I was looking forward to meeting with one of the most respected and oldest theaters in Moscow. I really wanted to see Inga Oboldina in the play "Hairdresser" with my own eyes. I went almost to the actress. Specific. Specially picked up a ticket for Friday! Before your birthday! I BELIEVED very much and hoped for a wonderful prelude before her holiday. Hoping to see the sparkling actress play! Indeed, in all of his cinema works, this was exactly so. Ease of play, diversity, nice voice. And then came the long-awaited day. The last time I was at the Moscow Art Theater was about 8 years ago. And what did I see? The huge size, the vastness of the building inside are striking in their inactivity. Semi-repair condition of the upper floors. A dull, dying feeling from within. The audience (usually mixed in all theaters: from old to young) - here 98% of women are 65-80 years old. What is it? It is on the "Hairdresser" comes the age-related female audience ???? Was it a flash mob ?? I didn’t figure it out. In the entire huge hall counted 4 men. And then - the 3rd call. And the expectation of meeting the Beautiful. With Actress! Waiting for a costume action with decorations worthy of the Moscow Art Theater. And so ... The light went out ... and it began. A huge, empty scene (from the scenery), in the middle - a cardboard box (one), which was modified as a "lego". Okay, this could be experienced as an “idea." And then .... a question for the NEW leadership: are you serious ??? Is this a performance for the Moscow Art Theater? This April Fools Day is not a joke ??? If I went to the KVN and that would be a departure from the 1st round. This parody of the play - could be shown as a diploma probe before release. What is it??? The fact that the floor of the hall was cut off from boredom in the 10th minute is to say nothing. Instead of a pleasant (cinematic voice) Inga Oboldina all 1.5 hours of unpleasant for hearing ultrasonic sound of the voice. She didn’t leave just because she was waiting for the Miracle: that this terrible dream would finally turn into a REAL performance with a GAME of actors, and not a pantomime for 3rd grade students. Then I waited for an explanation ... that someone would go on stage and say: this is a joke. Premiere. This horror rolled over us. Not??? The end!!?? They turned on the light ..., applause ... and all began to go out dumb. To understand that I was not the only one who went crazy or believe that I have a bad taste .... "I went to the people." Adjacent to one group, then to another .. And overheard: what they say. Uffff. Thank God ... I did not lose my mind .... Everyone came out in the same shock and TOTAL misunderstanding: "what was that" ??????? Even in the trolley, people continued to say: “why is it so boring, not interesting !? A role that could be a benefit for the Actress. And suddenly it is so gray, one-sided, without colors .....” It would be unworthy to even put on prom in vocational school !!! I am ashamed of the THEATER.
I liked Domogarov, he was convincing. There are questions to the formulation (especially when there is a film from Bergman himself from 1973). Look, evaluate. Very nice room, sat in the bed of the mezzanine on the last row, clearly visible and audible.
We were at the play in October 2019. I doubted very much when I bought tickets for teenagers who are just passing through the school curriculum this work, because The previous experience of visiting this mhat was sad. But surprisingly a decent performance turned out to be. As usual for adults, it is more relevant than for children)) the main conclusion is that you can go, a normal classical reading of the work. The least liked Bazarov just. For some reason, they made him a stupid wig that greatly spoiled his image) Bazarov's parents played amazingly, especially his father. In general, the moral issues raised in the play are probably no longer understood by the modern generation)), but this is a question of how to study classics at school)) and he isn’t here) so I decided to specially write even a review for other parents) )
It so happened that I had never been to the Gorky Moscow Art Theater. I heard different things about this theater, unfortunately, more often something is not very good. I decided to go on reconnaissance and see everything with my own eyes. I did not expect much from this performance. My viewer and reader experience suggested that “The Master and Margarita” is unlikely to be completely traditional (until the smell of naphthalene in the buffet). At the same time, a steep, boisterous avant-garde was also unlikely. Therefore, morally, I prepared for the fact that they could show me anything. And I was ready to accept it! But it turned out that I somewhat overestimated my capabilities. Alas, it did not work out to accept this performance. Unfortunately, I can’t even say that I have a double impression. It is purely negative. This applies to everything: both the production and the play of actors. The first - a mixture of pop, in the worst sense of the word, and a children's matinee - I was very surprised and disappointed. I had a very high opinion of the late Valeria Belyakovich as a director. Probably any artist has unsuccessful work. But for the second excuse was not found. These were some howls with sharp gestures. I would like to hope that the matter is hack work, and not a low level of acting (and such thoughts involuntarily visited my head). Hackwork, unlike mediocrity, can be corrected. I really hope that the new management of the theater, in the person of Eduard Boyakov, will take some measures. Because the theater, which builds its genealogy to Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko, should not produce such performances.
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!
