On December 11, 12, and 13, 2015, the first night of the performance The New Time directed by the theater director of the New Stage Marat Gatsalov will take place. Here, as well as in his first job at the Alexandrinsky Theater -Telluria - after Vladimir Sorokin’s novel, he executed the double occupation of the director and production designer of the performance. He had worked on this production together with the same team which St. Petersburg public already knows after Telluria: costume designer: Lyosha Lobanov and composer Vladimir Rannev. The playwright, a young St. Petersburg dramatist, scriptwriter, and director Tatyana Rakhmanova had created this play specifically for the New Stage.

The New Time brought together coryphaeus of the Alexandrinsky Theater Company and young actors, choreographer Tatyana Gordeyeva’s contemporary dance, and impressive installations on the stage made of several tons of metal.
