Was yesterday with an 8-year-old grandson. I liked the performance both, the scenery interesting is a bit too dark in the corresponding night scenes and there were not very audible moments in the dress circle, take the tickets closer. I recommend going to the classics and the music of I. Sats is very adorable for the action.
I liked the performance, and even despite the fact that I recently re-read and reviewed a completely not bad series screened for this work, I was interested! It can be seen and heard perfectly, although we had seats in the 1st tier balcony. The performance, as many have written here before, is long and it is not surprising for the staging of such a complex and voluminous work ... bravo to the director, the director and the actors! I recommend for viewing!
It makes no sense to tell for a long time - we liked it! I love the works of Polyakov - easy to read, intrigue, good humor! This performance is about 3 hours, but this time passes unnoticed. The plot, the play of actors, the scenery, and the theater itself (it was very, very long time ago, you need to catch up) - everything is top notch! Recommend! PS: thanks, bigbylet! Fast, convenient, reliable!
They marched on Hamlet, but there was a substitute for The Taming of the Shrew. Not at all saddened, because they wanted to pomotret exactly Shakespeare in the classical formulation. However, the classic production can not be called. Yes, it's fun. But no more than that. They stirred up some kind of gypsy. I did not like it at all, I would not recommend it to anyone. Although, with pleasure we go to this theater, of course, we didn’t see much, but such a “show” hasn’t been seen for a long time. How do you want to see and listen to this Shakespeare, but apparently, alas, everyone wants to do something such, something like, so that it would be interesting to watch those who come with food in the auditorium. Classical productions are not interesting to anyone ?? ...
Again and again, "Fathers and Sons", as if there is nothing more to put, someone will say with boredom and will be fundamentally wrong! Because about this performance should say something like this: "Fathers and Sons"? Cheers cheers! And it's not just that the phenomenon of the novel “Fathers and Children” is in its enduring relevance, because every generation is experiencing a conflict between youth and maturity. And the experience of parents, sooner or later, necessarily faces a thirst for change, which is always experienced by maturing children. The fact that the Moscow Art Theater them. M. Gorky, who has been led by T. V. Doronin since 1987, delivered and presented us with an absolutely amazing version of "Fathers and Sons". Director Alexander Dmitriev, starting to work on the play, saw one of his main tasks as close as possible to the time when the novel was written, so that the viewer, imbued with this atmosphere, wanted to pick up a book and reread it. And it was possible for 100% !!! As soon as the curtain rose, the hall gasped! How elegant and scrupulous scenery. It’s absolutely impossible to put into words how good they are! Even the lamp was burning before the icons! Yes! Moscow Art Theater them. M. Gorky proudly bears the title of academic theater, while maintaining loyalty to the traditions. And no matter how much I admire theatrical innovations, I will always love traditional theater! And yes, this production once again convincingly proves that tradition and classic are not naphthalene! Traditions and classics are a delight and ecstasy! It was the delight I felt at the end of the performance, going to the theater hall. And it was for this performance that I wanted to bring my son. Yes, in the performance the usual life of the society of the second half of the XIX century, shown generously and vividly, with very precise accents and careful interpretations and characteristics. Interpretations that completely coincide with my own. Of course, I went first to look at Bazarov. This uncompromising and impudent "hero of our time", the idol of the youth. And how gorgeous Bazarov here! From the very first stage to the final! A brilliant acting game of Nikolai Korotaev! Bravo! How many-sidedly the image is generously revealed, how the actor himself is textured in the image of Bazarov! And yet ... everything else that happened in the house of Bazarov's parents is to tears! Lydia Matasova - the best! I already want to see all the performances with her participation! It was she who forced me, sitting in the hall, to wipe the tears. Those were different tears. First, the tears of emotion, then the tears of sadness and, finally, the tears of delight. Thank! You can, of course, long to talk about this performance. Noting the amazing final harmony in a pair of Katerina-Arkady, or the nobility and aristocracy of the eldest Kirsanov, or Anna's obvious cowardice. Or noting the wonderful work of costume designer Elena Yarochkina. Or the main artist of the Moscow Art Theater. M. Gorky Viktor Vladimirovich Fedotiev (I think that thanks to his talent we all, sitting in the hall, saw in the background of the scene not just a rural landscape, but dawn, a hot afternoon and even rain. You can talk for a long time, but why ... when each of us has the opportunity to go and just see it? Go!
The work for all ages and as of today is undoubtedly relevant. The staging, the scenery, the play of the artists reflect the spirit of that time. Tatyana Doronina is a great actress, but the team’s work is obvious in the first place! Silence in the hall is complete, but I had to listen all the same. But without words, emotions are obvious. Thank!
I watched the same performance at the Hermitage Theater very much, I even caused a tear, I decided that it was my favorite performance from all that I had seen. the feeling that they are deceiving me, I read the play and know everything. This production is not about the year 1926 in which Bulgakov wrote, but about us, according to our time. Very musical, live performance, reminded me of a cabaret. The actors are great.
