According to CEO Mary Revyakina Festival this year was particularly favorable for regional theaters. More than 60% of the poster is made up of imported productions. And it’s always the most interesting and exciting part of the festival, which just proves: Russian theater exists not only in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

But “Moscow Operetta” at one time expressed an unwillingness to cooperate with the festival, despite this, quite deservedly received a nomination for “Bal” Savoy ».
