It was the desire of the Lyubimov to farewell took place in the theater, where he once started and successfully developed his acting career. Lyubimov already colleagues called immolate themselves – for honesty and eternal revolt – against the system and all that is considered unfair.

And, probably, it will be a performance dedicated to his memory, and he returned home twice – with the performance, and here, on the day of farewell to him, “- said the artistic director of Vakhtangov Theater Rimas Tuminas.
Hence, from the Vakhtangov, in the 64th Lyubimov went to an independent director’s swimming, which lasted half a century. Created Taganka – the most uncomfortable and one of the most prominent theaters of his time, which opened a new page in the theatrical history of the country.

Amazing man, because he found the strength, despite his advanced age, to create and work until the very end. This is an example to all young directors – about him, I will speak to students, “Now, look, here to serve as art, so you need to live here, ‘” – promised Rector Schukinkogo school Yevgeny Knyazev.

And died in one day. There is no longer the time, no Yuri Petrovich. He seemed to be gone when no longer be necessary. Has left his audience, left the interest in the idea, which has been in the theater, to the style. Gone is the need to think of sitting in a theater hall “, – said Yuri Rost.

Many do not even understand the word – kabatinstvo. You can decipher the word tavern, you can – as you want, but it was clear that word. Kabatinstvo, due to the fact that the young man that comes into your life, not to be pleased with himself. That complacency – that he hated in the actor “- says People’s Artist of Russia Alexander Kalyagin.
Bid farewell to the master came friends, colleagues and admirers. With many of them Yuri Petrovich worked until recently. “All this year I was at home with Yuri Lyubimov, I think 2-3 times a week. And we endlessly discuss the future performance of “School for Wives” and we discussed not only the performance. We talked about life, about politics, about everything, “- says the artist Boris Messerer.
