Despite the fact that the musical has stood for 50 shows, he is still undergoing significant changes. For example, for the new season Artemyev completely rewrote the first Aria and made several significant changes. Original interpretation of the novel presented by Andrei Konchalovsky and Yuri Ryashentseva, brings the characters into the Russia of the late twentieth century. This allowed the creators of the show to find unexpected angles of the problems and issues raised by Dostoevsky.

“This performance is one of the most difficult for the Russian stage. It is not inferior in its complexity and entertainment Broadway plays. We moved the heroes of the novel of Dostoevsky in the modern era, but also as in the ancient drama and of the tragedy it is fashionable to find today’s characters, and Dostoevsky as a great classic, the characters are absolutely in tune with the current time. People not changing the phone model. Dostoevsky is versatile in every sense, and is so detailed that few people climbed into the nooks and crannies of the human soul as Fyodor,” — said Konchalovsky.
