On the 21st of October a theatrical and musical project "The Queen of Spades" was performed at the State Memorial Museum of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaykovskiy in Klin.

"The Queen of Spades" is one of the most complex, beautiful and marvelous works of Russian literature and Russian music", says the Culture Advisor to the Governor of the Moscow region Narmin Shiraliyeva about this project. "And when I heard Yevgeny Knyazev reading Pushkin's text from the scene, I immediately thought that in conjunction with the music of Tchaikovsky his monologue would be a harmonious and complete stage composition".
