Sovremennik confirmed that Orbakayte had flown to Russia for the performance

Instead of staging with Renata Litvinova, they give a play with Konstantin Khabensky, but “Two on a Swing” with Kristina Orbakayte could not be postponed.

Since February, Russia has been covered by a real wave of departures. Chulpan Khamatova, Renata Litvinova, Ivan Urgant, Alla Pugacheva and Maxim Galkin left the country with their children. As a result, theaters had to look for replacements, and TV channels had to redesign broadcasting networks.

For example, the actress Chulpan Khamatova, who left to live in Latvia, was involved in several productions of the Theater of Nations. The next one is March 24. They were supposed to give a performance of Gorbachev, but it was canceled.

In the premiere production of “Master and Margarita” now instead of Chulpan comes Natalia Nozdrina. Most likely, she will remain in the lead in the play.

In “Shukshin’s Stories”, the actress received the “Crystal Turandot” award for her role, and now, most likely, Julia Peresild will play for her. The next screening of “Shukshin’s Stories” at the Theater of Nations is scheduled for April 11, 2022.

Elena Morozova is now involved in Ivanov.

The play with Renata Litvinova also had to be redesigned. But in the Moscow Art Theater. Chekhov chose not to change the lineup, but to move the productions. Instead of the announced performances “Star of your period” and “Prosecution Witness” gave “Double Bass” with Konstantin Khabensky.

“March 22 was a change of performances, but this is not a permanent decision, but a one-time one. Exclusively on the specified date.

So far there is no understanding of further replacements or repertoire changes and we cannot orient. Everything will appear on our website, “the press service of the Moscow Art Theater told Chekhov.

But the Sovremennik Theater did not have to come up with cunning options, although they have Christina Orbakayte in the production of “Two on a Swing”. She lives in America and getting to Russia is extremely difficult for her today. But the Diva’s daughter is ready to make these sacrifices for the sake of the production, in which she has been participating for several years.

“Christina Orbakayte flew to her show, everything happened. There were no cancellations or transfers, “said Ekaterina Abramova, PR director of the Sovremennik Theater in Moscow.
