|Collective composition 1996-2004|
|In mese en scene and scenography||Anatoli Vasiliev|
In a wonderful way the existence of people on stage assures of absolute seriousness and universal validity. If this is so, then things should indeed be as they are. Ultimately, there are moments in The Iliad of such harmonious visual beauty... that reason with all its critical concerns recedes. Ultimately, there are the unique, beautiful and majestic choruses of the composer Vladimir Martynov ... during which you forget about theatre and about time, and about meaning. The central event and the essence of the songs are all about a collective experience of loss, where the collective aspect makes thing easier.
