28.04.2016 The Alexandrinsky Theater Will Be the Main Character of the Festival of Light
 

On April 29, the Festival of Light will start in Ostrovsky Square. The theaters façade will be transformed with the help of the 3D-mapping technology, and the Catherine the Great monument will be animated. It is quite symbolic that in the year of the 260th anniversary of the Alexandrinsky Theater, not only the architecture but the very history of the theater will turn into the main storyline of the premiere of the new St. Petersburg festival.

Images created by Peoples Artists of Russia Nickolay Marton and Pyotr Semak, actors Yelena Vozhakina, Dmitry Lysenkov, Sergey Yelikov and Alexander Polamishev, will enrich the performance. The original scenario of the light show includes episodes from several plays: The Inspector General, Masquerade, The Seagull. First productions of these performances, as of the most of Russian classic plays, had taken place on the Alexandrinsky Stage. The Theater had not once got back to these compositions in the course of its history; today, performances after these plays are also present in the theaters repertoire.

 The Festival of Light will start at 10 p.m. Admission is free.
