21.12.2015 Jubilee of Artist Mikhail Platonov
Today, artist and pedagogue Mikhail M. Platonov will turn 65. Platonov dedicated more than 35 years of his life to servicing at the Alexandrinsky Theater: production of theater models, stage partitions, performance plans and designs. He came to work to Alexandrinsky in 1978, right after graduation from the staging department of the Leningrad State Cherkasov Institute of Theater, Music, and Cinema (prof. V.V. Bazanovs class). It was exactly at his studio, located right under the theater roof that models of numerous performances had emerged; later on, they turned into true theater legends. Artist Mikhail Platonov works in a variety of genres. However, one can feel the mystery and magic of the theater in his paintings and graphic jobs. Stage models are auxiliary things which spectators can see only at a theater-historical exhibit, many years after creation of the performance. However, there is one unique Mikhail Platonovs creation which anybody can see: a masterly done model of the renovated auditorium of the Alexandrinsky Theater (with gilded portal boxes, plaster decorations of the cycles, ornamented with fine carving, the crystal chandelier and miniature chairs in the stalls) is exhibited at the lobby before the cashier booths.
