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.
“ Yesterday was the first time. Unusually, original, beautiful. Really liked it! I recommend that you pause from everyday work and come to Viktyuk. I note that the plot must be read in advance. Indeed, those who are "not in the subject" will not understand what was conceived. And naked torsos cease to be separate from the performance of bodies, because it is completely absorbed in energy and action. With a minimum of decorations and clothes - it's very strong !!! Thanks to the actors and Roman Viktyuk for these lived minutes !!! BRAVO!!!
“ A magnificent performance! Slim, sensual, plastic, bold! The energy is crazy. Phaedra is a cry, it's hysteria, it's music! A low bow to all creators and actors! There was a third time - come and the fourth. And those who write reviews on the Internet in the spirit of "what a nightmare: half-naked men read incomprehensible poems" I want to say: the fact that you originally had a poor literary base, low theatrical attentiveness, and what you even did not read Tsvetaeva - that's the problem Not Viktyuk and not actors, but only yours. Work on yourself, read good literature and come to Viktyuk! Moreover, now he has a gold compound, where every actor is a phenomenon! Long years, Maestro!
“ The play "Phaedra" fascinates the actors. Youthful enthusiasm, the energy from the stage is transmitted to us, the audience. The play of actors of the theater of Roman Viktyuk is beyond praise. It was especially nice to see the birth of a great actor in a troupe. This actor Ivan Ivanych in the role of nurse Fedra. God's spark is visible! I will definitely go back to this performance for the opening of the season in a new theater. To all lovers of Marina Tsvetaeva, do not miss! Roman Viktyuk made a precious gift to the production of "Phaedra".
