Maria Shukshina will debut in the theatre, and she will play the iconic role after 43 years after the film’s release, her father Vasily Shukshin “Kalina Krasnaya” Maria will play the role of “zaochnitsa” Luba Baykalovo, which in the film played her mother Lydia Fedoseeva-Shukshina.

Premiere
this musical play directed by Dmitry Peter will be held on 4
Dec at the theater “Russian song”, and before the show will take place opening of the exhibition of archival documents and photographs devoted to the life of Shukshin.

“This
the story of a man who wants to be satisfied emotionally, but
finds satisfaction and true happiness alone, finds refuge on
native land, — says Dmitry Petrun. My main task is to get away from Shukshin’s textbook,
the basis of his text to tell your story, to ensuring that
viewers do not wish to compare the performance with the famous movie”.

As a mother Luba will be Elena Safonova, and father — Sergey Nikonenko. Luba’s younger brother is played by Vyacheslav Manucharov, and senior — Alexander Kogan. The main role — released from prison the thief-the recidivist Prokudin — went to Andrew
Merzlikina and Yuri Kataev. In the play text Shukshin complements the music performed by Nadezhda Babkina and theatre — lyrical, comic, dance, spiritual songs and romances.
