New theatrical productions and the final preparations for the Christmas festival discussed on Wednesday the mayor Sergei Sobyanin at a meeting with actors and the artistic Directors of the Metropolitan theatres.

This was announced by the mayor of Moscow Sergei Sobyanin during the meeting with figures of theatre arts, which was held at the State theatre of Nations.
«Eugene (Yevgeny Mironov – approx. ed.) gushes ideas. Just recently he has a new idea: he came to me with the idea of holding theatrical festivals and festivals not normal, not in theatre buildings and public spaces of the city of Moscow», — said the mayor of the city.
Sobyanin called this idea logical. He noted that the capital is transformed, in the city, new opportunities. «Theater in General is experiencing a Renaissance. This is evident by the example of those theatres that we all know and Bolshoi theatre and of the theatre of Nations, Moscow Helikon Opera and other theaters,» — said Sobyanin.
According to him, also in the city carried out a great job of tidying up public spaces. They were included in the cultural life of Moscow, in the squares and streets of the capital every year, various festivals, which involved a huge number of people.
«It seems to me that the proposal was interesting and logical. As the first trial step would be to hold a joint event in the framework of the «Journey to Christmas», the most popular festival among Muscovites and guests of the capital», — quotes the words of Sobyanin AGN «Moscow».
The mayor said that it would be great if these events will actively participate as the city’s theatres and theatres from other regions.
