PENZA. At the end of the season, the Penza regional drama made a great gift to its fans - two evenings in a row. On July 5 and 6, the theater actors presented the play «Visit of the Scarlet Lady» written by the playwright from Sweden Friedrich Durrenmatt. To stage the performance, Pavel Artemyev, a young filmmaker from Moscow, was invited.

It was not just a premiere performance. «The Visit of the Scarlet Lady» was a benefit of Natalia Starovoit, to which the Honored Artist of the Russian Federation celebrated her anniversary. Sergei Kazakov, artistic director of the theater, in his speech before the start of the performance, noted that this season was rich in premieres, which became a benefit for the artists of the theater.

The first performance of the season was the production of «Kabala svjatosh», which was marked by the anniversary of the artistic director of the theater. In the middle of the season the audience saw «Filumena Marturano» - the benefit of the actress Galina Repnoy. Before leaving on vacation, the artists prepared another premiere - «The visit of the scarlet lady.» Sergei Kazakov stressed that this unusual performance should be an event in the cultural life of Penza.

The play, embodied on the stage of the Penza drama by Pavel Artemyev, has long been considered a theatrical classics. However, her directorial reading is far from the classical theater. Although the plot of the play is not so simple - it is based on events that begin in a small town after the arrival of its former resident.

An extremely rich woman today once left her hometown after the betrayal of her lover. Returning, she wants revenge for him, promising the city residents a lot of money for the restoration of justice. The tragic story is directed by the director so that in some places it turns into a tragic fare. However, the director himself says that for him this story is a story about betrayal and love, which can not be betrayed.
