For the The 90th Anniversary of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’sbirth
A small story by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn “Matryona’s home” that was written half a century ago and first published in 1963 in the “Novy Mir” literary magazine became a great event in the literary world. This is a true story of a simple woman who is modest, conscious and has a tender, generous heart.
“We have all been living close to her but never realized that she was the most righteous, the one who holds every village and town and the whole world.”
The idea of ??creating a stage version of the story belongs to Alexander Mikhailov, who had been living with this idea for a long time before he decided to share it with Professor of the Shukin Institute Vladimir Ivanov. Desires matched.
Vladimir Ivanov has a rare directorial skill of making deep psychological analysis and superfine formulation of characters without losing author’s intonation. This skill was useful during the work with Solzhenitsyn’s prose. The performance “Matryona’s Home” was born due to the forces of The Shukin Theatre School graduates Aleksandr Mikhailov and Elena Mikhaylova, artist Maksim Obrezkov and director Vladimir Ivanov, who is the author of the stage version of the story.
The premiere of the performance took place on the Small stage on the 13thof April 2008. Natalia Solzhenitsyna highly appreciated this work.The performance “Matryona’s Home” coincides with the 90thanniversary of birth of the great writer Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.
