Performing a number from the musical “Anna Karenina”, Gusev told of a mystical coincidence: “Many years ago, celebrated the anniversary of the Vakhtangov theatre — I went to the Shchukin school. The event we, the students, dressed in the best outfits from the wardrobe of the theatre, were built by a live chain to the school and performed a waltz in… years. And recently in the Museum theater I saw the same gown in which she danced the waltz. And underneath, the sign: “Outfit Lyudmila Maksakova of the theater Vakhtangov “Anna Karenina”. Here is a mystical prediction.”

Funny video message sent to the Moscow art theatre.Chekhov. And the youth of “Lenkom” parodied the TV show “What? Where? When?”: in her “worker from Georgia” Nikolay Tsiskaridze asked about the most popular Georgian dance. “Experts” went through a bunch of options and then decided that it was tango. But the host of the TV show corrected them: “In tango, and Wah!Tango!”.

The main intrigue of the ball was his
“subtitle” — “waiting for the king”. The hostess Turandot promised that the ball will visit the king himself. The audience thought that we are talking about Oedipus, a play which recently put the troupe artistic Director Rimas Tuminas. But the correct answer is found only in the very end of the holiday. The king, the hero of the occasion, declared the hero of the day, the Vakhtangov theatre. And here on a scene there were representatives of all departments of the Vakhtangov actors, makeup artists, costume designers, ushers.

Was not on stage only Tuminas, the artistic Director and some of the leading artists of the troupe. The reason for their absence was respectful: this day Tuminas, was premiered at the musical theatre of Stanislavsky and
Nemirovich-Danchenko. The Director has set up the Opera of Bartoka “the Lock of the Duke the
Bluebeard” and Igor Stravinsky’s “Oedipus the King”.
