Metropolitan Theater of Satire prepares for the anniversary review ’Sad, but funny’ Automatic translate
MOSCOW. On Saturday, September 6th, a new season opened in the Moscow Satire Theater. This season, the first performance that the audience saw was the performance staged by Sergei Artsibashev, based on a play written by Jean Anouy. The name of this performance coincides with the name of its main character - «Ornifl».
The hero of the play writes original lyrics for the songs, women like him, and spoils fate. He with almost the same speed composes couplets for operettas and spiritual hymns. However, his creations are created through professional skill, they do not have the inspiration of a real poet.
Ornifle is clever, witty, but at the same time cynical enough. As always, Alexander Shirvindt will appear before the audience in this role. The theater says that Shirvindt in this role sees his hero as a charming tired skeptic. This year Alexander Anatolyevich celebrated his jubilee - the 80th anniversary.
Two days later, the audience will be presented with the first premiere. The play «Lysistrata» was written more than two thousand years ago, but its plot is still relevant today. In this comedy, written by the ancient Greek comic artist Aristophanes, it is told how the women of Greece were forced to end the war, although it was started so long ago that no one knows its causes.
The production was directed by Nina Chusova, and Alena Yakovleva becomes the main character - Lysistrata. The text from the stage was not written in ancient Greece. Nina Chusova used for the production of a retelling of the play of Aristophanes by our contemporary - Leonid Filatov.
Three weeks remain until October 1, when the Satire will celebrate the anniversary at the Theater. According to the tradition that existed from the first day of the theater’s work, his staff prepared a performance called «Sad, but funny».
