"O jealousy, how you dig into your heart!"
Alexander the Great fell in love with a beautiful hetaer named Thais. He considers her to be like Aphrodite, the goddess of love.
All men, including the philosopher Aristotle, the teacher of Alexander, are crazy about her.
Beauty lives in Athens, where the great commander rests after the victorious war.
As a wise strategist, Alexander prepares in advance for war with the Persian king Darius. The commander knows that it is inevitable, and seeks to delay its beginning.
He dreams a strange dream in which he is killed by an unknown girl.
Wise Thais thinks little about the fans. She used to dominate them. It is more important for her not to allow another war.
She decided to talk about this with Darius. He must heed her pleas. Who needs new battles, new victims?
But evil tongues told Alexander about the meeting between Thais and his enemy.
Alexander is beside himself with jealousy. For the sake of Thais, he left his wife!
He orders the assistant to find out if Thais has changed him. If he is deceived, she is in danger of dying.
Blood will flow again. Alexander and Darius are entering a new war.
"Women know how fragile life is, how death is close, and men dream of immortality and kill endlessly on every occasion."
“ The performance as a whole was pleasant. There is a plot, the tragic end is interesting. But the downsides are: 1 / very stretched, for 3 hours. 2 / the role of the Macedonian actor plays poorly. We need a more expressive artist. Did not convey the tragedy that is necessary. I would be ideal if Dzhigurda, although I'm not his fan. The first part is boring, but the second is brighter and more action. The play was one of my favorites.
“ Very interesting performance staged. How much historical knowledge can be gleaned not only from the thick volumes of books, but also after watching the performance. Actors, as always, at the height !!!! Zrelishchno.Soderzhatelno.Iironiya and sadness intertwined in the plot. Interesting!
“ I watched a year ago. I was very sorry that I was wasting my time and regretted that I did not leave after the first act, I usually believe that the actors will correct the game and draw the performance. But, alas! In the "Theater of the Moon" I saw several productions and they were played well. But in this case, the impression was that the actors were shown the text 10 minutes before entering the stage and they had to improvise, which they too did not work, there were many awkward pauses, it was unpleasant. Instead of the text, the actors made a lot of noise, rumbled with various objects, especially I want to note the love of pounding on different subjects of Vladimir Tyagichev, it's probably the script should have been, but it's too often and unnaturally, Vladimir, it's ugly, do not do it again. I still remember with disgust. I do not recommend it.
