But the owner of the festival, Dolgoprudniy theatre “the City” . stretched his own line “Schmitt “, showing for the second (after the “Oscar and the Pink Lady”) a performance of his play staged by Yury Solovyov – this time “Enigmatic variations” . Telling us about the two romantico (they played Andrey Dolotov and Damir Bahtiev ), who invented the story of his love, and stepped over the edge of reality, in the direction of pure metaphysics.
Chekhov’s city theatre at this time were innovative and showed “the City” by E. Grishkovets in the direction of Sergey Kramarenko .

The story of “confused soul” of the hero, rushing in search of “true life”, was played enthusiastically and accurately and “on Grishkovets” came that evening the whole city of Dolgoprudny, but in the hall was no free space.
Yet the leader and the absolute idol festival days was the Moscow regional state theatre for young people . showing Comedy P. Calderon “do not joke With love” in directing Nicholas Drucei . This young team has taken away with itself “Grand Prix” . playing avant-garde performance and extremely refined, have found the key to Spain in the XVI century special sound-the plasticity and modern drive, bringing together the scene and the audience in a unified experience of an ancient story.

This year they played “the widow’s wedding” (modification of “Flies, Zokotuhe”) – however, whatever they showed, magic, and the fragile peace of their fantasies are always fascinating, mesmerizing. And another first for the festival of Chamber theatre “pilgrim” from Kolomna . His actors with puppets played Russian epic story “earth” . involving your game hall and giving him a real treat.
Children’s performances always make up a fair part of the festival program, and many of them are very good.
