The exhibition «Borovsky – Lyubimov. 30 Years Together» is open at the Memorial Museum «David Borovsky’s Workroom» from July 3.
The history of the world theatre remembers the golden age of the famous «Taganka», when the artist David Borovsky and the director Yuri Lyubimov worked together in this theatre. They collaborated not only in the Taganka Theatre and in drama theatre, but also in opera both in Russia and abroad.
According to Borovsky, an artist and a director must work together and understand each other: «ideally, their common ideas should be connected so that it would be incomprehensible, who protects whose interests». The ideal case lasted three decades, when creative mutual understanding helped not only to create unique stage works, but also to overcome various attacks on «Taganka» and such ordeals like deprivation of citizenship of Yuri Lyubimov. This exhibition helps to understand the aesthetic and ethical foundations of the partnership of two quite different persons, passionately in love with the theatre and inseparable in the history of the theatre.
The exhibition presents designs, sketches, pages of David Borovsky’s notebooks, models of drama and opera performances: «Hamlet» by William Shakespeare /Taganka Theatre, 1971/, «Boris Godunov» by Modest Mussorgsky /Teatro alla Scala, Milan, Italy, 1979/, «Vladimir Vysotsky» /Taganka Theatre, 1981/, «The Suicide» by Nikolai Erdman /Taganka Theatre, 1990/, «The Queen of Spades» by Pyotr Tchaikovsky /Karlsruhe, Germany, 1990/, «The Cherry Orchard» by Anton Chekhov /Theatre of Dionysus, Athens, Greece, 1995/, «Sharashka» after the novel «In the First Circle» by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn /Taganka Theatre, Moscow, 1998/. The exhibition author is Aleksandr Borovsky.
Performances, memorial evenings, film screenings will be also held in the context of the exhibition.
