We would like to share with you the recording of the radio program that aired on "Echo of Moscow" with the artists of the Maly Theatre Nataliya Kalinina and Stanislav Soshnikov, dedicated to the premiere of "The Tale of Tsar Saltan". Radio program hosted by Lev Gulko.
The director of the new version, Vitaliy Ivanov, kept the general concept of the production, having vivified the cast and set design.
Jealous sisters - mean Povarikha (Cook) and sly Tkachikha (Weaver). The main thing is that the characters should be like in a fairy tale - just like Pushkin created them. Practically all the young actors of the Maly Theatre are involved in this production. Actors cannot hide their excitement. It is said that the favorite fairy tale of childhood, you know by heart every line. For the graduate of the Mikhail Shchepkin Higher Theatre School, Maksim Filatov, this is the first season and the first performance here. «There are so many details there, such an atmosphere is made there, since the performance is old,» he says.
In 1999 drawings by Ivan Bilibin, who illustrated Pushkin's fairy tales, were taken as the basis for the set design of the first edition of the play. Back then the production was a huge success. But a few years ago the performance was removed from the repertoire due to the reconstruction of the theatre. Now «The Tale of Tsar Saltan» is back.
Vitaliy Ivanov, the director of all children's productions at the Maly Theatre, pays special attention to details and maintains a careful attitude towards text. «I believe that while adults are fighting, who is right, who is to blame, it’s necessary for the children to do, bring up a generation,» he says.
«The Tale of Tsar Saltan» will be recounted to young viewers by characters from other Pushkin's tales — Forest Spirit, Tsar's Son, Wise story-telling cat and Koshchei. At the same time, the story itself will not be different from the original.
