June 7, 2017 19:24


The Tolstoy Weekend Festival will take place in the open air in the Yasnaya Polyana museum-estate from 9 to 11 June.
A special version of the opera War and Peace performed by the troupe of the Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Academic Musical Theater will open the theater festival on June 9 at the main stage.
"The opera War and Peace, created by Felix Korobov, Alexander Titel and Vladimir Arefyev, is justly considered one of the most striking performances in the repertoire of the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Theater. With all of its shows unmistakably sold out, the stage production took part in Opera Europa, toured in China and was demonstrated on television twice,"- the organizing committee informs.
A special version of the opera War and Peace will be performed at the main stage on June 9.
This grand show staged by Lyudmila Naletova specially for Yasnaya Polyana will be presented by more than 100 people, including opera soloists, supernumeraries and the orchestra of the theatre. The main parts will be sung by Natalya Petrozhitskaya (Natasha Rostova), Dmitry Zuev (Andrei Bolkonsky), Nikolay Erokhin (Pierre Bezukhov), Anatoly Loshak (Napoleon), and Roman Ulybin (Kutuzov).

The main program of the Tolstoy Weekend festival
includes performances of the Vladimir Mayakovsky Moscow Academic Theater and the Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Musical Theater.

Several stages of the festival will also present performances of the Dmitri Brusnikin Studio, the Koleso Theater from Togliatti and the A. Lunacharsky Sevastopol Academic Russian Drama Theater. The festival organizers are happy to announce that they have found several productions based on writings by Leo Tolstoy in small theaters of Moscow and are going to introduce them in various places of the Tolstoys’ family estate.

According to tradition, interpretations of Leo Tolstoy’s works will be performed on four open-air stages of the festival. This year, the program also includes stage productions after writing by other authors as well. Over the course of three days, more than 20 events, such as performances, storytelling, and public discussions, will take place at several venues of Yasnaya Polyana.

The Volkonsky House is going to become a discussion platform welcoming Russian and European stage directors to talk about stage productions after writings by Leo Tolstoy. A special program will be arranged for children in the apple orchard of Yasnaya Polyana.
A new phenomenon for the Tolstoy’s family estate and the festival Tolstoy Weekend in 2017 will be the participation of the Liquid Theater. Yasnaya Polyana and the Liquid Theater will present a unique performance combining the experiences of street, physical and visual theaters.

Yasnaya Polyanais a unique Russian farmstead, the family estate of Leo Tolstoy (1828 - 1910). This is where the great Russian writer was born, lived most of his life, and was laid down to rest. In the 18th and 19th centuries a unique manor landscape with parks, gardens, picturesque alleys, ponds, a rich orchard house, and an architectural ensemble including a large manor was created here. Now Yasnaya Polyana is a large museum complex, a recognized cultural center of world significance.
