In the Moscow Sovremennik theatre will host a unique evening — meeting people’s artist of Russia Galina Volchek with the audience. The meeting will be held June 21 — the day when, 45 years ago was signed the order on appointment Volchek, artistic Director of the theatre, reported RIA Novosti in the press service of «Contemporary».

It is well known that Galina does not like public celebrations and always, for example, at the time of their anniversary, trying to disappear from Moscow. But the theatre managed to persuade her to meet with the audience on such a special day for her, when after the departure of Oleg Efremova she took over the management of the theatre.

«It’s just this post (of artistic Director of the theatre — ed.) — male or female — requires, in my opinion, a very big sacrifice, and not everyone is capable of. After all, the artistic Director thinks not only of repertoire, but of each dancer,» he said earlier Volchek in an interview to RIA Novosti.

During the evening Galina will answer questions from the audience, whose opinion is infinitely valuable. Questions can be any, but associated with «Contemporary» — its history, today and in the future. You can ask questions in advance by sending an email to [email protected] or directly on the evening.

Outstanding Director and a wonderful actress Galina Volchek will be on this evening in his home as artistic Director of the theatre. We are talking about six decades of living Volchek in Sovremennik.

In 1956 Volchek was one of the founders of the theater, born of the time, which is called «thaw.» It was headed «Contemporary» in 1972, in difficult times for the theatre, when the leader of sovremennikami Oleg Yefremov, left in the Mat.

She did it in submission to the decision of the company. And the life, «Contemporary», which is rightly called the theatre of Galina Volchek, a devoted love of the theatre and its artists to the audience, proves that this collective decision was not just right, but the only possible and correct.
