The premiere of the play ’War and Peace of Tolstoy’, which became a guide to the famous novel automatic translate
ST. PETERSBURG. Premier of the original stage reading of «War and Peace» was presented to the BDT. It is difficult to imagine how you can translate such a large-scale novel by Leo Tolstoy on the stage. However, Victor Ryzhakov decided that there is no sense in retelling the text of the novel, we should not try to create illustrations to the chapters of «War and Peace» with the help of scenic techniques.
The authors of the play offered the audience a kind of excursion on certain chapters of Tolstoy’s novel. The subtitle to the play, dubbed «War and Peace of Tolstoy,» warns in advance about his genre. «Guide to the novel» - this phrase fully determines the content of the play. For some viewers, this approach will be an occasion for a more thorough acquaintance with Tolstoy’s epic.
The creators of the play gave the audience for a tour of the novel only two hours. However, everyone knows that the duration of the excursion is not so important as the competence of the guide and his ability to present his knowledge to the public. Spectators who visited the tour of the famous novel were lucky - in the role of the museum’s Natalia Ilinichny on the stage of the BDT, the unique Alisa Freindlich.
The guide, a miniature lady in modest but elegant clothes, looks like a teacher with an astute look. It is not for nothing that she constantly reminds viewers of ridiculous phrases from school essays on «War and Peace». It is possible that Alisa Freindlich embodies the image of Natasha Rostova, who became our contemporary, because among the representatives of families, identified by the author in the play, the most beloved heroine is not.
Performance spectators perceived differently, but indifferent to the statement in the hall did not remain. Especially the feelings of the public were touched in the final stages - the director presented the audience with three finals.
