14.01.2016 Comments of Artistic Director of the Alexandrinsky Theater Valery Fokin
Dear colleagues! After the broadcast of Free Format show in which issues of censorship in culture had been touched (Echo Moscow radio station, 12.01.2016), new circumstances have come out. 
I said in the ether that a play of young playwright Kirill Fokin, which he had created after his novel Fire by theaters order, had undergone censorship by request of the Ministry of Culture (presently, I am in the final stage of working on a performanceToday. 2016 after this play.) After the broadcast, I have received a well-founded letter from the Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky refuting this fact. The Ministry had never sent a request for introduction of the play and, according to the actual law, it even had no rights to issue such request even as a recommendation. The procedure and regulations for censorship which I had told about in the yesterday interview do not exist. However, the theater did send the play for some internal review. I cannot exclude that someones private initiative could be considered as an official request. On its part, the theater intends to find out the causes of what had happened. I am bringing my official apologies to the Ministry of Culture and listeners to the Free Format show.

21.12.2015 Jubilee of Artist Mikhail Platonov
Today, artist and pedagogue Mikhail M. Platonov will turn 65. Platonov dedicated more than 35 years of his life to servicing at the Alexandrinsky Theater: production of theater models, stage partitions, performance plans and designs. He came to work to Alexandrinsky in 1978, right after graduation from the staging department of the Leningrad State Cherkasov Institute of Theater, Music, and Cinema (prof. V.V. Bazanovs class). It was exactly at his studio, located right under the theater roof that models of numerous performances had emerged; later on, they turned into true theater legends. Artist Mikhail Platonov works in a variety of genres. However, one can feel the mystery and magic of the theater in his paintings and graphic jobs. Stage models are auxiliary things which spectators can see only at a theater-historical exhibit, many years after creation of the performance. However, there is one unique Mikhail Platonovs creation which anybody can see: a masterly done model of the renovated auditorium of the Alexandrinsky Theater (with gilded portal boxes, plaster decorations of the cycles, ornamented with fine carving, the crystal chandelier and miniature chairs in the stalls) is exhibited at the lobby before the cashier booths.
