    You enter the foyer of the drama theater, and the hullabaloo falls down on you: a lot of guests give clothes to the wardrobe, someone changes their shoes, someone talks to old acquaintances and friends.

  • The Brothers Karamazov

    Horror, the anticipation of blood and crime, coupled with a mystical mood is in the air from the first minutes of the play. The riot of feelings and emotions envelops everyone who is in the audience: both the viewer and the actor himself. From them you can not escape into the corridor or buffet, you can not hide under the armchair or behind the back of your neighbor. They are going to overtake everyone.
