Theatre in the Lead Role - is the project of three artists - Alexandra Suvorova, Maria Suvorova and Anna Platonova. The exhibition features a series of works about the Bolshoi Theatre and a number of other Moscow venues. The level of theatrical art is the pride of Russia. Ballet, magnificent operatic voices, best-known artistic directors - are what the world associates Russia with. The artists were very interested in researching the ceremonial life of stalls and foyer as well as the off-stage living, full of thorough rehearsals, costume fittings, scenery drawings. Artists' works represent architectural solutions of famous halls, sketches of ballet classes, production process and portraits of theatrical figures. This project is devoted to many-sided theatrical life.
