The musical-theatrical production “Devil, Soldier and Violin” based on The Soldier’s Story and other compositions by Igor Stravinsky has been created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the work (originally premiered in Switzerland on 28 September 1918). It is brilliant music performed by outstanding musicians, fine poetic text by Mikhail Uspensky, animated drawings by Andrei Makarevich, computer animation, video and lighting effects.

Main roles: Vladimir Pozner, Andrey Makarevich, Dmitry Sitkovetsky, Polina Osetinskaya, Igor Fedorov and others.

«WE ARE SO DIFFERENT»

Evgenia Dobrovolskaya and Sergey Chonishvili talk to the audience about love, telling the stories of famous poetic tandems in the language of their own poems dedicated to each other. Marina Tsvetaeva and Boris Pasternak, Anna Akhmatova and Nikolai Gumilev, Georgy Ivanov and Irina Odoevtseva, Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Bella Akhmadulina. Poems add up to a whole kaleidoscope of stories: passionate infatuations, fatal meetings, tedious expectations, tragic breakups, painful long-distance relationships, stupid infidelities and painful divorces. And couples form strange and sometimes unexpected interweaving of destinies. Elena Revich (violin) and Polina Ossetinskaya (piano) complement poetry with music that exists in this performance along with the word.
