Ulyanovsk Region to Launch Cultural and Educational Programme "Playing Prokofiev"
The project of the Premiere Theater Support Fund and the Ulyanovsk Youth Theater received a grant of the Russian Culture Fund.
The programme's implementation is financed by the federal project "Creative People", which is part of the national project "Culture" initiated by President Vladimir Putin.
The project will be launched in May and will work until November 2021. It is planned to create Peter and the Wolf stage play during this period. This stage performance will be dedicated to the 130th anniversary of the birth of famous composer Sergei Prokofiev, as well as the 85th anniversary of the symphonic fairy tale for children "Peter and the Wolf". It stars actors of NEBOLSHOY THEATRE who will be accompanied by an orchestra from the Governor's School of Art for Gifted Children. Honored Artist of the Russian Federation Eduard Terekhov will direct the play.
“Thanks to support of the Russian Culture Fund, a Cultural and Educational Programme "Playing Prokofiev" will be prepared for residents of our region to celebrate the anniversaries. The unique format of this project will bring together professional actors and young musicians of the region on the same stage. The theatrical production is mobile, so it will be possible to perform it at various cultural venues in the region,” said Marina Korneva, director of the Premiere Theater Support Fund, production director of the Ulyanovsk Youth Theater.
The Governor's School of Art for Gifted Children acts as a partner of the programme.
