Director Savva Saveliev crashed the canons of celebrating theater anniversaries. He revised the theater's heritage and built the performance around pieces from Hamlet, The Cherry Orchard, The Good Person of Szechwan, Master and Margarita and The Lower Depths.
No speeches and nostalgia. Just a modern ballet with allusions to the most honored plays of the theatre. The discussion about freedom and non-freedom was developed by musicians from Shortparis music band and dancers led by the winner of the Golden Mask Awards choreographer Vladimir Varnava. The theater's legendary actor Alexander Trofimov also took to the stage amid loud applause of 400 viewers.
