The Theater Marathon is the largest event of the Year of the Theater. 85 regions of Russia participate in this marathon. It started in January in Vladivostok, and will come to an end at the end of the year at the most western part of the country - Kaliningrad. The marathon takes place in the form of a theater relay: regional theaters go on tour and give a special symbol of the Year of Theater to the next participating theater. In addition to performances, in each region there will be a mobile photo exhibition about the history of theaters and leading actors and directors will hold master classes and creative meetings.
Astrakhan is determined to be the only region of the theater relay transfer in the south that will take place on August 30 and will be marked by the brightest and most anticipated premiere of the open air opera “Ruslan and Lyudmila” by M. Glinka on Cathedral Square of the Astrakhan Kremlin. The premiere will be held on August 30 and 31. The event also plans to open the exhibition of the federal museums collections with the support of the Russian Cultural Foundation.
