Alexander Bastrykin attended a special event in commemoration of the 120th anniversary of Maxim Gorky Moscow Art Academic Theatre.
Under Tatyana Doronina, the theater carefully keeps the traditions established by its creators, vividly reflecting the realism of Russian and foreign classics in their performances.
In his congratulatory speech, Alexander Bastrykin noted that “the history of the Theater is inextricably linked with the world history, the history of the country and its people. Truly the Art Theater, as well as the legendary names of its founders Konstantin Stanislavsky and Vladimir Nemirovich-Danchenko, became an important part of the world theatrical culture. It is for sure that, largely due to the tireless care and leadership of Tatiana Vasilyevna Doronina, we see and find here an island of love, joy and desire to convey to the audience the ideals of kindness, happiness, and cordiality.”
The Chairman of the Investigative Committee of Russia also stressed that frequent guests at the performances of the theater were officers of the Investigative Committee and members of their families, and relations between the IC and the theater had grown into a strong friendship. With all the difference in the spheres of activity of Maxim Gorky Moscow Art Academic Theatre and the Investigative Committee, the desire to make life cleaner, better, kinder unites everyone.
Alexander Bastrykin concluded his congratulations with departmental awards to Tatyana Doronina and a number of other theater artists.
A creative gift on behalf of the staff of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, a song dedicated to the artistic director and the theater team, presented one of our officers. Tatyana Doronina appreciated the gift with her inner sincerity. “A beautiful song, impressive lyrics”, she said.
