Moscow Theatres Dedicate Their First Nights To World Theatre Olympiad

Coming first nights in Moscow theatres will be staged in light of the third World Theatre Olympiad to be launched in the Russian capital on April 21 and to last until the end of June. The Russian youth theatre is to premiere Alfred de Musset's Lorensaccio, depicting a real episode from the life of the historical Medici family-a play with a wide run in Europe and all over the world. April 21 will see the first night of Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution, staged by Genrietta Yanovskaya at the Young Viewers' Theatre. According to Yanovskaya, she was inspired by the remarkable personalities and deep passions rather than the captivating plot. Yury Lyubimov from Taganka Theatre is to highlight April 23 with his version of Mikhail Bulgakov's famous "Theatrical Novel" centering on the controversial artist-power relationship.
