Arts councils in Russian theaters should be revived, because their abolition is detrimental to the state of the theatre, said to RIA Novosti, people’s artist of Russia Nikolai Burlyaev.

Earlier, the people’s artist of Russia, actor and singer Mikhail Boyarsky in conversation with RIA Novosti called for the establishment of the arts Council, which could assess the merits of works of cinema and theatre.

«The idea we announced at the Public Council at the Russian Ministry of culture two years ago. The discussion was attended by about 50 prominent figures of the theatre such as Yuri Solomin, Oleg Basilashvili, Tatyana Doronina,» said the artist.

«We talked about the fact that the abolition of the arts Council, taking place everywhere in our theatre, detrimental to his condition. «Effective management» usurp all the power in the theater goes completely arbitrary. It concerns the spiritual life, as these managers are far removed from the theater. They cause a lot of damage. Lack of control in this area harms the theatrical process,» Burlyaev said.

He recalled that the artistic Council in the theatres have always existed, and this practice should be back. However, he noted that the minutes of the meeting of the Public Council was sent to the leadership of the Ministry of culture, but there was no answer. «We need the artistic Council, which consists of theatre professionals that suggest something to the management», — concluded the Agency interlocutor.
