“After the first rehearsal, which, in my
view, was extremely unfortunate, I said, “I will not do it,
it’s still not my business, — says Posner. — Well, the second rehearsal went well. And then I got carried away. To participate in the play where you are the Director of a very
professional, talented, where there are other actors, and where the
the main thing — music, all this
together were for me incredibly fascinating…”

“Hell, soldier, and violin” is a new interpretation of the famous “history of
soldier” by Stravinsky, timed to the 135th anniversary of the
the composer and the 100th anniversary of the work itself. The idea of staging was born violinist and conductor Dmitry Sitkovetsky. He included in the play in addition to tunes from “the history of
soldier” rooms and other works of Stravinsky, written at about the
same time — “Mavra”, the ballet “fairy’s Kiss”.

The text of the play written by the poet Mikhail
The assumption on the fairy tale about “a fleeing soldier and
boundaries” from the collection Afanasyev in the style of “reechnogo verse”, similar to modern rap: “…Past the river, past meadows,
on the highway “Derbent – Kaluga” it was the soldiers of their country in an undeclared war.”
So in this tale, there are offshore, and the Internet, and oil
the oligarchs.

Director Michael
Kolarov joined in the play music, theatrical games, reading tradition, pantomime, visual arts (on large screens come to life drawings Makarevich) and even hip-hop: “the Main
the intrigue of the show was the participation of three “non-professional”:
Posner, Makarevich and Sitkovetsky, combining
the role of devil with violin”.

“I’m afraid it was interesting to work
on this performance, — says Makarevich. Mad cocktail: the music of Stravinsky (in fact there would be
modern jazz and rock-n-roll without Stravinsky!), the tale in Afanasyev
brilliant poetic transcription, “actors” …”
