2003 year (13 – 15th of June)

V  International theatre festival «Melpomene of Tavria»

 

Hurray! The fifth festival “Melpomene of Tavria” this year became international and lasted four days. Traditional theatre concert party made audience laugh four hours. When actors, guests and spectators were going home 152 taxis were called not counting buses which took actors.

Cherkasy Theatre staged Mykolay Gogol’s play “Marriage” directed by Andrii Zholdak. During the performance seven buckets of rubble, two buckets of sand were dusted and one bucket of water was poured out on the stage. It was a great success. The General manager of the Theatre Oleksandr Knyha was a bit shocked and apologized to the actors of Mykolaiv Theatre, who sang opera “”Kateryna” on stage after Cherkasy Theatre and breathed the dust left by previous performance.
