Actor Maxim Averin made in the Opera. Not the classic with the Overture and arias. He played a major role in the new play Satire theatre, theatre “OPERANDI”.

This theatrical story is an incredible story. Three hundred and one years ago years ago the author of Gulliver of Jonathan swift wrote a letter to his friend Alexander Pope, in which he proposed to write a parody of the Opera, the heroes are not kings and ancient gods, prostitutes and thieves. The idea was brought to life by another Englishman John Gay, who created together with Johann Papusa “beggar’s Opera”. This is a satirical piece, consisting of ballads-songs in a folk style, was a huge success.

Two hundred years later the same plot in modern style, recounted Bertolt Brecht. Thanks to the music by the zongo Colonel Kurt Weill “Threepenny Opera” also became a theatrical sensation, and success is worldwide.

In the new version of the adventures of the London fraud directed by Andrei Prikotenko “OPERANDI” plays a major role again Maxim Averin. By the way, the actor who a few seasons ago left the theatre “Satyricon”, was in no hurry to accept the proposals from theatre Directors. And decided just for this theater project, which is headed by his teacher Alexander Shirvind.
