Musical "Vladimirskaya Square": such "Humiliated and Insulted" Dostoevsky not even imagined

September 26 2005

In Moscow, from September 28 to October 1 at the Maly Theatre of Russia will be represented by the first Russian musical "Vladimirskaya Square on the novel FM Dostoevsky's The Insulted and the Injured. " This setting was realized earlier in the Perm Academic Drama Theatre on the music of Alexander Zhurbin.

The musical was held on February 4, 2005, and since the "birth" is an incredible spectator interest.

A few months after the official publication, the spectacle, which with a light hand theater critics was named for the opera's theater, was presented at the Tenth Festival of Russian theater in Marseille, which created a furore. Each presentation was held at a constant sold out and ended with a standing ovation, as a result Theatre Forum Vladimirsky Square "was named the main event.

According to the director of the festival, the famous French actor and director Richard Martin, the show Vladimirskaya Square has managed to "seize the heart of the sophisticated French public.

The uniqueness of this production is that the first time as a literary basis for the musical was taken by Russian classic novel. And with that, the author of the libretto Vyacheslav Verbin managed to preserve and pass on the main nerve of the product - the story of trampled love, broken lives and the hardness of souls.

Undoubtedly, one of the main components of the incredible success is the penetration of music by Alexander Zhurbin, and directed the famous film director Vladislav Pasi.

In this incredibly ambitious statement, built on contrasts, occupied almost the entire group of Permian theater. What is the most important difference, "Vladimir area, so that's what it will be a live musical with a real orchestra and the voices of the living artists.

Alexander Zhurbin confident that "if Dostoevsky saw the play, he would have liked."

Artistic director of the Perm Academic Drama Theatre Boris Milgram:

"..." Vladimirskaya Square - a unique spectacle. This is a true example of Russian musical. When serious literature translated into the language of poetry and music, get a fantastic musical and dramatic action.
In our theater, which now feels his trail, looking for your own face, there is great interest in various experiments. Samples of the theater genre of music are interesting, expressive and showy. But Dostoevsky can not just sing. He wrote the story must be told so that she has found an echo in the soul of our audience .... "

Director of the play, Vladislav Pazy:

"..." The Insulted and Injured "- a work written by a great writer so that it was a success in many different layers of readers. And now, I hope - and the audience.
Vladimirskaya Square - the place the sign. Here were are two apartments Dostoevsky - the first and last, there is a museum of the writer. Vladimirskaya Square is the scene of some scenes of this novel. And, perhaps most importantly: the Vladimir area and porch in front of the Cathedral of the Vladimir Mother of God - St. Petersburg location humiliated and insulted, as it was before, so there is now.

I wanted not just a performance for the 300-year anniversary of St. Petersburg, not just adapt a novel Dostoevsky - sing it. To left is not a concert, a play in which there is a psychological action, deep and complex relationship between the characters.Is consistent with this idea is not so simple poetry of a talented poet Vyacheslav Verbina and music by Alexander Zhurbin.

We are artist Alexander Lipovskii tried to create an image of St. Petersburg. Intertwining staircases, rooms, cage homes in which people locked up - it's an absolute Peter.

Musical - normal genre through which one can carry out any thoughts and feelings. The success of the play depends on the talent of people who are doing it .... "
