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.
Elsa's story "I remember how I prayed, deeply grieving in my soul" conveys the fragile, pure nature of a dreamy, enthusiastic heroine. Elsa's arioso "Oh light-winged wind" is warmed with joyful hope, anxious expectation of happiness. The subsequent dialogue emphasizes the dissimilarity of the heroines: Ortruda's appeal to the pagan gods has a passionate, pathetic character, Elsa's speech is permeated with cordiality and warmth. The detailed ensemble scene of the dispute between Ortruda and Elsa at the cathedral - Ortruda's malicious slander and Elsa's hot, agitated speech - impresses with dynamic changes in mood. A large build-up leads to a powerful chorus quintet. There are two pictures in the third act. The first is entirely devoted to the psychological drama of Elsa and Lohengrin. In the center is her love duet. The second place is occupied by crowd scenes. A brilliant orchestral intermission introduces a wedding feast to a lively atmosphere with warlike cries, the clang of weapons and innocent tunes. The “Joyous Day” wedding choir is full of jubilation. The dialogue between Lohengrin and Elsa "The heart is tenderly burning with a wonderful fire" is one of the best episodes of the opera; wide flexible lyrical melodies with amazing depth convey the change of feelings - from the rapture of happiness to collision and disaster. The artists of the New Opera performed their parts brilliantly. Lohengrin and Elsa Mikhail Gubsky and Olga TERENTYEVA, Telramund and Ortruda Andrzej Beletsky and Anastasia Bibicheva, King Alexei Antonov. And Bibicheva amazingly performed the villainess. How much snake venom was in my voice. The powerful mezzo amazed her, it was clear that this woman would not give up on her. A huge contrast was Elsa performed by Olga Terentyeva. At first she sang in a pure innocent voice, I even decided that the singer had a light lyric soprano, but at the end of the opera her voice sounded very strong, the singer covered the Wagnerian orchestra. Mikhail Gubsky is a very rare dramatic tenor, a luxurious voice, as you know, a piece of goods. Alexei Antonov's velvet bass caressed the ear. Andrzej Bielecki in the role of Telramund was a match for his wife, he performed the part very professionally. There were flaws in the orchestra, the brass line-up was kicking. I wish it weren't. Well, I will not write the production, we will not talk about sad things ...
Since the time of the story "Childhood" in the 6th grade, Gorky for me was a boring and not at all catchy writer. But I went to the play "At the Bottom" with curiosity. I already knew that the director Y. Grymov knows how to stage classics in such a way that the boring becomes interesting, the philosophical becomes accessible, and the protracted becomes dynamic. Expectations came true 100%! The modern inhabitants of Rublevka speak in the language of Gorky, and you would never think that the play was written in 1902. Despite branded items and rich surroundings, people's problems have changed little. Someone is looking for love, who is the truth, someone is already holding the "bottom" with a stranglehold. The actors play great! Each has created a unique image. Vasilisa, Vaska Ashes, Actor seemed especially bright to me. I read reviews - many consider Luka in the play as a negative hero. And he seemed pretty to me. In a difficult situation, he is always there, finds encouraging words, calls on a person to be human. This is important! Music perfectly complements what is happening on stage. I liked the performance and will be understandable to high school students when studying the work. Theater "Modern", in my opinion, is doing a very important job - it reveals the world of classical literature for young people, and this is very valuable. And yes ... I have not read the play, but now I will probably read it ...
My new love is the "Modern" theater! I love it! I just liked EVERYTHING !!! The theater itself is very beautiful - leather sofas, many different unusual lamps, a shining star on the stairs and teddy bears for social distance in free seats, in the auditorium. I really liked the performance! It retains the language and style of the classics, and modern details, recognizable music make the plot of marriage relevant and understandable! Young people are so interesting and accessible! The costumes are unusual, the actors played cool especially Lolita Milyavskaya. In the final, she really touched me: she was left alone. There were many suitors, but nothing came of it. Everyone wanted to marry Agafya Tikhonovna. Whom the mother forced, whom the comrade brought, alone the whole house and the outbuilding assessed. Understandable, accessible, modern! Thanks to director Yuri Grymov for introducing us to the classics so easily! Very bright, smart, with a sense of humor production! I would like to thank the Modern Theater for the invitation. You are best!
I bought tickets at my own peril and risk, because Platonov with his Soviet utopias and depressing world was always difficult for me to read. My wife was wary of my act, but let's go. And they never regretted it! Each action, and it lasts two hours, was dynamic, emotional and with good humor. Thank you very much to all the participants in the performance!
Almost two years have passed since my friend and I went to the play "All Ways Lead to the North" from the Ballet Moscow Theater on the stage of the Stanislavsky Theater. And then it turned out that not only adults can enjoy modern dance, because especially for children, the Moscow Ballet has two whole performances: "Thumbelina" 0+ and a new performance "The Wizard of Oz" 6+. During the quarantine, the January Blonde got carried away with computer games, so for him to go to the ballet, where each action resembles the completion of a mission in the game, and the scenery and costumes of the characters are constantly referring to Minecraft in a pixel square, and makes you remember about endermen (black mobs) and creepers ( green kamikaze mobs). Perhaps very little ones can be a little scared, because there are many battles, missions, obstacles in the performance, but older children will appreciate the dynamism. The main idea that our strength is in unity and brotherhood, in my opinion, is read very quickly, because only together the heroes of the classic work of Lyman Frank Baum "The Amazing Wizard of Oz" and the book by Alexander Volkov "The Wizard of the Emerald City" can cope with everything and to reach the Boss, in this case the Wizard, who gives the Rewards. Everything is like in the Game, everything is like in Life. We also liked the choreography (Toto was especially successful - Andrey Tikhonov), the costumes: what a luxurious mane Lev (Azamat Ishkin) has, why -that I took it at first for Fire. The most fascinating scene with the Poppies, to the music of Murat Kabardokov, immerse the audience in a hypnotic state of delight. The ballet takes 1 hour 15 minutes with an intermission, for the kids, who were very many in the hall, it can be too long, but they will be able to sit out the first action.In front of KZ Izmailovo there is ample parking, and the metro with ground transport stops is literally 10 minutes away. but to leave the shift, for this you don't even need to contact the employees, they show the shelf where the mothers leave the packages. Before the play, kids have a place to run in the foyer, decorated with fancy lights. There is a small buffet that accepts cards, but it is one, and the queue cannot be avoided.
How does the show begin?
The theater begins with a hanger, and the play? From the word? With a play written by someone? And maybe with improvisation?
Here it is, the hall - everything is in it as always and, at the same time, very differently. It looks like a small cozy restaurant. What could be better than, slowly sipping from the cup just brewed and spicy coffee, watching the life around? Nothing.
And then the look grabs the next tables, each of which unfolds its own history of relationships. Each time - completely unique, because the words are born right here, on the spot.
Three friends are looking for money in their pockets, dinner was too expensive! An awkward situation, but somehow you need to get out of it!
But the first acquaintance of the "girl" and mother. The young man is obviously nervous, because go figure out who is older, my mother or his "girlfriend."

"One person believed in God. Then he took Makarov's pistol from his friend and shot himself. "
Many people would like to come to God, but they do not. And others, it would seem, sincerely believe, only actions are not Christian at all.
Actors read excerpts from a book dedicated to the lives of those who consider themselves believers.
Among them there are different fathers, who sometimes are drunkards and kleptomaniacs. Even unbelievers!
And next to them lived kind and modest toilers, who after their death began to be revered as saints.
Funny stories about a monk who plays in a children's typewriter or sits under a table for fun.

And the wife is still a thing! Not only that, with her hysterics, she got her husband, she also got dragged home with a young lover. But she promised to visit her parents!
What now Anna with them to do with all? And this is what they call a muddle! I'd look at myself ... It's not going to work out all right.
They can not be found! It requires a general's strategy and tactics of the marshal, so that these two pairs of doves accidentally do not bump into each other.

The horse and its master. One worked as much as he could. Another kutil and squandered the state.

And the characters are forced to always mention sardines! After all, the play - a "sardine" sponsor, a seller of canned fish.
Can you imagine how "touring" the tours of this troupe are?
All the time something goes wrong. Then the props lost, the decor was broken, then the actors forgot the lyrics of the roles.
The tension is increasing. Absolutely absurd!
The director is frightened waiting for the final exit of one of the artists. But will he? After all, the actor got drunk in the insole ...
A striking comedy by Michael Freyn. Unrepeatable English humor. You will laugh all the time.
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".

Return of the legend.
This piercing story of an unusually strong, rebellious and extraordinary soul, languishing in loneliness, attracts the attention of Roman Viktyuk for more than 30 years.
And the point here, perhaps, in the extraordinary talent that manifested itself in every line that Tsvetaeva wrote.
So it should not be surprising that the first production - a work about an extraordinary woman, the will of fate and the anger of the goddess of love, blazing unusually strong feelings for her stepson, brought the director an unprecedented success.
And now - the return of the play took place. Although, is it possible to consider it a return, or is it an update of a legend in which there are no guilty, and there are only innocent ones?
Rather, this is a rethinking and a completely new reading of the genius work. A refined interweaving of dance, singing, reading, playing and even gestures and facial expressions. All this together creates an extraordinary atmosphere saturated with foreseeing of the tragic finale, which draws into the world of the endless struggle of a woman strong with her own passion, wrong and frightening.
