On December 22, a poetic solo performance "Konstantin Raikin. His Voice" will be presented to the Baku audiencel. This is a solo performance where the art director of the theater, People's Artist of Russia Konstantin Raikin reads poems of his favorite poets: David Samoilov, Nikolai Zabolotsky, Nikolai Rubtsov, Osip Mandelstam, Lope de Vega, Alexander Pushkin, prefacing the works of each author with his comments.
"What I do in this performance is similar to myself, and I myself consist of different genres. Poetry, especially high poetry, is a special state of mind ... For me, reading poems and reading monologues are same. They are subject to the same laws of scenic existence that any drama role. Now I feel a wave of interest in real poetry. People lack some vitamin in their spiritual food. Some good phrases, beautiful speech...”
Pushkin read - fewer bacilli in the air will remain. He is like sound of a bell... a prayer...
My father used to tell me: "Always read poetry, do it no matter who your audience is. This will help viewers understand you more deeply and look at life at different levels," noted Konstantin Raikin.
