On March 28 and 29, the spring premiere will take place on the New Stage: it is the all-family performance The Cricket. Director Veronica Shakhova identifies its genre as non-fairy tale; she used all sorts of theatrical techniques for its production from playing theater and clownery and all the way for verbatim and psychological theater for its production. Big attention was paid to items and playing with them; artist Vera Sokolova (Dmitry Krymovs course) is a true co-author of the performance. The plot of the performance replicates Toon Tellegens story How the Cricket Was Recovering; it is a story how a cricket had encountered with a gloomy feeling and how he had turned free again.

On March 28 and 29, 2015, under the frames of the Days of Russian Culture in Budapest, Valery Fokins performance The Marriage will be presented on theStage of the National Hungarian Theater. Laureate in the nominations For the Best Directors Job (Valery Fokin) and For the Best Artists Job (Alexander Borovsky) of the Golden Mask National Theater Award, the performance shows the acute conflict in a person who tries to preserve his internal individual world with the reality obtaining an absurd, nearly farcical image. The story of six bachelors offering marriage to a merchants daughter Agafia Tikhonovna Kuperdyagina, who is unable to find even in her dreams and fantasies the only one who would have the entire complex of human accomplishments. 
The stage life of Gogols comedy The Marriage had started on the Alexandrinsky stage precisely 170 years ago. The great Russian actor Alexander Martynov was playing the role of Podkolesin in the premiere performance. Since that time, The Marriage has traditionally adorned the billboard of the Alexandrinsky Theater. 
 The performances will start at 19:00 and take place on the main stage of the National Hungarian Theater. The Days of Russian Culture will go from March 27 to March 30, 2015. 


22.03.2015 Greeting of the Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation Vladimir Medinsky at the opening ceremony of the Year of Literature at the Alexandrinsky Theater
Dear friends! I am glad to greet you at the opening ceremony of the Year of Literature in St. Petersburg, which we very symbolically start at the Alexandrinsky Theater. This stage has always remained faithful to the traditions of the Russian classics; it was exactly the stage on which premieres of such masterpieces of the literature as Gogols The Inspector General and Chekhovs The Seagull had taken place. As a Minister of Culture, I am extremely glad that the year 2015 was declared the Year of Literature. This is a great opportunity to remind about the enormous role and spiritual mission of the Russian literature in our history. We should be proud of the Russian language and Russian literature for the sake of preservation of the national self consciousness. I hope that under the frames of the events scheduled for this year, we will be able to hold successful educational activities resurrecting interest to national classics and facilitating progress of the literature process in our country.
It is especially important today, keeping the succession of generations, to inspire the new generation for creation of literature compositions. We should be very careful about the great traditions of the Russian literature, enhance the value of books and authority of writers in our culture. 
I congratulate all writers, poets, and literary men, and all literature admires and dedicated readers with the start of the Year of Literature. 

RF Minister of Culture V.R. Medinsky
