On June 14 People’s Artist of Russia Viktor Andreevich Bortsov would have turned 85 years old. Unfortunately, this remarkable artist and cheerful person has not been with us for the past 11 years, but his colleagues and friends keep his memory alive. The Maly Theatre has recently published a book written by G.M. Poltavskaya and N.I. Pashkina entitled Viktor Andreevich, Step Forward.

A few years ago, Viktor Bortsov's wife Stella Sergeevna handed over the family archives to the Maly Theatre. Today we are sharing with you a tiny part of this priceless gift. We deliberately refused to publish photos in the roles, giving place to cadres who captured Viktor Bortsov in life, on stage, in a circle of colleagues.

In addition, we invite you to watch the program Revealing The Secrets Of The Stars: Viktor Bortsov on the Moscow 24 channel.
