GRAND OPENING OF THE STATE THEATRE OF NATIONS

Next

It took the WONDERLOFT team almost a year to prepare the opening of the most brilliant and the most booked theatre in Moscow. Its art director Yevgeny Mironov and the director of the opening ceremony Vasily Barkhatov along with our team worked out the concept of the show, telling the spectators the theatre’s history starting 1885 from the moment Chekhov and Stanislavsky met there.
 
We travelled half the world to record video messages from Helen Mirren, Robert Lepage, John Malkovich, Maya Plisetskaya, Jeremy Irons and other legendary artists. They were the ones to tell the guests of the ceremony about milestones in the history of the Theatre of Nations. 

“Everything was relaxed and happy, and when, at the end, Goran Bregovic and his orchestra were playing, everybody felt like dancing, which Mihail Shvidkoy ended up doing. And when confetti started pouring from the ceiling, minister Kudrin, say, didn't run away, he just sat there with a happy face and glitter of confetti on his suit jacket”

The ceremony featured stars like Ulyana Lopatkina, Goran Bregovic, Chulpan Khamatova and Anastasia Vertinskaya, while a few hours prior to the evening show President Putin and the Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin came to the rehearsal and, following an old theatre tradition, nailed a silver coin issued in the year the theatre was founded to the stage.
