Legendary Russian actor and theatre director Konstantin Raikin will recite verses of Russia’s favorite poets including David Samoilov, Nikolai Zabolotsky, Nikolai Rubtsov, Osip Mandelstam, Lope de Vega and Alexander Pushkin.
“ I myself am composed of different genres. Poetry, especially high poetry, is, after all, a special state of mind … Reading poetry on stage obeys the same laws as any other form of drama. I feel that lately there is a major wave of interest in real poetry. People lack some kind of vitamin in their spiritual food. Some good phrases, beautiful speech … Read Pushkin – and less disease will remain in the air.” Konstantin Raikin.
