The scene of farewell Rezanov with Conchita in which
the characters communicate through an interpreter, mark Zakharov believes that one of the most
strong and soulful in performance. “My proudest moment, and when he came up, ready
was screaming myself, as once our great poet: “Ah Yes Pushkin, Ah Yes…”, —
recalled mark Anatolyevich. But in real life heroes could do without
translator, because Nikolay Petrovich Rezanov was a very educated
man, was fluent in several languages, including Spanish”.
Oddly enough, but the “Juno and Avos”, where
sound of Church hymns and the final “Hallelujah”, which perform all
the performers, in 1981, the play was allowed. Mark Zakharov with the songwriter
play Andrey Voznesensky even went to Bogoyavlensky Cathedral to put
candle of our lady of Kazan, the face of which is in the clouds above the scenery.
“Why the show took the first time – to explain not presume – reflects
Zakharov. – Perhaps his true Patriotic spirit, great music
Alexei Rybnikov – all just liked the strict members of the Commission.
Some element of the miraculous is still present, so the ascension was right
inviting me to immediately go to the temple. We eventually were allowed
play “Juno and Avos” once a month”.
