Scenes from the performance

Neither snow falling from the stage, nor the severe atmosphere of Siberian prison didn't cool the spectators, who watched the drama with empathy: in the end of the performance ovations and "Bravo!" yells have been heard for several minutes.

After the premiere the press conference was held in the hall, where Dmitry Bertman, production team and soloists communicated with critiques and journalists and told about the complicated staging process. Gratitudes and praises from Dmitry Bertman were given not only to the artists, who participated in first night, but also to the rest of the cast. Kind words were also said to the artists of the choir and orchestra. Press-conference went in warm and friendly atmosphere and lasted more than hour. After that the guests of the premiere and Helikon people were invited to the buffet for refreshments.
