On moral values, generational conflict and the relationship between parents and children. The Kaliningrad Regional Drama Theater is preparing premieres for the opening of the 72nd season.
The performance "Children of Vanyushin" is included in the repertoire of many Russian theaters. In the new 72nd season, she can also be seen on the stage of the Kaliningrad drama. Director Mikhail Sales is preparing to present his version of the theatrical production.
The actors are rehearsing an episode of a family drama. What is happening on the stage is familiar to many families of the 21st century. Merchant Alexander Vanyushin worked all his life for the future of his six children. I set aside every penny to provide them with a comfortable existence. Obsessed with trade, he did not notice that the children had grown up selfish and disconnected. And they also abhor his life values and foundations.
Michal Salez, People's Artist of Russia, production director:
- The strength of this play lies in the fact, I emphasize, in my opinion, there are no right or wrong. As in life! You have your own truth, I have mine. And when these truths collide, this is the conflict without which, unfortunately, humanity cannot live.
The emotional intensity is also felt on the small stage. Here they prepare a generational story about 30-year-olds called "Matches". The play based on the work of the same name by the contemporary playwright Konstantin Steshik. The protagonist feels the strength and potential to live, but does not find application for this in reality.
Elizaveta Bondar, stage director:
- This is a story about a good person who is very bad. This is a story about a nonconformist who, with the theory of small deeds, is trying to change something in this world.
The performances "Matches" and "Children of Vanyushin" will open the new theatrical season. True, they will not be the only premieres in the fall. The phantasmagoria "Dead Souls" and an interactive fairy tale for children can be seen in the last days of October.
