Performances based on the works of Pushkin, Bulgakov, Filatov and other authors, as well as lectures on the works of Chekhov and Dostoevsky in Russian and Spanish, will be held as part of the 5th Russian Theater Week, which opens on April 19.

The organizers of the Week were the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Madrid and the artistic director of the Balagan Russian theater Jose Luis Checa-Ponce. The program included performances for adults and children performed by leading Russian-language theaters in Spain.

Screenings will be held in person in compliance with epidemiological requirements. Performances based on the works of other Russian authors will take place in the center of Madrid - at the Casa de Vacas exhibition complex, located in the Retiro Park.

The organizers of the festival will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Fyodor Dostoevsky. The program of the Week will be opened by the performance of José Sanchez Sinisterra, who is considered the leading Spanish specialist of Dostoevsky's work.

Eyewitnesses have said and written a lot about the events of the Great Patriotic War, about the ordeals suffered by the people. Every family has at least one story from this tragic period in our country’s life.

And that 18 years later, he would finally return to his homeland to see new openings for both life and creativity.
