HAMLET Story - SAMIThe SAMi project (Commonwealth of Actors, Musicians and ...) does not need advertising! As soon as they announce the date of the performance, tickets are sold out in a matter of days! And the other day, on March 10, on the stage of the Svetlanov Hall in the House of Music again "HAMLET Story" Back in October, we watched this production in an unusual club version (which was realized due to the current conditions and is unlikely to be repeated) and shot a video about it! Director Natalya Semyonova, actors Alexei Kravchenko and Sergei Chonishvili tell us about modern Hamlets and the search for an answer to the eternal question.
In Moscow, there are places that can be called "Bulgakov": here the writer lived and worked, funny stories happened to him there. But especially the interests of those locations, which placed the author of the heroes of the novel "The Master and Margarita."
In places that played an important role in the life of Mikhail Bulgakov, and in those places that are noted in the novel, the guests of the excursion will be lucky with the retro tram "302-BIS". If you dive into the past, if you dive headlong into the world of the Bulgakov novel, then only on such a tram - stylish, beautiful. Such a tram - like an echo of the past times, missed several decades, which passed unnoticed.
But Moscow, undoubtedly, has changed. What did Bulgakov's contemporaries and the author of the "Master and Margarita" see? ..
All, all, all - this is who do you think? Maybe Cova, Donkey Eeyore and Piglet? Or maybe it's Robin's family and friends?
Mom is so similar to the pink Piglet, Dad - to the very Winnie the Pooh, eternally sad uncle - the spitting donkey Eeyore, and the grandmother - the same wise as the owl.
Here they are, all the time, each has his own habits and character.
With them it is not easy, and not always they get on peacefully, but in the end they still find a common language, because together they form a small but important world.
Who would Vinnie be without his friends-buddies? How sad and lonely it would be for Robin to live without his relatives!
You can love at least from afar? On distance…
Birds' grumbling, the rustle of trees, love, hate, disappointment ... Everything united in one breath, in rhymed lines of the poet.
Break through the pages with poems and see a living person. What he was thinking about, dreamed of what kind of women he loved.
Women loved a lot of people. Nobody knows how to love like a bully. He changed them like gloves. More precisely as mittens. Dumped one, two, three. Not every Ryazan has such a Don Juan.
And he loved to drink. But not more than women. Let him slurp the bitter, but he remained a free man.
A great brawler. A great mystery. Always walked along the edge. His farewell song hits right into the heart.
All life is hot metal. Lonely soul. So wide and so superfluous.
And such a different ... Rashabisty reveler, a village shepherd or a rebel. Creator, artist, genius ...
He left without saying goodbye. Suddenly and painfully.
If we burn, it's too hot to burn ...
Well, who does not remember from the school bench this "appreciate the act of Raskolnikov," "whether he had the right or not," "what do these thoughts lead to" ... Well, and so on.
But in fact the truth, to what?
Someone makes them think about the problems of being, and someone is encouraged to write an amazing libretto for the real rock opera.
Then there are those who create a musical masterpiece, those who embody on the stage are not such simple images, revealing new facets of the characters. And now - the masterpiece is ready.
But what is a masterpiece without decorations and unique technologies? In this age, when art and technology are intertwined together, creating an even more authentic world - it would seem impossible to surprise, but some still risk to try.
So, our heroes: music - Eduard Artemyev, libretto, idea and staging - Andrey Konchalovsky, art director - Matt Diili (Great Britain), costume designer - Tamara Ashba.
However, of course, this is not all who worked to create this amazing work, and the more interesting it is to come and see what happened to them in the end!
He waited a long fifteen years. Once he was good-natured, young and naive. It would seem that he should not have had enemies. But the judge put his eye on his wife - and the young barber for nothing was sent to serve life penal servitude.
He escaped from penal servitude, he returned to London fifteen years later. He wants to take revenge on the judge - but the path to revenge is long. And now every counter, any casually wandering client becomes an enemy ...
He forgot what it felt like, long forgotten how to forgive.
How will this horrible story of despair and hatred end?
God grant that our calves and wolves can understand.
Who will have the wealth of a rich widow? And Kupavina is also beautiful, but painfully naive.
Pomeschitsa Murzavetskaya, imperious "the girl of 60 years", very much it would be desirable to deceive the young widow! She and the bill is ready to forge, and gossip dissolves, that the late husband Kupavina took from her a lot of money.
In the course are any means, vicious and dishonest. His nephew, drunkard and slacker of Apollo, treacherous Meropia Davydovna dreams of urgently marrying a wealthy widow.
And Kupavina so dreams of love, tenderness, care!
In financial affairs, Kupavina is quite inexperienced. She lets herself be shamelessly deceived by brazen crooks. They cheat with her promissory notes. These sutras can ruin anyone.
But the widow's clever neighbor is ready to deal quickly with the mean scammers. He will find a council for them.
Would the widow agree to marry him?
"Do people live all around us? Wolves and sheep." Wolves eat sheep, and sheep humbly allow themselves to eat. "
The past life broke, history turned around, and all who lost their comfort, there was only one thing: to flee. Associate Professor of the Department of Philosophy, the wife of a once important and influential person, Archbishop, officers - here all were equal. Their destinies are stirred up by the events of the beginning of the twentieth century. They are exiles, fleeing from their past to meet the future. What will be the alarming tomorrow - hopeful or gloomy-threatening?
The large-scale run was described in his bold play by M. Bulgakov, and the director Maria Fedosova embodied it in scenes-dreams. Does the heroes dream of what is happening? Or is it all in real life?
Another Gogol ... Lyrical, poetic, heartfelt ... Do not expect from this performance of catchy satirical revelations and scourging the flaws of thievish officials. It's about something else.
Preserved memories of contemporaries that Gogol conceived the image of Khlestakov as an unrestrained dreamer, a gentle dreamer, almost a poet. This lyrical intonation dominates the play.
The capitalist swindler gets into the confidence of provincial officials, "dear people" as he calls them, and shamelessly deceives them. But in this play, the tender history of Khlestakov's heartfelt affection for the daughter of the mayor soon comes to the fore.
The simple-minded inhabitants of the distant town rather do not cause laughter, but sincere sympathy for their sincere desire to please the metropolitan guest.
The actors of the theater play funny and touching. In a magnificent ensemble of ensembles, each completes or shades off the skill of his colleague.
"Oh, how you want to return to the town ..." Gogol, and remember the text of the eternal play, loved from school years.
Leave the dead in the ground. They do not exist for the living.
What a horror we experience at the sight of a dead man. Even from one thought about the corpse throws in a shiver. And some people do not even have to be afraid. The dead bring them thoughts ... about money!
At all times there were people who did not stop at nothing to make money. But lovers of easy money, as a rule, finish badly.
A retired official, now an adventurer, is making a big stir in the life of a small provincial town. To fabulously enrich himself, he planned a series of frauds on human trafficking.
But do not be afraid, our hero is not a slave. He buys those who have long since died. Hundreds of dead souls. And the landlords do not have to pay taxes, and it benefits him.
One dream is to become a superman, to rise above all. But not by any personal qualities, but only by a ringing golden coin. What to do, his father left this covenant to him - to save and save a penny.
And everything high - only hinders this goal. Deception, bribery, embezzlement - these are effective tools for obtaining capital.
Infernal hell! Can a man live with a dead soul?
Here Hamlet wanders around the stage with a volume in his hand. He, the actor giving a presentation in Elsinore, the prince only on the stage. But, as befits an actor, Hamlet lives his role to the end. So, learning that the present king, Hamlet's uncle, treacherously killed his brother-king, Hamlet's father, in order to deceive the throne, Hamlet decides to take revenge on his uncle. In his decision, however, he is not sure, and he constantly fluctuates between the notorious "to be" and "not to be," and only in the final, dying, dares to pierce his uncle with a deadly rapier.
So, the story line is true to the Shakespearean text, full of questions and insoluble mysteries. However, the fact that Hamlet is actually a lyceum and fulfills his role without parting with the book makes it possible to say that one truly Shakespearian problem is particularly prominently displayed and grotesquely explicated in the production: do we choose the role that we will play? If not, can we even stage it, arrange accents, creatively beat events, scenery, costumes? Or all that remains for us is to act, frantically giving in to the fact that we live, and asking as little as possible about the question, but who has invented all this, if, say, we fell for revenge for our father and die in the finale of our tragedy?
A louse or not a louse - that's the question.
A man is on the verge of despair. Is capable of anything. And if a person is also smart, this can lead to disastrous consequences.
Poor student. Even a loaf of doctor's sausage is not worth buying. And then there's a bloody callous in front of the account for studying.
And what is so tempting, glitters on the table with fascination? An old family watch. Nominal, engraved. Do chasers become a chance to escape?
The damned usurer turned out to be an avid rubbish. The money offered will not cover any expenses. This is not to be killed at all. One more old woman, one less.
A sharpened ax - here it is a straw for a drowning man. One blow, the second. Rub a puddle of blood, pick up all the jewels. It is done.
To justify the deed, a very convenient theory has already matured. Who said that you can not kill? Everyone is a louse. And the old woman is a louse. Destroy, get out.
One I have the right. Very smoothly comes out. Knowingly received a diploma.
But no crime will go unpunished.
The verdict is announced. You are sentenced to life imprisonment in hell.
