The premiere will be held at the Theatre of the musical, according to artistic director Mikhail Shvydkoi. But according to Konchalovsky, the winner of the Venice Film Festival, he would not have to define the genre of the play as a musical. He and his colleagues tried to find a genre of music that is adequate for the perception in our country, so that the result was polizhanrovaya statement, a fusion.
The authors of the libretto himself became Andrei Konchalovsky, director Mark Rozovsky and poet Yuri Ryashentsev. Libretto, written in the 1970s, had to change according to the current realities. The play is primarily aimed at young people, which has changed dramatically over the past half a century. Wrote the music for the play Eduard Artemyev, this work took him more than 20 years.
Mikhail Shvydkoi said that the stage production itself last for at least 8 months, should be allowed to still many questions, including to determine the lead actors. According Konchalovsky, the party in the musical is very complex, and therefore need to be outstanding performers.
