"Lyra Ailarova in the play Nicky Kvizhinadze got an amazing role - forty hours on the scene, along the way turning it in Medea, hamlet, Desdemona, and constantly remaining the main character - the Actress.

Ailarova cope with the role brilliantly. She is different, and that's the main thing. Actually this show not only (and maybe not so much) about the theatre - it's about life of woman. I can say that this is a very good job."

Andrey Maksimov, writer, broadcaster (Newspaper "Vechernyaya Moskva")

Assol Ovsyannikova ("Strastnoy Bulvar, 10" No. 9, 2013)

"Lyra Ailarova — actress psychological, deep, wise. Otherwise I would not have played this difficult role in the play "Casting" so pathetically, with such a rich palette of emotional tones and nuances. Her instant transformation, at times a little detached style of play, or complete immersion into the role wonderfully combines or flow into one another depending on the story line".

Sergey Rublev(film Actor): Today, at the invitation of Glory Stepanian looked another, not afraid of the word, a masterpiece of Moscow Armenian Theatre - the performance "Ode to joy". Incredibly touched by the game actress Zita Badalyan, who has managed the whole show to carry and play a 12-year-old girl lost their parents, without losing the ability to enjoy the little things. The play made me think and to remember, that we forget to enjoy simple things of our life such as sun, rain and...the absence of disease! Especially now, when overcast, it is necessary to learn to rejoice and live!

the Performance of Fame Stepanian as a box of surprises: the play of light and shadow, music and movement, the interweaving of meanings and unexpected plot twists – you never know what surprise you this "musical mayhem in two acts" in the next minute.

Here the hustle and bustle, humor, and a touch of sadness, dances and songs, silence and a deep pause. Here is such a "voyage in Armenian", touching and funny, comical, but at the same time very imaginative and deep performance. The actors recently returned from this voyage (the company toured in Paris), the new "embark" on a journey, only now on a scene of theatre GITIS.

V Festival-competition of national theaters "Moscow — city of peace"

V Festival-competition of national theaters "Moscow — city of peace"

"the Moscow Armenian theatre" under the direction of Fame Stepanian presented the play "Vai, Vai, or Voyage in Armenian", staged by G. Ter-Alexanyan artistic Director of the theatre in its set design.

the Journey of four women, a teenager and two children in a rural monastery on pilgrimage turns on the stage in an exciting adventure, sometimes very funny, sometimes touching, sometimes disturbing. On a tiny stage hung a small shed and put a few benches. This modest but carefully thought-out interior allows you to play and room in the house, and the carriage, and an Inn, and even the gap in the mountains.

Good acting. Sophia (Zita Badalyan), a short, slender brunette, elegant, friendly. At the same time, she is not averse from time to time to show the relatives your superiority — after all it was her husband pays all the expenses of the journey, but she does it, trying not to offend anyone.

the Mother of Sophia, grandmother Mato (Ani Muradyan) — direct open. She is fussing, interfering in everything and... no one interferes, no one is annoying. Very touching in its distractions of Maya (Sofia Torosian). However, detachment does not prevent her to pay close attention to the everyday little things and do it so naturally that no contradiction in her character does not occur. Ketevan (Ani Sargsyan) can be called a model of the Armenian woman. Beautiful, proud, elegant and economic, a caring mother and sister, with sadness and great reverence she recalls her deceased husband, although, in her own words, he was a great debauchee. Actress surprisingly harmonious in this role, she without any stress manages to combine contradictory traits. A very interesting young actor Andrey Arutyunov in the role of Costa, still a boy, the Bumpkin and the bully, which is already clearly evident masculine traits — the desire to protect, to guard, to lead, to organize.

Karen Martirosyan performed two very different roles. It Egor S. — intelligent, soft, dreamy, a little tired from family life and too assertive, energetic woman, but loving all my family, including two sisters. Georgian Prince — the fire, the passion, at first sight, instantly falling modest Maya and conquering her heart...

...the Show has turned out bright, festive and filled with national color and... life.

the Festival started with the opening ceremony in the capital of Artsakh Stepanakert bronze monument "Symbol of kindness" in the form of a dandelion flower, the works of world famous sculptor Grigory Pototsky. According to the sculptor the petals of a dandelion in the form of open palms symbolize the hands of representatives of different nationalities. "The earth will continue as long as we continue to be good," said Potocki.

the Premiere took place in Moscow two years ago, but after the decision on holding of the festival "Karot" in Armenia and Artsakh, it was decided to include this play in his program.

"For us the most important thing was to convey our attitude, pain, understanding, our, if you will, resentment, a sharp denial to what is happening in the play," said people's artist of Russia Igor Kostolevsky, who performed in the play the role of a German missionary Johannes Lepsius. People's artist of Russia Emmanuil Vitorgan, engaged in the role of the American Ambassador in Turkey during the First world war, Henry Morgenthau, noted that the best way to sort things out is a way of communication and agreement. "Because again there will be blood, because the people will suffer about their loved ones, the world will not" — he stressed.

the artistic Director of Moscow Armenian theatre, Director of performance Stepanyan told that the national artist of Russia Alexei Petrenko, who performs in the play the role of a scientist Bedouin, who testified at the trial before the Moscow premiere of the play did not know about the history of the Armenian Genocide of 1915 -1923. in the Ottoman Empire.

According to Petrenko, this play-action he's already grateful for what she learned about the horrific event of the Genocide of the Armenian people.

About yourself

Speaking about the role of theatre, Igor Kostolevsky noted that only in the theatre can understand the capabilities and scale of the artist to evaluate his ability and talent. "Film me, I still couldn't back everything it gave me. But theatre is, of course, for me today is a very serious thing," he said.

Vitorgan is of the opinion that people of artistic professions should be out of power, party lists, because this profession speaks of nothing else but human life. "I never gave up on negative characters and were not positive like in the movies, and in theater. Because for me it is very important that people, seeing this, understood that it is not the best way of living", — said the actor.

having complained that people often forget about the fragility of life, Vitorgan said: "We live to help each other. There are no other options, they don't exist. If not you made a man into this world, you have no right to lay a hand on him".

and the goodness Of the world

Sculptor Gregory Pototsky, who is also President of the International Academy of kindness, expressed the view that future life can be built only on the principles of kindness and understanding. "Don't look at the past, we should not look back. The Armenians suffered heavy casualties, but they are all in heaven, and the souls of all the killers will forever suffer," said he.

Developing the topic, Potocki said that the past is history, but if he is not given legal assessment, the past becomes the present. The master is convinced that Armenia needs to become a springboard for a new architecture of peace.

"In Karabakh and in Armenia forged a new policy of peace. You think the people of Karabakh can be destroyed or overcome?.. Yes, if every one kill that will also be a Genocide. Maybe this land to be free and empty, but Karabakh cannot be defeated in any war – neither nuclear nor chemical. The people there are living and will live, the war has nothing to prove, nothing military objectives cannot be achieved. Armenia will for the whole world an example of how you can achieve your goals only through peace and kindness," said Potocki.
