The Violet of Monmartre: an Operetta in 2 Acts
An enthralling story from the life of the Parisian boheme. Three talented young men live in a small attic in Monmartre and dream of creating artistic masterpieces. They work tirelessly, not letting their poverty and obscurity stop them, until finally luck smiles at them and their dreams begin to come true. Two women play a great role in the young artists’ fates: the calculating beauty Ninon and the young flower seller Violetta, and it is around the two girls that most of the operetta’s intrigues unfold.

CUTTING-EDGE EXPERIMENTAL THEATER
April 29 at 7pm
#PrayForPodsekalnikov is an experimental absurdist comedy based on Nikolay Erdman’s play “The Suicide”. It invites you to spend three hours in 3 separate floors of a Communist-era apartment building of the 1930s. You become a participant of a tragicomedy in which the boundary between stage and audience is blurred – the spectators can engage in dialogue, dine, and even drink with the characters. The play is experimental not only in content but in form – each act is played on a different floor of the Perron #7 art space. All borders separating spectator from actor are destroyed, as players interact with the viewers in the communal apartments, at the dinner table, and at tenant meetings.

A language that is simultaneously reminiscent of a baby’s babble and freestyle jazz, becomes easier to understand step by step thanks to the musical instruments which the character discovers on his journey around the world.
