Stunning musical! Graph – above all praise, and if he had asked me to prom, I would have agreed! – Alain Свиридова1 /15
Irina Khakamada: “Very good! Music, sets, costumes! Earl – beautiful! Despite the fact that this is a fantasy, a fairy tale, it is delivered very human. I think if you move a story on real life, then it is also a lot of vampires and temptations, I want to sin, to break the rules in order to be free. It is a normal call. No wonder Polanski took the first play he was always interested in this topic. A good sense of humor. I especially liked when in the castle the son of Count Herbert met a young man and so he smiled happily. Well, Polanski is Polanski.”
Arkady Ukupnik: “Fantastic! Stunning musical! I love it! A complete merger of the troupe with the material! I loved it! Difficult one to allocate, so everything is together managed. Troupe as if born together with the music, very organic, all sing amazing. Music without words, it’s the best I’ve heard. I even now puzzled, too, want to write a musical, but that’s setting the bar pretty high. A lot of irony, good jokes, sometimes scary – cool!”
Evelina Bledans: “From the very first notes I am in an awesome mood! Maybe vampires and mystical characters don’t exist, but every girl, the girl in the hall, as the heroine of the musical, believes in the mystical incarnation. Actors, costumes, scenery – shivers down my spine from every scene! This performance has it all! Mystery, affection, sensuality – it’s all here, everything you can touch – I want to move there! Who wants to excite, should visit “Tanz der vampire”!”
Mitya Fomin: “I enjoy! I like it! I said to myself flawless voice, count in the performance of Ivan ozhogina – stunning!”
Philip: “Dmitry Bogachev “Stage entertainment” once again brought to Moscow a wonderful setting: the theme, though mystical, but there is a wonderful sense of humor, very beautiful music – it all came together, very festive mood! A stylish, restrained performance – with humor, with irony, everything is great! I congratulate my colleagues on this victory!”
Maxim Dunaevsky: “beautifully done, great music, acting is just beyond praise. Ironically, with humor. This, incidentally, is very difficult to do – to convey a musical sense of humor, then it is fine. From all points of view is a pleasure. Colorful, ironic, extraordinary play, the actors play very well. Then I couldn’t fault it”.
Larisa Verbitskaya: “I feel part of the spectacle that is happening on stage. Loved the orchestra, emotional conductor Mariam Barskaya. The costumes, the makeup, the action – everything is awesome!”
Anastasia Stotskaya: “I Am Delighted! I loved it! Knew it would be cool, but not that bad! Don’t like all these vampire stories, but this… Beautiful Ivan Ozhogin, humor, sets, costumes – everything! Will recommend to all! Great success, I’m happy!”
Alla Dovlatov: “Count von krolock is played by the same actor that in “the Phantom of the Opera” is an amazing actor, we voice heard! “Stage” always look for the best – don’t miss their premiere! The Ozhogin – beautiful, straight chill… When we asked if we could describe the setting three words, said, “Ivan Ozhogin rules”. We love it, wonderfully easy. And like everything: music, scenery, costumes, dancing. This, of course, a completely different level. This Is Space!”
Mikhail Barshchevsky: “Statement, as always, brilliant, the scenery is brilliant, the music is good, voices are all different – there are very good. Undoubtedly, this is a regular event. I’m generally happy when we have musicals that our audience becomes accustomed to them.”
Vladislav Tretiak: “my Impressions are very serious. I guess all musicals in the world looked this is very peculiar. At first, he turns the mood serious when you go to look at the vampire, waiting for something fabulous and mysterious. And suddenly these moments slip in with humor, and a good thing too. And the artists – they’re in the roles they play with soul, with pleasure transported to the Transylvania of the NINETEENTH century.”
