The world premiere of “Gogol’s Dead Souls” in the version of playwright Asya Voloshina and director Denis Khusniyarov has new laws of existence and perception on the stage.
On October 7, 1835, in a letter to Pushkin Gogol mentioned for the first time the “Dead Souls”: “I began to write Dead Souls. The plot has enlarged and becomes a long novel and seems to be very funny."
The great book of Gogol is the key code of Russian life. The generalized types of Russian characters are depicted in the images of Chichikov, Manilov, Korobochka, Nozdrev, Sobakevich, Plyushkin and others.
Asya Voloshina is one of the most prominent contemporary Russian playwrights. Her plays are staged in many theaters throughout the country and abroad. The tragic world perception that pervades Voloshina’s texts attracts the attention of main Russian directors.
