Master and Margarita
Master and Margarita - Moscow, 30 June, 19:00, Stanislavskiy theatre.
Nine years ago, after shows at numerous festivals, the graduate work of the alumnus of GITIS Academy Sergei Aldonin was included in the repertoire of the Stanislavsky Moscow Drama Theatre. One can see the influence of Mark Zakharov, whose workshop Aldonin attended, in dynamic techniques and special effects of the production: actors stand on their heads and pull no punches,Satan's Ball resembles the disco club, and the jokes are replaced by gunfire. Aldonin himself called the performance "a tragicomic fantasy based on Bulgakov's" - and one should not be strict with the deviations from the classical text.
