Krasnodar, 4 July – Yug Times. One of the most important events of the theatrical season that has just finished in the Krasnodar region was submission of the play The Tempest after A. Ostrovsky, staged by Daniil Beznosov, stage manager of the Krasnodar Youth Theatre, to Russia’s most prestigious theatrical festival - The Golden Mask. And the play’s seven nominations may be treated as a serious claim for success but also a huge responsibility in the future. Another play staged by the Youth Theatre that is worth noting was The Devil after Leo Tolstoy’s novel, staged by Denis Khusniyarov, a young stage director from St. Petersburg. This was the first performance after Leo Tolstoy in the theatre throughout its history, and a successful performance was it.
The Nutcracker staged in the New Puppet Theatre by Boris Khodyrev struck the spectators with its exquisiteness and delicacy. The Tale of Tsar Saltan (staged by Vadim Dombrovsky) was a different style, and a different layer of the fairy-tale philosophy. The Magic Swan-Geese, staged by Sergei Balykov from Astrakhan, was another new production of the theatre, aimed at the youngest audience.
Unlike the puppet theatre with its tiny house, the Palace of Arts can seat nearly a thousand spectators, so no wonder that its tasks and problems were different. For the New Year, the Palace of Arts prepared The Book of Wishes, based on fairy tales. On April 27, the Premiera Artistic Union organized a concert dedicated to the opening of the season of fountains. Their Spring Melody sounded romantic and tender. The Karasun Music Evenings played at the ground of the Summer Theatre of the Palace of Arts for the tenth year in a row, were as heartfelt and cordial as usual. And, of course, the Municipal Concert Hall of Chamber and Organ Music rejoiced the hearts of its audience. This year, the artists presented the public with lots of new programs, concerts and emotions. They like to experiment and take chances by inviting young and unknown musicians. For family art-lovers, Premiera had its season tickets valid for all Sunday matinees. This charming, delicate and educational form of communication puts the basics of musical culture into the souls of young spectators.
