. More than two dozen photographs taken in the years 2015-16 journalists MIA «Russia today» in Syria and one of its largest cities, Aleppo, made a photo exhibition titled «War and… the world?». The exhibition opened in the foyer Zimin Moscow musical theatre «Helikon-Opera», timed to the premiere of his latest 27-th theatre season — the production of the famous Verdi’s «Il Trovatore». The exhibition will see not only the audience premieres in late June — early July, but visitors to the Museum of «Helikon-Opera».

The fate of Aleppo, one of the oldest cities in the world and its inhabitants is a cross-cutting theme of the exhibition. In pictures of renowned photographers MIA «Russia today», Valery Melnikov, Ilya Pitalev, Mikhail Voskresensky and Michael Alaeddin captured the tragic consequences of the military conflict, introducing chaos and devastation in the lives of ordinary people and in the appearance of the great cities. Photo exhibition shows that the tragedy of war there is no Statute of limitations, and throws a bridge from the history of medieval blood feuds, embodied in the story of Verdi’s «Il Trovatore» to the tragic events of the XXI century in Syria. Modern war — senseless and merciless — a little different from the events of the romantic Opera, Verdi and the picture makes feel their frantic cruelty.

: «The exhibition «War and… the World?» brings together the photos made by wonderful artists and courageous journalists in the warring Syrian Aleppo, and the porcelain work of the Moscow sculptor Ella Adam, made in the aesthetics of the archaic East. This exhibition, timed to the premiere of Giuseppe Verdi’s Opera «Il Trovatore» — that alien culture, mentality, faith can not only cause the desire to destroy, to erase from the face of the earth obscure otherwise. They can surprise, inspire, motivate so deep into this culture, the man himself will be to create works saturated with history and other people, warmed by its sun. Because, in the end, says Dmitry Bertman, we are all earthlings, children of one mother, and this is our World».

Photojournalist MIA «Russia today», the winner of World Press Photo 2017 Valery Melnikov described his perception of the consequences of the Syrian conflict: «… the looming disaster the chaos of war was replaced by peace and tranquility.

The future of Syria and its citizens disappeared in a puff of smoke, another exploding shell. The country in which I was in love a few years ago, turned into shards. The shards of a broken silence».
