"The Night in Valoni" (1988) is one of the first plays written by the popular writer Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt. Roman Viktyuk came up with a different name for the performance and pretty much rejuvenated the main character: it was done so that the audience did not in any way connect the emotional experiences of Don Juan with age-related reasons. A young, dazzlingly beautiful hero (Dmitry Bozin) appears on stage surrounded by magnificent ladies, with each of whom he is ready to make a pleasant affair. But all these fascinating, ironic and provocative games lose all meaning when there is true love. Five heroines, blackmailers, personifying more than eight thousand seduced and abandoned women, are faceless and hysterical, but opposed to them the essence of another storehouse, sex and strength of mind - only it is capable of serious feelings, sacrifice and a worthy encounter of fate and death. A leisurely, baroque-style play with soft sensual music and unexpected tricks tells the audience a story about female cunning, male loyalty and the all-conquering power of true feelings.
"Do you demand from us an assurance of eternal love, to give the miserable five minutes?"
Brilliant Don Juan. The dream of many women. Young, handsome, brave, eloquent.
He says that he did not get anything from ladies and girls. I just came and took it.
Only he could say: "If I believed that there was an honor, I would never have put her under a woman's skirt."
A proud Spaniard, able to pierce the sword of her husband to any of the beauties seduced by him.
The ladies decided to teach him a lesson. Lure the magnificent lover to the ball, surround and arrange a trial over him.
What kind of punishment will they come up with for the one who most appreciates their freedom?
And how can you fight with someone whose image makes you tremble ...
It turns out they want to marry him to a young beauty. Condition one. He must promise to keep her faithful.
Unexpectedly, Don Juan agrees with the demand of insidious women.
What is the secret behind his decision? This is so unlike him ...
Could he have met real love?
"He is looking for someone who is not satisfied. The lucky person stops searching. "
Were with a girlfriend for the first time in the theater of RG Viktyuk, ambiguous emotions from viewing remained .... My friend definitely did not like it: nakedness, statements about God, love and relationships .... For me, this is an opportunity to hear opinions and interpretations about eternal concepts different from mine. If you are not ready to make extravagant decisions, then this theater is not for you. Go and decide for yourself at least once. Thanks RG Viktyuku for a bold, different from many, view of the truths of society.
