Interview with Sergey Golomazov, artistic director at Malaya Bronnaya Theatre.
- You are a native Muscovite. What are the places in the capital that you think everyone must visit?
- In addition to the most obvious tourist places, it would be of course all the central embankments, Neskuchny Garden, Lefortovo, Botanical Gardens, Zamoskvorechye and Bolotnaya Square.
- You grew up in Moscow. How does the Moscow of your childhood differ from the Moscow today?
- It is a completely different city, it has changed a lot. The beginning of the season has seen many premieres.
- Can you tell us about “Thyl” and other premieres planned for this season?
- I produced “Thyl”, based on Grigoriy Gorin’s play and in December Anton Yakovlev will open the premiere of “Macbeth” based on Shakespeare’s play. In the spring, we planned a production for children based on Oscar Wilde’s story “The Canterville Ghost”. On the Small Stage we will show Pushikin’s “Little Tragedies” directed by Yegor Arsenov and “Colombina’s Apartment” which is Yekaterina Dubakina’s second performance after she successfully debuted last year with the premiere “Suicide”.
“Thyl” is a musical performance involving a large number of actors who will perform in a guest rock ensemble. For me, “Thyl” represents the longing for a hero, for someone who does not exist, for someone pure, bright, honest, romantic. People should be in love with someone, truly in love. This is the story of an ideal citizen, a beautiful rebel who everybody would love to associate with, sit at the same table, drink together and wander on the streets. A dream of those who wish to leave, a dream which is in many ways unrealisable, but still very important in our times.
- What are the long-lived performances that the audience especially loved? These are “Warsaw Melody”, “Cancun” and the comedies: “Tartuffe”, “Inspector” and “Slavic Madness”.
- In February, your theatre will temporarily move to the Palace on Yauza because of reparation work of the stage, will this affect the creative plans of the troupe? Of course, this will affect our plans, especially economically. However, this does not mean that the creative process will come to a halt. The repertoire will continue to be enriched with new productions.
