Maly Theatre in Moscow

Our production of A Profitable Position by A.  N. Ostrovsky, directed by Egon Savin, was performed on 12th May as a part of the international “Ostrovsky in the House of Ostrovsky” theatre festival at Maly Theatre in Moscow.  The audience included representatives of the Serbian embassy and a number of ex pat Serbs living in Moscow and they all loved the production which was evident in the round of applause for the whole ensemble that lasted for a number of minutes.  On this occasion, Yugoslav Drama Theatre received the certificate of honour and statue of the Festival.  A round table debate was held that same evening where theatre critics, media representatives and audience members were invited.

The previous day, Friday, 11th May, at the press conference held on the occasion of the opening of the “Ostrovsky in the House of Ostrovsky” festival, there was a great deal of interest in the Yugoslav Drama Theatre production.  On the same day, members of the Yugoslav Drama Theatre delegation were present at a forum at the Museum  dedicated to the great Russian actor Alexander Sumbatov Yuzhin where the well known Russian theatre critic Natalia Vagapova Mikhailovna spoke with great respect and knowledge about the history of our theatre.  Tamara Vučković Manojlović, CEO of Yugoslav Drama Theatre, and dramaturgue Miloš Krečković were present at the forum and answered a number of questions from the audience.

Maly Theatre is one of the oldest theatres in Russia and it first opened its doors back in 1824.  Since its inception, it has played an important role in the development of Russia’s national culture.  This theatre has been the venue for performing works by a number of Russian authors but the author most connected to it is Alexander Nikolayevich Ostrovsky whose statue stands in front of the theatre. In 1993 a festival was created under the title of “Ostrovsky in the H0use of Ostrovsky”. Maly Theatre has been a member of Union of the Theatres of Europe since 2010 (YDT became a member in 2006).

Our guest performance in Moscow had the support of the Belgrade City Council.
