Work on a new project
«Currently, the theater’s troupe is rehearsing "Zoyka’s Apartment", the play by Mikhail Bulgakov.
There are several reasons that have determined my choice of this material: I consider its author one of the best playwrights of the 20th century, whose very often prophetic plays written almost a hundred years ago are still poignant today. You will have your chance to witness that as part of our very welcomed audience when the play opens.
We are trying to compose our dramatic work imaginatively, with fondness for the play’s creator, closely following his way of thinking. Also, Bulgakov considered himself the successor to Nikolai Gogol, the playwright whose work is so influential to our actors. Personally, I love such large-scale metaphoric stagecraft. Looking through the prism of the past, an attentive keen eye can see and interpret our present, and even foresee events in the future. You have to agree: there is a mystery unraveling when we are dealing with masterpieces of such literary giants as Gogol, Chekhov, Bulgakov...» - Irina Rogozina
