ST. PETERSBURG. On the New Stage of Alexandrinsky on September 25 the premiere of Shakespeare’s play Macbeth was staged by the famous Polish director Krzysztof Garbachevsky. With this performance, the director completed the trilogy of plays on Shakespeare’s plays. It was started by staging the «Storm» in Wroclaw, continued by Hamlet on the stage of the Old Theater in Krakow.
The production of the play «Macbeth» was for Gorbachevsky a debut on the Russian stage. The premiere takes part in the festival «Alexandria», which is taking place now in St. Petersburg. Usually to watch performances on the New Stage come prepared spectators, ready for surprises, because this stage space was conceived for the embodiment of the director’s experiments.
However, Garbachevsky with his work surprised not only the audience, but also the artists participating in the play. Actively using modern technical capabilities, experimenting with video, light, sound and computer graphics, he actually destroys the border separating cinema and theater. When Marat Gatsalov, the chief director of the New Stage, saw the run of «Macbeth», he was delighted with the director’s work and the actors’ play, calling the performance not just a talented work, but an outstanding production.
The first minutes of the performance actors are not on the stage, but behind the scenes. The audience sees them on the screen installed in the hall. The close metal container, where they are, is a metaphor that sends spectators to the time of totalitarianism, when people were in some kind of enclosed space. There are many such metaphors in the play. The director did not use ready-made solutions, invented in advance. Most of the director’s techniques were born during rehearsals. «Theater installations» - so Krzysztof calls his works.
