The Oscar-winning director, the maestro of the Russian cinema Nikita Mikhalkov will come with tours to Astrakhan for the first time

Within the framework of the federal program "Big Tours", the performance "12" will be given at the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theater on December, 23 and 24. The author of the production is Nikita Mikhalkov, the artistic director of Center for Theater and Cinema, the People's Artist of Russia.

The stage play "12" premiered on the Historical Stage of the Bolshoi Theater in April, 2021. The production was based on the same name film and was staged by Nikita Mikhalkov in collaboration with the Presnyakov brothers, the playwrights. The director's team also included: the production designer Yuri Kuper, the composer, the People's Artist of Russia Eduard Artemiev.

The play is a reflection on such things as freedom, compassion and willingness to help a complete stranger in trouble; it is a serious conversation about the problems that worry everyone today. The main idea of the work is always relevant: the law comes first, but what should be done when mercy seems to come before the law?

The following actors take part in the performance: the People's Artist of Russia Nikita Mikhalkov, the People's Artist of Russia Nikolai Burlyaev, the People's Artist of Russia Sergei Stepanchenko, the Honored Artist of Russia Vladimir Dolinsky, the artists of the Center for Theater and Cinema in Povarskaya Street under the direction of Nikita Mikhalkov, Gia Peradze, Igor Sergeev, Sergei Radchenko, Alexander Vedmensky, Anton Netbai, Arseny Zonnenshtral, Yuri Shipkov, Alexander Kizhaev, Ramiz Kyalbiev, and the Moscow children's Abkhaz choreographic ensemble “Amtsabz” (the Artistic Director Lasha Marykhuba). Our townsman Vladimir Kochetkov will also take part in the production, he will play the tenth juror. Mikhalkov himself, as in the film "12", plays the role of the jury chairman, who commits the most important act that changed the fate of the defendant.

The Moscow stars will give only two performances in our city.

Tickets can be purchased at the theater box office (66 -76 - 30) and on the website of the Astrakhan Opera and Ballet Theater.
