“The collective of the Maly Theater fully supports the decision to assign the name of our great poet and educator Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin to the Sheremetyevo International Airport. This name is known not only to connoisseurs of poetry, but also to all who love Russia. Let everyone arriving and visiting our country be consecrated by this great genius, ”said Valery Afanasyev, People’s Artist of the Russian Federation, adding that the theater recently returned from a tour in Yekaterinburg, where the actors also flew from Sheremetyevo.

Gogol, “The Masquerade” by M. Yu. Lermontov, “The Youth of Louis XIV” by A. Dumas the Father, “The Heart is Not a Stone” and “Not everything to the carnival carnival ”A. N.
