In Autumn the Academic Maly Theatre turned 260 years old. The opening, which was announced for the 26th of November took place only on the 7th of December.
Presentation of the new stage was colorful and vibrant. During the performance costume parts from plays gave place to creative video sequence. It reminded of one famous Russian theatre, founded by Empress Elisabeth. Right in front of your eyes “appeared in real” actors and stage managers, who left a trace not only in Russian, but in the world theatre culture as well.
The opening was attended by Elina Bystritskaya, Irina Muravyova, Vasily Bochkarev, Evgenia Glushenko, Liudmila Polyakova and many others. If there’s a play with these names in the program, people always ask for a “spare ticket”.
The theatre came back home. Renovators preserved both the historical architecture of the building and the interiors.
