Valentina Talyzina celebrated her birthday on stage. First of all. In the drama “Wolves and Sheep” she played the landlady Murzavetskaya very well. Director Igor Yatsko directed this Ostrovsky bestseller, apparently, especially for Talyzina. In one case, the heroine is so established by the actress that you think that Ostrovsky painted his Meropia Davydovna for Valentina Illarionovna. Fictional colors, the actress’s wealth is rich, shining with the most accurate psychological changes that you can see in each story (and full of shame in Murzavetskaya) to show: well, yes, but how else?
The director is a little, “changed” Ostrovsky, but the scenes written by the director do not kill the taste of the classics, but! When Murzavetskaya and her nephew (Andrey Ankudinov) begin a love song about withered chrysanthemums, and the silent cameraman on the proscenium switches to his old instrument, we see images of the young, teenage Talyzina and age in different occupations later.
Yes, the work is 150 years old. The main cast is about half that. But after all, Murzavetskaya is a “sheep”, the circumstances of her life forced her to become a “wolf”. And who knows what the actor thinks when he lives a fictional character?
The long opening of the play, all these conversations of the narrator Peacock (Viktor Gordeev) and the workers Murzavetskaya owes, are cut by the director. Instead of those gathered, Peacock turns to the hallway, urging everyone to go home (“the unclean, stay, the rest, to the porch!”). On the way, Peacock fully justified his name: dressed in a camisole with some feathers on the outside, he sometimes changed into French, showing his power in every way.
The first ended with greetings to the birthday girl. The male part of the group sang an ode to the glory of Valentina Talyzina
In general, the work of the artists, Maria Rybasova and Victoria Sevryukova, deserves special mention: the clothes of the characters are very similar to the style of the 70s of the last century, but there are also many touches of other times and customs. People’s clothing needs to be considered a special work of art.
Ostrovsky’s philosophy is very cruel, about sheep and wolves changing faces and easily eating each other. However, Igor Yatsko, instead of “dark fun”, showed us only comedy: with the many loves that he experiences, from time to time it leads to the song of one and all, with fire dances, and more importantly, with sharp, second language. After the show, you just want to find these stories in Ostrovsky and read them again – how fun is it to be a classic? Basically, the director showed us a game of chess, where everyone plays with everyone, and by manipulating others, in the end the score is reduced to the result that suits the all.
The beautiful part of Murzavetskaya’s conversation with Lynyaev (Alexander Bobrovsky): “Are young girls wolves? – The worst! They look like foxes, all movements are smooth, eyes are soft, if you’re silent, it’s stuck in your throat” – and becomes the key to the whole process. It seems that women’s roles are more popular here than men’s roles. And the actresses are happy on the stage to show us the ways of “tricks of little women.” The main “sheep”, thought the singer, is the young and rich widow Kupavina. But in the works of Marina Kondratyeva, this is a Renata Litvinova of the 19th century: beautiful, broken signs, broken sound… And who knows what she will do when she feels her power?
The ending is beautiful: as the “wolves” have found their prey, Kupavina begins to turn merrily in front of the old camera, killing all the tricks. Selfie, we think. It’s like the new divas have caught the sweet tooth. It is worth mentioning that the first ended with a “carpet” greeting to the birthday girl. The male part of the group sang an ode to the glory of Valentina Talyzina with the theme “Gop-stop, we turned the corner” – “Valya, you have a lot of power, now it’s too late, we are not the stars. here, you alone on this stage..”.
And the sound of this instrumental ode is just right, so formal, so beautiful that it ends in a beautiful performance.
