAMI. The next concert on January 9! Tickets are already on sale, do not miss!
“ It is finished! July 9, I got to the unusual performance "The Magic of Music. The Magic of the Word", and this title fully reflects the essence of what I saw and heard by me. Two hours in the Moscow Conservatory Sergey Chonishvili, Daniel Strakhov, Sergey Shnyrev read poems of poets of the 20-21 centuries. Once it was fashionable to organize literary evenings, the director Natalya Semenova and the actors of the SAM themselves proposed a new format of such evenings, in which music, word and video are interwoven. Even if you are a connoisseur of poetry, I am sure that you will not know all the verses. In addition, the author’s interpretation often draws a completely different image, puts accents differently and allows you to see completely different faces. The familiar poem by Sasha Cherny performed by S. Chonishvili sounded quite new. How Lezghin shash your camp, Mouth - a ruby red-hot! If I were the Turkish Sultan, I would have taken you for a wife ... Under the plane tree on a colorful carpet, We would play hide and seek. I would, bending down to the purple chador, Kissing your heels. Pearls would entwine you in the middle of a braid! Let people envy ... I would bring my heart to you On an enamel dish ... You looked down, are you silent? Are you scrubbing plaster? And why are you quietly like a mouse? At night you run to a Turk? He is a cursed Medina jackal! He is a devil! He is ignorant! The third day, I sharpen my dagger, On the fourth - Zarrezhu! I will shatter it into a small shashlik .... I will give spurs to Kabardin - And I will stretch a hood on my eyebrow, And I will shake you into the mountains. Alexey Aigi and the ensemble “4'33 ''” were responsible for the musical component of the play. I find it extremely difficult to resist the exclamations like: "Wow! Cool! Bomb!", But yes, it is! The performances of the ensemble "4'33 ''" are always a separate small show. and Alexey is a virtuoso and talented! Also in this performance organ works performed by Konstantin Volostnov sound. Music is a full member, and I do not know what you expect more poetry or music. Each actor with the help of poetry creates his hero. Sergey Chonishvili reads the verses of David Samoilov, Alexander Blok, Nikolai Gumelev, Sasha Cherny and his own poems. His hero is ironic, paradoxical reflecting on the world and about himself. The hero of Daniel Strakhov is young and romantic. He speaks in the words of the works of Boris Ryzhy, Alexander Kushner, Arseny Tarkovsky, Gennady Shpalikov. Shnyrev chose the poems of Brodsky, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Vladimir Gandelsman. I was very touched by a poem about Christmas. You can talk about this performance for a very long time, but better give yourself an evening and enjoy the poetry of music and the word. And I plan to go again in January.
“ The theater billboard in Moscow is vast and inexhaustible - you can go to the theater every day for a whole year without repeating yourself, and still there is still a lot left uncovered. But which of the watched performances can be remembered in a year? - The majority will be erased from memory completely, some names will cause only a shadow of memories, and only a few will leave an enduring aftertaste and a desire to see them more than once. The musical and dramatic project “The Magic of Music, the Magic of Words” by the SAM Theater is one of those few performances that do not let go for a long time, they are easily remembered and you want to watch them again and again, each time discovering something new, missed or not understood before, with this performance I want to share, bringing to him close friends. And it is not by chance that the word “magic” twice sounds in the title of the performance, this word, together with its synonyms magic, sorcery, fortunetelling, enchantment, witchcraft - absolutely exactly expresses what is happening on the stage. It would seem that something like this can be done by three readers, a small orchestra and an organ, but when great poetry is performed by talented actors, and musicians enchant and take listeners to magical worlds, then what can be called magic happens. Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov and Sergey Shnyrev performed by the great Russian poetry of the twentieth century. There are many poems: Brodsky, Mandelstam, Auburn, Pasternak, Gumilyov, Blok, Samoilov, Kushner ... Each of the actors has his own theme, his own choice of works, his attitude to poetry and to life. Sergey Shnyrev thinker and philosopher, Daniil Strakhov dreamer and lyricist, Sergey Chonishvili macho with a taste of irony. But not only powerful waves of poetry roll on the hall, but also wonderful music - the organist Konstantin Volostnov gave us music from Bach to Frank, and Alexey Aigi and the Ensemble “4'33” ”enchant, shrouding the hall with cosmic sounds. Looking at violinist Alexei Aigi and listening to his music is a separate pleasure worthy of a huge concert. But during the performance there is something else to see - the action is accompanied by a witch’s visual sequence, somewhere accompanying the action, and somewhere going beyond the limit of reality. And all this wealth was collected, invented and staged by the director Natalya Semenova - there are women in Russian villages! It is a pity that the performance “The Magic of Music, the Magic of Words” of the SAM Theater is shown only twice a year, I could watch it every month.
“ The magic of music, the magic of the word is the rare case when the name accurately reflects the essence of what is happening. Frankly, I'm not a fan of classical music, and I love poems selectively. The names of Sergey Chonishvili and Daniil Strakhov attracted me to the conservatory. Well, the recommendation of a friend played a role. I still didn’t know any other performers. This is the actor Sergey Shnyrev, the organist Konstantin Volostnov and the composer and violinist Alexey Aigi with his ensemble of musicians "4`33``" The first minutes of the performance were given to me with difficulty. But then the music sounded. And a miracle happened. Here is the magic. I do not know how to explain with words what I felt. This amazing music of Alexey Aigi carried me away into some kind of fabulous distance, through the looking glass. Closing my eyes, I felt like Alice, who was being dragged into a parallel world by a stream of beautiful sounds. They literally fell on me from all sides, picked up a stormy circulation and carried in a fantastic world. At first I tried to look at the screen, but quickly refused it, a special high was to listen to music with my eyes closed. Alexey put so much energy into the performance, the bow was already torn. A very unusual style of performance, and most importantly, absolutely fascinating music. And this, of course, is not only his merit, but the rest of the musicians of the ensemble. I especially liked the composition, which one of the trumpeters had also worked with his voice! It was a real fly away, the hall at the end just burst into applause. Well, being involved in the performance, and began to listen to the verses with pleasure. Each of the performers has chosen authors who are closer to him. Those closest to me were those that Sergei Chonishvili was reading. In general, it seemed that he himself caught the buzz from what was happening, and even when the other performers performed. The organ sounded differently for me as soon as I surrendered to this fabulous stream. In the Great Hall of the Conservatory there are excellent acoustics, it seems that music does not sound from the stage, but around and inside you. In general, I really enjoyed this hike.
“ A fresh look - "Onegin" in the variation of the "Commonwealth of actors, musicians and ..." (SAMI). The performance is deceptively simple. No decorations (only a huge screen at the back of the stage). No costumes. Actually, there is no obvious scenography either. There are four actors in quite modern clothes who stand on the stage more than they sit and sit, more than they walk. And the text, the same Pushkin, familiar to the last comma. It would seem that. But no! The text (both Pushkin and the Author) is played with the viewer: they sometimes beckon the familiar “My uncle of the most honest rules ...”, then they confuse, starting from the end, mixing scenes and events, then they make me feel lost in the maze of phrases ( ? Or Pushkin, but I do not remember? Or not "EO"? And who said that ?!). And what a face! What voices! These people do not need costumes and makeup, they know a different secret of reincarnation. Irina Pegova, Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov and Sergey Shnyrev exist in the “gave a free novel” and in our reality. They conquered the hall immediately, not giving a chance to escape for a minute, from the first to the last word spoken from the stage. And, of course, music. Also on the verge between here and there, now and sometime. The composer Alexey Aigi wrote his Onegin, without losing the roots and connections. The music and the ensemble that plays it live, right on the stage, are full participants in the action. During this performance, I was presented with Pushkin. The eternal hooligan, who died unacceptably early, and a 220-year-old monument to himself. The head of the school textbook and "son of a bitch." Genius And why am I all this? It is urgent to re-read "Eugene Onegin"! And find those texts that "non-Pushkin"! And look again!
“ Live music. The orchestra cheerfully enters, enhances the drama and gives the performance optimism. Composer Alexei Aigi, on the stage with his Ensemble "4:33" creates. It is as biting and poetic as Pushkin himself. You will pay attention to him when you watch the play. The cast draws attention. Sergey Chonishvili as an unreliable or reliable narrator, he decides. It seemed that the real Sergey was such a boy, who was able to empathize, support and at the same time was serious. I caught myself thinking that for a moment I stopped delving into phrases, I just enjoy my voice. And not only Sergey, Irina Pegova is a single star on the stage, the only woman, and also the only woman who can play Tatiana so subtly. Of course, the arrows Daniel Strakhov and Sergey Shnyryov make us pay attention to ourselves. Unique types, strong, meaningful. For such a statement had to answer the director Natalia Semenova three times called on the bow. The audience is delighted, I hope the actors enjoyed playing for such an audience.
“ Surely each of us remembers from school at least a few lines from the Pushkin novel in verse “Eugene Onegin”. This is perhaps the most sought-after work from all Russian classics: films are shot, operas and ballets are staged. The drama theater is also not lagging behind - for a year I saw three performances of “Eugene Onegin” on the stages of Moscow theaters. And here is the musical-poetic composition of the “Commonwealth of Actors, Musicians and ... (SAMI)” which was put by Natalya Semenova. As a result, it was not just the reading of poems in roles to music, but the comprehension of the Pushkin text, reflections on the characters and the fate of the characters. The play sounds not only the text of "Eugene Onegin", but also Pushkin's epigrams, and the poet's comments on the novel. On stage are a brilliant quartet of artists: Sergey Chonishvili (author), Irina Pegova (Tatiana Larina), Daniil Strakhov (Eugene Onegin), Sergey Shnyryov (Vladimir Lensky). And Pushkin is a full-fledged hero here - he comments on the actions of the characters, then enters into a dialogue with them. But not only Pushkin’s characters are present on the stage, but also Alexei Aigi’s group “4'33" "- an integral part of the play and the fifth participant of the performance. In addition, the performance is also accompanied by specially made short films giving additional depth to the action. B the result is a polyphonic composition enveloping the audience and sucking in the whirlpool of feelings, passions and thoughts. The performance is permeated with admiration and respect for Pushkin’s talent, which is presented here both ironic and sensitive to them, worrying about their heroes. The play takes only an hour and a half, but during this time, the characters of “Eugene Onegin” become closer and clearer to us - they begin to be perceived as our contemporaries, almost like close friends. And indeed for almost two centuries that have passed since the day of the novel's release, people didn’t change much - love, death, loyalty and betrayal worry us just as much as people of the eighteenth century.The fantasy of the director, the skills of the actors, the talent of musicians makes this performance absolutely wonderful and unforgettable.
“ When is the performance considered successful? When, after viewing it, I want to become better, more beautiful, kinder, to do something useful. That such an impression on me was made by the play “Onegin” from the creative association “SAMI Theater”. Director Natalia Semenova, a great clever. What is in this performance? Magic and magic. The well-known texts of Pushkin and the unknowns of Nepushkin, the music of talented Alexei Aigi and his ensemble 4'33, the velvety voice of Sergey Chonishvili, the Onegin-Lensky opposition, played by Daniel Strakhov — Sergei Shnyrev, the girlish intonations in Irina Pagovoy’s voice. Behind the actors is a screen on which a video series specially created for the play is being projected. Aigi turns around in his chair with his back to the viewer and follows the image. Time! The screen fades, Aigi swings his bow from the violin sharply, the music stops, Chonishvili scribbles an automatic burst of Pushkin's rhymes, the voices of other actors connect to it and the drama unfolds. This contrast between Onegin and Lensky comes to the fore, so the duel becomes the apotheosis. Why did Onegin kill his friend Lensky, well, why ?? After all, he did not do anything wrong to him. More like the accumulated irritation from the village life, from the lack of work and business, from the lack of a woman who could support, light stress from Tatiana's ingenuous confession and her expectations. And most importantly, from SKUKOTY, everything is boring, nothing is interesting. Fearfully. The performance is very strong, famously twisted. I saw in the hall of teenagers. As a first acquaintance with the work will not work, but more for those who want to be surprised by the new approach to the classic material. Something like this.
“ Throughout the performance on stage, the Ensemble "4:33" by Alexei Aigi. These people conquered me! Starting with the fact that each of the performers is incredibly charismatic and ending with how they perform incredibly beautiful music, which can be very useful, it complements this or that scene of the performance. Bow and bravo! About the play. Despite the fact that the author’s text by A.S. Pushkin saved, this is not a classic statement. Rather, the combination of the main fragments of the novel, music, video series, Nabokov’s comments and even a small rap on Pushkin’s poems. The video series, in most cases, was not at all close to me. I suppose the idea was to convey to the audience certain feelings and associations, but my brain stubbornly discarded all this and refused to associate anything. But the association of Pushkin’s image of Onegin perfectly coincided with the image of the artist Daniil Strakhov. Outwardly attractive, serious, stately, proud, at the same time somewhere deeply hidden, but feeling sadness, despair, longing and loneliness. Deadly cocktail! No doubt - this is the true Onegin! But how does Sergey Shnyrev look very courageous to play Lensky? Intelligent, educated, beautiful - yes, philosopher - yes, noble - yes, but “a poet, a thoughtful dreamer” ?, naive ?, “curls black shoulder”? - no, no and NO. Sergey Shnyrev is a good cartoon for eighteen-year-old romance Lensky. The author - Sergei Chonishvili - luxurious, ironic, internally free, with a velvety, pleasant, recognizable voice, also, in my opinion, perfectly matches the image. Irina Pegova, bursting with energy, mischief and pressure, did not seem to me like Tatiana. This is not a timid thin doe, fragile and sad, which Tatiana seems to be. But each director probably has his own vision of the characters. Artists read the text without pathos, without false, nonbanal, with an inner deep understanding. You hear so much! And at the same time, again and again you are convinced that a lot of this novel is “for all times”.
“ It was interesting to see talented actors and musicians on stage. Excerpts from the novel were read by Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov, Sergey Shnyrev and Irina Pegova. I liked very much, touched the musical part of the program performed by Alexei Aigi and ensemble 4'33 for the soul strings. I would also like to note the video series. He quite tactfully fit into the production, did not delay much attention on himself, and neatly supplemented the plot. Initially, I tried not to perceive the actors reading the text of Pushkin as heroes of the novel. And the images of Tatyana and Lensky did not try on I.Pegova and S.Shnyrev. These actors talented, bright and emotional (especially S. Shnyrev) told the viewer about the experiences, feelings of the characters, but not associating themselves with them. At least that's how it felt, saw and heard by me. A little internally argued with Irina). In some passages for my taste the text was unreasonably quickly read. (I played Tatiana on the stage, of course, at school) and dared to compare))). For these nostalgic school memories a special thanks to the # SAMA-Theatre team. But it’s impossible not to see Onegin in Daniel Strakhov. Full compliance with the image of the hero. Onegin, I recognized you.) It is amazing how, like Daniel, without changing suits and make-up, it turns out to change the look during the performance: from a cynical, self-satisfied, well-groomed handsome to an exhausted, suffering, who lost something important in a person's life. Daniel is a very good actor, many years ago he conquered us with his girlfriend Dorian Gray in the theater on Malaya Bronnaya. I was glad to see D. Strakhov in the image of Onegin. And, of course, in the production of "Onegin" is beautiful Author. Mimicry, gestures, intonation, irony ... Voice of Sergey Chonishvili! You can listen to it endlessly. He fascinates, fascinates and immerses in the plot. All the energy from the actor is incredible! When musicians played, he conducted and danced. He was next to the heroes, now he empathized, sometimes laughed, then ironically, then condemned. The present Author, bravo! The inserts were also funny - caustic comments and jokes on the subject of Pushkin’s works. I liked the performance very much, it was nice to remember my favorite work at school and see it in a new way, hear it and feel it.
“ I really, really wanted to get on the play "Hamlet STORY". And not at all because I love the interpretation of the classics in a new way. My goals were very mundane (or maybe just sublime) - I dreamed of seeing that person, only one phrase of which I once very much supported: "I give my voice to Nyura Sharikova." It was Sergey Chonishvili. It was he who voiced the project about people with diabetes Diachallenge, where I participated. Voice Chonishvili knows each of you. But not everyone just knows that it is he. To hear Sergey not from the TV screen, but live is worth a lot. “What a voice, I already have goosebumps,” said my friend. “This is Chonishvili ...”, I gasped, enchanted by the game, not with my voice. No, more precisely the life of Sergey Chonishvili on the stage. Guys, this is such a charisma, this is such an energy !!! This is the height of professionalism. I do not understand at all in the acting game, but, looking at the stage, I finally understood what real theater means, real game of professional actors. I danced to the beat with Sergey, catching the buzz from the 4:33 group and the composer and violinist Alexei Aigi! I never cry over movies. But I am crying over books, and, yes, I first burst into tears, listening to Chonishvili ... God, such emotions ... Yes, # HamletSTORY is a difficult thing. For those who like to analyze and think later. Who loves and understands (emphasize this) literature. Thank you so much for this evening to matchless Sergei Chonishvili (and thank you for the voice of our project), driving Alexei Ayge and the group “4:33”, unexpectedly romantic Alexey Kravchenko, very elegant Sergey Shnyrev, director Natalia Semyonova bow
“ Best I've seen lately! "To be or not to be? That is the question! ”- who does not know these lines? Even my twelve-year-old son already knows, because this year he read the tragedy of Shakespeare's Hamlet with him. Just think about it, 500 years have passed, and people all continue to ask this question. Each is responsible in its own way and for each "Be!" I visited the play “Hamlet Story” on Monday - I don’t have enough words to convey all the emotions. In whatever new appearance a new Hamlet revives, he is always ready to pay a high price for the opportunity to be himself. About this is a new unusual play by Hamlet, directed by Natalia Semenova, in which the texts of William Shakespeare with the poems of Joseph Brodsky, David Samoilov, Arseny Tarkovsky, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Boris Ryzhyi were combined in the most daring way ... Sergey Shnyrev. Each artist shows his Hamlet: a businessman, an officer of the special services, a showman. The fourth Hamlet is the composer and violinist Alexey Aigi. And in this performance for me personally, Alexey overplayed everyone in the energy industry, there really are moments when words are not necessary! Sergey Chonishvili - goose bumps from his playing, Sergey Shnyrev - irony and weariness from life, Alexey Kravchenko - it was on his monologue that I began to cry ... This performance should be watched more than once, re-read poetry, maybe even where be specially prepared in advance. Deep, energy-capacious, extraordinary performance. Some completely new genre of organic connection of the most powerful game, music, video series. I highly recommend everyone! Itself definitely go again!
“ I don’t go to the adult theater very often, rather rarely! I'm more on concerts! And if I go to theaters then to musical performances! So it turns out lately! I love music! This probably explains my delight from this performance! "Onegin" from SAM (Commonwealth of Actors, Musicians and ..) in the House of Music! Having read in the program that “music is a separate, special hero of the story.” I thought yes, yes, yes, we will see, we will listen! But when the ensemble 4.33, under the direction of Alexei Aigi, struck, everything became clear! Clearly this is my new love! You know that feeling when the soul turned and then rolled up? Well, here it is! In general, all the musical compositions from Onegin really want to drag yourself to the playlist! And listen, listen, listen ... Or, together with the video series, review them as clips! Video series is chic by the way! Very interesting move - to show the key scenes of the piece in this way! The first impression was that this is a fairy tale to the accompaniment of an orchestra! Do you know now many such projects !? Where the orchestra plays, the actor reads and still sand animation background! Well here without sand, but a fairy tale! For adults! ☺ Actors! I went to see Irina Pegova! I love her, since the days of “Walk” Alexei Teacher! Now I love even more! How she could show Tatiana's transformation from a timid girl to a woman who was held! In appearance changed a couple of strokes: a necklace, but a hairstyle is stricter! And as if two different people! Sergey Chonishvili plays the author, comments, which help to better understand the meaning, it is obvious for people like me, who vaguely remember the original! Well, what is his voice! Oh, crawl! And his dancing! I would, on the site of the organizers, make a dance floor, because looking at Sergey’s fiery dances, I also want to start dancing! Daniel Strakhov (Onegin) and Sergey Shnyryov (Lensky) 100% hit in the images! Two opposites that were destined to meet! And of course BRAVO director Natalia Semyonova! After all, it was thanks to her that they organically joined together: the brilliant text of Pushkin, the amazing music of Aigi and the magnificent acting game of Pegovoy, Chonishvili, Strakhov and Shnyreva! I liked the theater hall in the House of Music! It is small and with a good rise in the amphitheater! With 3 rows of the amphitheater it was seen perfectly!
“ “Tatiana (Russian soul, Not knowing why) She loved the Russian winter with her cold beauty ...” we wondered back in school. And now, this memorized text, I hear from the lips of Irina Pegovoy. With such penetration, she reads him that, until the end of the performance, the pain for Tatiana’s fate does not let go. Yes, she sincerely loved and honestly confessed to Onegin (Daniel Strakhov), but he nobly refused ... Years later, Onegin saw her already held, with titles. And now he is writing a love letter to Tatiana. To which Tatyana responds with a pain in her heart: “I love you (why be cunning?) But I am given to another; I will be faithful to him all the time. ”The image of a married Tatiana — a long dress, a black necklace, and collected hair — is accurately shown. “Onegin” in MMDM is not just a school play. This is the music of Alexei Aigi and the Ensemble "4'33 ''", which acts as a separate hero of this story. It conveys all the passion and pain of the love of heroes. This kinorad, which goes in the background and proves once again that the story, written in the 19th century, is relevant now. We are all a bit Onegin, Tatiana, Lensky (Sergey Shnyrev). Sergey Chonishvili, whose voice is the official voice of the STS channel, is telling the story on behalf of the Author, bewitching with his timbres. His charisma captivates the plot to the end of the performance. I was sitting not far from the stage and saw all the emotions of the actors, even tears somewhere ... Bravo to the director Natalia Semyonova for a brilliant production! Definitely go watch! Once again BRAVO !!!
“ Reading the reviews of the audience, I could not understand why almost all of them were looking for portrait resemblance of actors with characters of the novel and “condemned” the director's choice of Irina Pegova for the role of Tatyana (plump) and Sergey Shnyreva for the role of Lensky (too old). But Daniel Strakhov for all is just the perfect Onegin. But Strakhov disappointed me ... I can not say that it was his fault or the director, but the image of his constrained, without emotional Onegin (even already in love with Tatiana) was so unconvincing !!! I love this actor, I saw his theatrical works (for me he is the best Dorian Gray), but here something, from my point of view, did not work out .... Sergey Shnyrev was just beautiful (with what kind of irony he played the role of an enthusiastic poet Vl. Lensky !!!), but he was offended enough - he was killed in a duel ... I liked Irina Pegova very much, who presented herself in two images of her heroine - a village girl who read French novels and secular ladies. With minimal make-up only intonationally, during the time of the action, it changed simply beyond recognition! Bravo!!! But, first of all, Sergey Chonishvili and Aleksey Aigi "lit"; this performance would not have taken place without them !!! The music of Alexei Aigi and the performance of it by the composer himself and his ensemble provide the emotional intensity of the whole action. From time to time there was just mad energy from the stage !!! Sergey Chonishvili ... Oh, this audible voice heard daily from the TV !!! Oh, this is an unsurpassed skill so free on the stage !!!! The performance looks at one go. It turned out that Natalia Semenova is very stylish, ironic, alive !!! Her nontrivial reading of the novel fascinated me !!!
“ An unexpected acquaintance with the project "SAMI". Classic in a modern way, but still a classic. It is inexplicable, but charming. Just good actors, just read the text familiar to everyone from school years, simply ... Yes, not everything is so simple. A completely different view of things. A very different musical story. I would recommend visiting this particular setting to schoolchildren in order to understand and feel the beauty of the Pushkin syllable.
“ What can you say about Onegin? And about "Onegin"? :) You will say, Pushkin, and I will say Natalya Semenova - the director of the play "Onegin", which I visited yesterday and the House of Music. And again, I suddenly delighted. This is the second performance of this director. "Hamlet STORY", "Onegin" and still left to visit the "Magic of Music words." In the first performance, I had clear parallels with Onegin, although there were not even hints. Yesterday, this sense of interconnection grew into the conviction that it was a trilogy. I have already watched two performances. One left. Straight as a collection I collect. Guys, I recommend, if possible, go to three performances. Well, two for sure that I visited, I recommend. But, I repeat, things are strong, emotionally complex and make you think later. Children would not recommend to take. I really want to "Magic", there also plays Chonishvili, by the way. I will also go to the concert of Aleksey Aigi and the ensemble "4'33" in May, under whose arrangement these performances take place. Everyone who went with me to them, now fans of the musical group. :) And yesterday Sergey Chonishvili, Daniil Strakhov, Irina Pegova, Sergey Shnyrev performed on the stage. It was cool!!! .
“ I would like to thank the actors and musicians for their work! Fears - great! Wonderful performance! I really liked! Recomend for everybody !
“ The performance turned out to be both a revelation, and surprise, and pleasure. It was possible to guess only that it will be cool! High quality, original and spectacular. Form, feed and overall concept were completely unexpected. "Eugene Onegin". We all remember him from school. For me, in spite of all the passions, he was always something monumental, thorough, unhurried, like long winter evenings by the fireplace. And then suddenly they took and cut off most of the novel, leaving the very thing. A pair of Onegin’s dialogues with Lensky, a pair of Onegin’s monologues, a bit of Lensky, conversations with the author, who as if he hadn’t decided yet whether he would leave the novel or change something, creating the feeling that the novel is happening right here and now. And, of course, two famous monologues of Tatiana! Without them in any way. Not at all. So here. Surprisingly, in this condensed version of the novel fit almost entirely. On the contrary, such a concentration even more clearly highlighted each of the characters. The viewer was not distracted by the contemplation of nature, by philosophical reflections. The spectator intently caught every gesture, every sound, every word! Oh, what a word it was! The power of Pushkin's talent covered the head! Bliss! What a bliss it is to hear Pushkin when he is read so talented and with such love! And it is immediately clear why there are neither scenery, nor “epoch-appropriate” costumes in this performance. All this is superfluous! Superfluous, when there is the main thing: the genius of Pushkin and the talent of actors. To enhance the effect, only the video sequence and the magic of music by Alexei Aigi and Ensemble 4'33 "Thank you!
“ A date with "Onegin" turned out unexpected and exciting. There are probably two main surprises. The first - Pushkin text sounds great, not outdated at all. All household details and archaisms are discarded, left timeless and relevant. The second - the novel is not about what you thought about years ago, when you last read it entirely. And what is the reason - the stage interpretation or personal changes over the past years - I will not judge. Most likely, both. Suddenly, I realized that Onegin was a novel about the horror of idle life, without meaning, without purpose, without work. About how such idleness and laziness of the soul turns into tragedy and death. And the main line was Lensky, not Tatiana. There are four actors and eight musicians on stage. Pushkin - Sergey Chonishvili - wearily cynical. This is of course not Pushkin, but an appropriate and convincingly presented his hypostasis. Lensky - Sergey Shnyrev. In some places it is a young enthusiastic poet with the intonations of the early Yevtushenko, in places - a middle-aged actor, enthusiastically telling about his hero. Tatyana - Irina Pegova. Almost not at all Tatiana, often an actress telling about Tatiana. It is like. Onegin - Daniel Strakhov. The image was not understood, perhaps because Pushkin Onegin turned out to be very unexpected. The stage composition is for me five plus, although someone may be distorted by insertions (I think 10-20% of the text on the stage). The inserts seemed to me not only appropriate, but also contributing to the element of surprise: it is a pity that the sources of the inserts have remained unidentified. The music (Alexey Aigi and the ensemble 4'33) provides the emotional intensity of the whole action, and makes it more appropriate than the actors would have. But music was not enough for me. Most of all, I remember the moment when under the exclamation from the orchestra "intermission will not be" the musicians seem to be breaking free from the framework of the performance and soooo playing. Finally, the video sequence also carries part of the emotional load, Tatiana’s dream is amazingly resolved: not according to Pushkin’s text, but in accordance with its internal logic.
“ The other day I visited the House of Music at the play "Onegin". In spite of the modern production and lack of scenery, four wonderful actors and the ensemble “4.33” made the performance unforgettable! Sarcastic author represented by Sergey Chonishvili with his unique timbre of voice, bored by Onegin performed by Daniil Strakhov, the exalted poet Lensky represented by Sergey Shnyrev and tender Tatyana played by Irina Pegovoy. Many are afraid to go on modern productions of classical works, because they believe that everything can be ruined. But, as you know, I love theatrical experiments. And I did not regret a bit! The SAM team was very careful about the Pushkin word, story and stories, and at the same time, the actors interleaved the story with their comments, inserted the famous quotes to the novel rather to the point - sharp, humorous, sometimes cynical. And you know, the performance has not lost anything from this, and I would even say that I won it very much! And the awesome music of Alexei Aigi and the ensemble “4.33” perfectly fit into the narration. If all this is combined, then we get a great performance “Onegin” - where the classics mixed with modernity, but it did it so neatly and imperceptibly that it absolutely did not cause rejection! Bravo!
“ In a couple of words - this is such a sketch on the subject, quite original (solid cherries on the cake) and at the same time very laconic (just an hour and a half). So, if you are looking for something stylish, modern, rather short and conducive to a pleasant conversation to follow, then this is it. But keep in mind that if you have certain stereotypes in your head regarding the main characters of the story (and who do not have them), then for a start, the actors will bring down all the canons (well, almost everything) in terms of the image and character. When you (15 minutes later) get used to it, it turns out that you lack words first (Pushkin becomes more and more genius every year), then music (oh, here is SUCH music), then ironic remarks (because Sergei Chonishvili gives them out I want to listen endlessly), and in the end - in general there will be a little, and everything will end too quickly, and you just get a taste, and hang your ears, and your soul will tune in to the beautiful. Summary: Good. But a little. And I really want to reread Pushkin
“ It was very unexpected to hear Onegin's letter to Tatiana at the very beginning of the performance, unexpectedly and well, the non-standard supply of non-linear presentation attracted attention from the first minutes, and interest only grew. This is in fact not a performance, but something that was widely practiced earlier on stage venues - a literary and musical composition with the reading of a literary work by one or several actors and actresses with musical accompaniment and, possibly, video frames and dance numbers. "Onegin" read: Author - Sergey Chonishvili. Beautiful timbre of voice, as if created for reading; ironic, intelligent, strong, liberated image, powerful energy. Sergey danced to the music of the orchestra, conducted, as if unable to restrain the author’s inner creative power, bursting out and putting on the words, now the musical theme. Onegin - Daniel Strakhov. Very beautiful and elegant in appearance; cold, disappointed in the life of a sociopath, has long lost its meanings and goals and brutally avenges unwitting victims for his boredom. Tatyana - Irina Pegova. Sincere, impetuous, open girl, more timid in his youth and extremely strong, strong-willed, intelligent princess, denying Onegin. Lensky - Sergey Shnyrev. A comic but kind parody of a young poet who reads deliberately theatrical with howls and switches to a natural manner of reading, talking about Lensky from the side. They read excellently, the images are thought out, each word is felt, that what, how, why, is not a mechanical reading, but a real game with a deep understanding of images. I was already familiar with Alexey Aigi's music, he is a popular modern composer, the ensemble "4" 33 "played beautifully. In some places it seemed to me that an energetic dynamic musical theme is not always suitable for illustrating this story, but on the other hand it’s fresh, interesting You can listen to Tchaikovsky in the opera house, and unusual music seems to build a bridge between the past and the present. The video sequence is funny, it’s pages with Pushkin’s painfully familiar handwriting, illustrations for Onegin, and scenes with actors, as if from strange x dreams. The epigrams of Pushkin himself and a few comments were added to the text, as if looking from today.In general, a very pleasant impression, was delighted with the work of the actors and director Natalia Semenova, who treated the great text with such respect and love, liver, makes discuss the deeds and motives of the characters, admire the extraordinary poetic lyric digressions, psychological depth, light humor and the irony of the "sun of Russian poetry."
“ Great acting, everyone loved it! Unusually, fresh, bright, new rethinking of the classics. The performance is accompanied by beautiful music and video. I would like to recommend your favorite Pushkin as a fresh reading!
“ I looked at the Moscow International House of Music, another project directed by Natalia Semyonova - the performance “Onegin”. It is nice to hear Pushkin’s novel in poems, known from childhood, in a modern way. There are no scenery, no costumes of the XIX century, and only four actors play: Author Sergey Chonishvili Onegin Daniil Strakhov Tatyana Irina Pegova Lensky Sergey Shnyryov But there is music by Alexei Aygi performed by him and his magnificent ensemble “4`33``”. There is a video specially made based on the novel, there is light music. All this together makes it necessary to live and comprehend this Pushkin story again. I really liked Daniel Strakhov as an empty and cynical Onegin. Indeed, such a polished handsome man could easily turn the head of a romantic country girl, such as Tatyana Larina. And quite differently perceived now, in adulthood, the story of the duel between Onegin and Lensky, which occurred because of such a trifle as Onegin's flirting with Olga. Only 200 years have passed since the writing of the novel, and how society has changed! It is now difficult to even imagine that a man, because of minutely courting his bride, voluntarily went to a deadly risk! After all, the duel of those times is not a joke, then they were shooting almost from ten steps, and at that distance only the blind would not get into the enemy! But, it is necessary to think, in those days, men of the noble class vouched for their words and deeds with literally their own blood, and even life. Sometimes you wonder if it is good that now everything has changed? I got a great pleasure from the performance, I even wanted to re-read Pushkin again.
“ A brilliant acting game!
“ Perfectly! Amazing! It is necessary to present the classics to the Z generation in this way. I would be glad to see such a boring piece in my youth. And yes, it would be interesting to compare what is in the original, what was cut or added. Is it possible to call this event a full reading of a work? It is impossible. Concert? Not. This is a performance-concert, in which the actors read Pushkin's verses, and Aleksey Aigi and the Ensemble “4'33" "help our perception. And how the ensemble did it! Music is half the battle. It was also amazingly implanted music Emotions intensified: soaring up and galloping along the fields next to Onegin and Lensky on their horses. pompous suit They are here and not. Only the sounds of music and the voices of the readers. And from this symbiosis, the work, which of course is not fully read, the poem began to play, it came to life and became different. , not shaking the air. Honor was more expensive than a state, more than a passion ... Honor was an important component of the lives of women and gentlemen. Could they convey this actors? Did Irina Sergeyevna manage to bring something to the devs? Question. But I really want to believe that at least one of ten sank. Whether Chonishvili, Shnyryov and Strakhov were able to settle a grain of thoughts about honor in men's minds. There are no dull pink romantic notes in this reading. No romantic flyers of bored people. There is a sea of healthy skepticism, and subtle irony. And that is just fine!
“ Visited "Hamlet STORY" January 16. An incredible impression, I will try to tell you why, Three heroes - a showman (Sergey Chonishvili), an intelligence officer (Alexei Kravchenko), a businessman (Sergey Shnyrev) - sometimes funny, sometimes ironically talk about the eternal and try on the image of a hamlet, communicating from the scene as razor the verses of the great Russian poets: Joseph Brodsky, Boris Ryzhy, Arseny Tarkovsky, Dmitry Prigov, Sergey Chonishvili, etc. The fourth hero - Alexey Aigi and ensemble 4'33 ”- breaks into every monologue with a violin that carries away the heart and soul, which the structure of each of Hamlet on stage. It is difficult to call "Hamlet Story" a classic performance. Here, the charisma of popular Russian actors, brilliant musical accompaniment and a video series that tells us between the lines the fate of each of the characters on the stage came together. Here we meet a businessman who comes to the office every day, but thinks of saying goodbye to life; here is the “other hamlet” of Alexei Kravchenko, who has long lost the orientation of the game, in which he has to play the main role; but the cynical showman, that for him life is a game? There is, of course, an appeal to Ophelia. Each hamlet has its own way, as it should be .. The performance was a breeze: the sign poems “Don't leave the room” (Joseph Brodsky), “The tram turned onto Titova street” (Boris Ryzhiy), Alexey Aigi’s favorite music and crazy charismatic readers. The moral is that the search for answers to the questions of the Shakespearean hero is still significant for each of us. The performance makes one think about the eternal, what price are willing or not ready to pay in order to be ourselves ...
“ This is not the traditional Shakespeare's Hamlet, which many of us, and perhaps not even once, have been seen on the theater stage. This is the story of Hamlet. Reflections on Hamlet. Trying to understand who he is, this Hamlet! Attempt of each of the actors to try on this role. And an attempt to show us the modern Hamlet, even the four modern Hamlets at once. A very successful attempt, I tell you. And yes, which of these Hamlets will be the most-most, each of the spectators decides for himself. Not only Shakespeare sounds from the stage, but also Joseph Brodsky, David Samoilov, Arseny Tarkovsky, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Boris Red, Dmitry Prigov, Sergey Chonishvili .. Wherever and in what place people live, they are tormented by similar experiences, thoughts, emotions. That is why Shakespeare's play does not lose its relevance. That is why it is brilliant, because it is timeless. And the poems of modern poets for a reason are incredibly consonant with Shakespeare. "We are all in the same boat." And yes, with every minute of the performance, you become more and more convinced that they are modern Hamlets. And they not only exist, but live among us. Businessmen, showmen or even security officers. Every day one can, voluntarily or involuntarily, end up in a very similar life situation, facing the same problem of choice as the Shakespearean hero. Everyone can one day (or more often) ask themselves the question: to be or not to be? And each sets it in its own way. With its intonation, its meaning, its internal settings. And the actors ... How do they play! However, do they play? After all, to play the role of Hamlet is like the enduring dream of every actor. So you just look at their faces, listen to the voices, and it seems that you even dance and throw chairs. And after them, too, as if trying on the "skin" of Hamlet. And music ... Music, it seems to be pulling you to the surface, giving you the opportunity to catch your breath, switch, but in fact only throws up on a new round of this emotional spiral. Spirals, moving along which you are resonating more and more with what is happening on stage. And it even seems that you are no longer you, but just a part of the scenery of this ingenious story of Hamlet. But at the same time you really want to be yourself, at least the best part of yourself. Thank!
“ The Moscow International House of Music is a completely magical place: an airy, as if floating in the air, a building and, I think, it is very suitable for the action that awaited the audience on one of Moscow evenings. It is very difficult to call one word with what the audience saw. Hamlet Story is a state, I would even say, a mood of soul and body and the most correct thing is to surrender to the elements of incredible music, poetic lines and the endless charm of Hamlets. "To be or not to be? That is the question!" It seems that this phrase is erased to the holes, battered by time, and indeed was there any real Hamlet. But what to do: it is important after all now! And everyone asks himself this question, maybe not in such a categorical and literary form, but still ... And having received the answer, you can even reach the cozy chamber number 6. .... There are four Hamlets on stage: three actors and a musician. So different and not similar, but between them there is some invisible connection in the movement of the hand, in the turn of the head, in a friendly look. Sergey Chonishvili. His baritone is able to enter into a trance and drive the viewers crazy in the radius of hearing. The sonic weapon with a huge destructive ability))) The spectators saw him in a performance in different images: either “the Bible does not help with depression”, it “lights” on stage to the beat of music, it shouts verse lines into the hall and deservedly ” rips "screams" Bravo! ". BRAVO! Alexey Kravchenko. There was genuine interest and anticipation: how will it be? After all, Alexey is familiar to most viewers in a certain way, badly, it seems to me, combined with poetry, prose and music. And it turned out interesting! A kind of mountain man, whose jacket is experiencing from the pumped up biceps, reads touching poems about childhood, tenderness and love)) Bravo! Sergey Shnyrev. Tightened and elegant, "like a dandy in London," ironic and sometimes hooligan. A darling of all ages and my own board for all men. His wonderful voice, reading the magic lines, could be listened to for a long time and with pleasure. BRAVO! Alexey Aigi. His violin solo part always evoked constant excitement among the audience; crazy drive and positive energy. The music of Alexei Aigi performed by his ensemble "4'33" is not an addition to what is happening on the stage and not filling the pauses between the verse lines, but an important part of the action is mood, passion, and elements. Solo on the violin and solo on the trombone (I couldn’t even imagine that you can master this instrument so masterly!) - above all praise !! BRAVO! In my humble opinion, "Hamlet STORY" is the case when it’s better to see once than to hear a hundred times. You can write a lot of things about the magic of symbiosis of music, poetry and prose; about the incredible atmosphere in which you immerse for 1 hour and 40 minutes and from which you don’t feel like getting out at the end; about the great charisma of actors and musicians who gave such joy to the viewer; BUT it is better to see-dive-get it all in person)))) Come!
“ Three Hamlets in an hour or forty!?! I do not believe!!!!!! :)
“ I really like poetic evenings, I listen with great pleasure to both Pushkin and Brodsky, and modern poets. But the concert “The Magic of Music, the Magic of the Word” exceeded all my expectations. There were many poems that I either did not hear, or very rarely come across the Internet. I was amazed by the team of Alexey Aigi - the ensemble “4:33”, especially the solo parts of the cello and trumpet. I have never seen such an emotional game on the Conservatory scene. The final of the first part of the concert just won. I am very sorry that I did not buy the program, I can not imagine how to find what they were playing. The music was an excellent accompaniment to the verses sounding from the stage - both what was played in separate pieces and what sounded like a photon to the verses. The organ followed by Konstantin Volostnov sounded great too. Poems sounded from the scene different - from the lyrics to the passion. The actors are different in character - open and cheerful Yevgeny Strakhov, caustic and caustic Sergey Chonishvili and severe and strict Sergey Shnyrev. Yevgeny Strakhov performed poems by Boris Ryzhy, Alexander Kushner, Gennady Shpalikov. Very soft verses were chosen for the program. Sergey Shnyrev read poems of Joseph Brodsky, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Vladimir Gandelsman. The familiar lines of Brodsky sounded new. The brightest impression of the evening is the voice of Sergey Chonishvili, his manner of reading. And his dancers on the musical inserts - it was so soulful. But the choice of poems is the most provocative, especially “The Effect of Eroticism on Organisms”. In general, it was a wonderful evening, for me it is a great pleasure to plunge into the magical world of poetry and music.
“ Pasternak, Brodsky, Mandelstam, Samoilov - the names of the poets on hearing, even if you have not read the works of these authors. Lovers and connoisseurs of poetry can easily remember which of the famous poets belong to certain lines. Though not the most popular poems sounded in the summer July evening from the stage of the Moscow Tchaikovsky State Conservatory. But Boris Ryzhy, whose poems fell a little from the canvas of the even flow of familiar poetry, in the musical-poetic project “The Magic of Music is the magic of the word,” few people know. BORIS RED'S "ME DOESN'T ENOUGH TENDERNESS IN VERSES ..." I do not have enough tenderness in verses, but I want to get tenderness - as inevitability or as negligence. And I kiss you in a hurry, O stupid my muse! You, turning away, hide tears. And I roar from this pathetic prose, not hiding the face, not melting my heart. Boy, I'm stuck to your cheek. As old people, as angels, as children, we will live alone in the whole world. You sob, I rhyme "sob." Alexei Aigi’s violin mourned Ryzhy shrilly, gently whispered with Kushner, laughed with Prigov, missed Blok, recalled with Gumilyov. Which instrument makes you cry and empathize more than a violin ... Violinist Alexei Aigi, head of Ensemble 4'33 ", the audience applauded standing. a church. Forgetting that assessment requires at least one author’s works, and these connoisseurs probably do not know that "... in 1900 at the Paris World Exhibition he was recognized as one of the best organs of the world. "The audience, of course, deserves a separate story. I tell the whole story about the play with photos and videos in my blog.
“ None of the actors, neither Sergey Chonishvili, nor Daniel Strakhov, nor Sergey Shnyrev even tried to convince the audience that all this could be written by him. That is, they do not play the role of poets. They simply fill with sound and pronounce ingenious words and lines written by others. The lines of Gumilyov, Blok, Mandelstam, Pasternak, Brodsky, Samoilov, Kushner, Ryzhy, Prigov and others. But they are pronounced as if each of them is the author. Sincerely, sincerely, carefully. Thus, only people who know their price very well can relate to words. And yes. This word! It `s Magic! The magic of the living word! And this effect is easy to explain, because in this unusual project, each of the actors chooses what he will read. The most resonant, close and aching. Moreover, from concert to concert texts can change, as well as the internal state of each of the actors. Today is closer one, and tomorrow something else. And this is life! Our feelings and emotions change. Our inner self is constantly transforming. And if suddenly your own “waves” coincided in frequency with the state of at least one of the actors, then the “magic of the word” will cover you with your head. And each text will knock at the temples and ache in the hypochondrium. However, the poetry of the Silver Age leaves few people indifferent, regardless of the emotional state. How to remain indifferent, for example, to these lines: I was lucky to be a Russian poet. I had the honor of touching victories. I had the grief of being born in the twentieth, In the cursed year and in the capital cursed. (c) David Samoilov What thick skin should one have in order not to feel what these lines are about and what depth is in them? Hall felt. And froze. And so all the first part and sat. Stunned and silent, unable to even applaud. Because the words sounded for silence. About fate, about the motherland, about life. It was possible to inhale and relax only when the words came to be replaced by music. The explosive music of Alexei Aigi and the group “4:33”. Or unhurried sounds of the organ performed by Konstantin Volostnov. The colored spots with which the organ was whimsically highlighted during the game acted psychedelic. As a result, unimaginable emotional swings were thrown back and forth, so that at some point I even suddenly wanted everything to end abruptly! Here it is right this second! Another pair of chords played by the violin, and so a sharp break! Because "the kettle has already boiled." And then there was the second branch. About love. Every, every word about love. To the woman, life, God. In Russia, parting forever. Put another piece of ice in the cold verse. ... And the trains go downhill, ... And the planes, reaching as far as the stars, burn in them. (from) Boris Ryzhiy Oh, how passionate and sincere it was! Poems, poems. The actors replaced each other, but the poems remained. And love remained. It hung like a cloud above the stage, above the hall, above all of us. And music, music. I listened to Sergei Chonishvili’s voice with my eyes closed, for Yes! There is also a video series! On a huge screen. And helps to catch the "wave". And in the final, huge thanks! To all. To these people who gave us a wonderful evening, to the authors, whose verses sounded, to the universe, to the universe, to God! To all. For everything, for everything. During the muddy dawn. For the bread. For the salt. The warmth of homeland. For thanking you all, for not hearing a word. (c) Boris Red But you still hear!
“ My husband and I were at the Conservatory at an amazing concert-performance "The Magic of Music The Magic of the Word". What to say? First of all, I would like to thank the creators of this event by name: Director: Natalia Semenova Masters words: Sergey Chonishvili Daniil Strakhov Sergey Shnyrev Music Masters: Alexey Aigi and group 4.33 (these guys are gods!) Konstantin Volostnov, who created a fantastic atmosphere playing the organ. These people managed to create something unique and truly magical, combining into one whole the music of the highest level and energy, the works of poets of the 20th century performed by great professionals and artistic and light installations. Music is beyond praise, captures and entails from the first moments. It disturbs, hurts, stirs, heals ... The intensity of emotions in the hall is mad. Looking at Alexei Aigi is a separate pleasure, and his group breathes with one breath, lives on the stage as a single organism! Subtle strokes, wide strokes create the image of the actors of the past century, which is woven from destinies and poems. And their voices! Sometimes I caught myself being fascinated by the fact that the music of the voice is no less than the music of Aigi. The timbre of Daniil Strakhov's bitter chocolate, the wise winter wind in Sergey Chonishvili's voice ... The first act as if by a razor blade, at the limit. Answers to questions give rise to new questions. Existential loneliness, the search for self, god, country, love ... Feeling of understatement and impending drama. The second part is about love. Different. Passionate. Tired Sincere to the pain. Love for a woman, country, god ... Words of gratitude. The look of the Father from heaven. Here, yes. This performance is like a look of God in the soul and a look of the soul in heaven. Handsomely! Thank you
“ She was going to go to the Kremlin for a concert on her mother’s day with a friend, but decided to stay a good mother and go with her 16-year-old son to Onegin. I never regretted it! Modern, unusual, beautiful play of actors, fascinating live music. Not reading a son instead of the usual "norms" convincingly said "I liked it!" Even recognized himself in Onegin. Then they discussed, argued, read at home passages that were not included in the performance. In my opinion, for the sake of it all was started. Thank you for the wonderful evening and bright impressions!
“ Seen. We know. Would go again! To hear and recognize what is sometimes said at too fast a pace. And again to have fun. Minus only one - in the device of the Mayakovsky Theater's hall - a very small angle of inclination, and in front of sitting large people close the viewing area. And this is still a performance! But there's nothing to be done, if only overhaul. :) And the performance is wonderful! Go! And the school program has nothing to do with it. Go for yourself! Leave the children at home. Let them read. :)
“ I really liked the play. The game of actors, music, video story. It is difficult to single out one or one person. Actors well done, this ensemble! And the music of Alexei Aigi is amazing
“ Onegin show - a classic in the modern rhythm. Familiar lines .. and unfamiliar characters characters. I wanted to read Pushkin again.
“ I liked the performance. Original, modern, rhythmic and effective! It was nice to see your favorite actors on stage. And Sergey Chonishvili's voice was simply fascinating! June 18, Irina Pegova also had a birthday - the spectators overwhelmed her with flowers and gifts))) The ovations did not stop for long! Thanks to everyone who worked on this show !.
