On February 24, 2015, Distinguished Artist of Russia, Honored Cultural Worker of Russia, recipient of the “Golden Mask” and “Golden Soffit” Awards Ivan Blagoder will have his 60th birthday. Ivan I. Blagoder was gifted with a rare capacity to create a musical score for a performance perfectly coinciding with its general dramatic idea. Blagoder had started his career at the Leningrad Theater of Young People and continued it at the Youth Theater in the Fontanka. He came to the Alexandrinsky Theater in 2003, already a well-known and accomplished master. He has contributed to practically all performances of the core repertoire of the Alexandrinsky Theater: The Double after F. Dostoyevsky (Director Valery Fokin, 2005), The Living Corpse by L. Tolstoy (Director Valery Fokin, 2006), Flowers for Charlie by D. Keyes (Director Iskander Sakayev, 2007), The Marriage by N. Gogol (Director Valery Fokin, 2008), Ksenia. The History of Love by V. Levanov (Director Valery Fokin, 2009), Hamlet by W. Shakespeare (Director Valery Fokin, 2010), Your Gogol (Director Valery Fokin, 2011), The ZERO Liturgy after F. Dostoyevsky’s novel The Gambler (Director Valery Fokin, 2012) and many others. One more was added in September 2014: Valery Fokin’s performance Recollections of the Future after Mikhail Lermontov’s drama The Masquerade and Vsevolod Meyerhold’s performance of 1917. In this production, Ivan Blagoder acted not only as the Music Director and Assistant Director, but also as the director of the musical and intonation score, having performed a creative reconstruction of the musical and vocal culture of the Imperial Stage in a modern performance. On February 21, 2015, the list of his jobs was complimented with the premiere of The Third Choice , the second edition of Valery Fokin’s performance after L. Tolstoy’s play The Living Corpse. 
Professor of SPbSATA Blagoder pays major attention to young people’s education; since 2004, he is the Chair of the Department of Vocal and Musical Educationvat the Academy. In 2005, he had initiated and has since remained the Director of the “Singing Mask,” the Annual International Vocal Student Competition for students of theatrical higher education schools.

12.03.2015: The First Night of Re-Reading the Favorite Pages… Performance
On March 14 and 15, 2015, the first night of People’s Artist of Russia Victor Smirnov’s performance Re-Reading the Favorite Pages…  will take place. This job continues the creative cycle of the Monologues in the Tsar’s Lobby started by People’s Artist of Russia Nickolay Marton’s Monologues produced in 2012 and continued by the performance of People’s Artist of Russia Igor Volkov An Anxious Box Keeper’s Sketch-Book (2013). Re-Reading the Favorite Pages… is an authorial composition of selected chapters of the Russian prose and poetry of the 19th and 20th century. The program includes: A. Chekhov’s short story The Husband and Mikhail Zoshchenko’s Misfortune; Alexander Pushkin’s lyrics The Fall (excerpt) and From Pindemonti; Vladimir Mayakovsky’s Conversation of the Landing Ships “The Soviet Dagestan” and “The Red Ablhasia” in the Odessa Harbor and Good Attitude to Horses; and Boris Kornilov’s Caspian Swell. The one-man show genre is one of the most difficult things in the actor’s art; only real masters of the stage, such ones as Victor Smirnov, a coryphaeus of the Alexandrinsky stage, can reach the top of the tree. His earlier one-man show Farewell, Russia! (1999), created after F.I. Chaliapin’s biographical prose A Masque and the Soul was a good proof to that. 

The performance will start at 15:00 at the Tsar’s Lobby. Tickets cost 400 rubles. Theater ticket booths are open daily from 11:00 till 19:00 with lunch break from 14:00 to 15:00; tel.: 312-15-45(Major Stage) and 401-53-41 (New Stage).

The Neva-FM Radio Station and the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater installed the first in St. Petersburg “Kindness Box” in the lobby of the theater in 49A Fontanka Embankment. The “Kindness
Box” on the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater is the place where all volunteers may bring clothes, shoes, books and stationary for adults in need and children from orphanages. The project had started in 2012 and has already proved that a kind initiative of one person can inspire many people. The Neva-FM Radio Station believes that the project can turn into an all-Russia one and offers St. Petersburg residents to be the first to pick up the torch of the “Kindness Box” and share clothes, shoes, books and stationary with those who need them very much. “We are glad to host the “Kindness Box” in our theater. It is very important for me and for all our team to maintain positive and constructive endeavors. The New Stage is open for kind deeds.” (Igor Troilin, First Deputy Director of the Alexandrinsky Theater). The theater is open for visitors from 12:00 to 23:00 daily.

00.00.0000 Greeting of the Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Vladimir Medinsky at the opening ceremony of the Year of Literature at the Alexandrinsky Theater
Dear friends! I am glad to greet you at the opening ceremony of the Year of Literature in St. Petersburg, which we very symbolically start at the Alexandrinsky Theater. This stage has always remained faithful to the traditions of the Russian classics; it was exactly the stage on which premieres of such masterpieces of the literature as Gogol’s The Inspector General and Chekhov’s The Seagull had taken place. As a Minister of Culture, I am extremely glad that the year 2015 was declared the Year of Literature. This is a great opportunity to remind about the enormous role and spiritual mission of the Russian literature in our history. We should be proud of the Russian language and Russian literature for the sake of preservation of the national self consciousness. I hope that under the frames of the events scheduled for this year, we will be able to hold successful educational activities resurrecting interest to national classics and facilitating progress of the literature process in our country.
It is especially important today, keeping the succession of generations, to inspire the new generation for creation of literature compositions. We should be very careful about the great traditions of the Russian literature, enhance the value of books and authority of writers in our culture.  
I congratulate all writers, poets, and literary men, and all literature admires and dedicated readers with the start of the Year of Literature.  

RF Minister of Culture V.R. Medinsky


00.00.0000 The Marriage on the Stage of the National Hungarian Theater
On March 28 and 29, 2015, under the frames of the Days of Russian Culture in Budapest, Valery Fokin’s performance The Marriage will be presented on the Stage of the National Hungarian Theater. Laureate in the nominations “For the Best Director’s Job” (Valery Fokin) and “For the Best Artist’s Job” (Alexander Borovsky) of the “Golden Mask” National Theater Award, the performance shows the acute conflict in a person who tries to preserve his internal individual world with the reality obtaining an absurd, nearly farcical image. The story of six bachelors offering marriage to a merchant’s daughter Agafia Tikhonovna Kuperdyagina, who is unable to find even in her dreams and fantasies the only one who would have the entire complex of human accomplishments. 
The stage life of Gogol’s comedy The Marriage had started on the Alexandrinsky stage precisely 170 years ago. The great Russian actor Alexander Martynov was playing the role of Podkolesin in the premiere performance. Since that time, The Marriage has traditionally adorned the billboard of the Alexandrinsky Theater. 
 The performances will start at 19:00 and take place on the main stage of the National Hungarian Theater. The Days of Russian Culture will go from March 27 to March 30, 2015.

00.00.0000 Creative Jubilee of Distinguished Artist of Russia Maria V. Kuznetsova
Distinguished Artist of Russia Maria V. Kuznetsova will celebrate her creative jubilee, 40 years of theater service, on July 1.   Maria V. Kuznetsova came to the Russian State Academy Pushkin Theater in 1975, right after graduation from the acting department of the Leningrad Cherkasov State institute of Theater, Music, and Cinema (Professor Igor Gorbachev’s class). Her interesting creative individuality combined with enormous workability and mastership, her unique feeling of her partners and the ensemble had pretty quickly allowed Maria V. Kuznetsova to take the position of one of the leading actresses. The role of Kleonika, which Maria V. Kuznetsova had played in 1989 in Aristophanes’ Lisistrata, became a landmark in her career and revealed the actress’s comedian talent to public. The actress’s attitude to her characters, let it be Matrena from Balzaminov’s Marriage by A. Ostrovsky (1987) or tradeswoman Belotelova who had overstayed in potential brides from A. Ostrovsky’s Pictures of Moscow Life (1993); the funny and awkward witch Baba Yaga in the Fairy Tale about Love by G. Gorbovitsky (1990) or the malicious Cook from The Tsar Saltan Tale by A. Pushkin (1999); pretentious Mrs. Eynsfordhill (Pygmalion by B. Shaw, 1998) or Lady Plimder from the Lady Windermeer’s Fan by O. Wild (1998); in all her roles love had been combining with crafty irony. The present actress’s repertoire includes such roles as Fyokla Ivanovna, the Matchmaker, in N. Gogol’s The Marriage (Director Valery Fokin, 2008);  Great Grandmother of Tiltil and Mitil in Andrey Moguchy and K. Filippov’s performance The Fortune (Director Andrey Moguchy, 2011); .
Anna Pavlovna in Valery Fokin’s production of 2015 The Third Choice after L. Tolstoy (the second version of the The Living Corpse performance).
