Great actors of the past era. TV shows

Amazing date on the calendar tomorrow. Two, at first glance, unrelated events – on November 15, 1866, the great Russian actress Alexandra Yablochkina was born in St. Petersburg, and in 1934 the first practical audio broadcast of low-line television took place: Moskvin read the story of A.P. Chekhov’s “Attacker”, performed by a singer and a ballet couple. Thanks to the possibility of sound television broadcasts, another possibility appeared – to preserve for the descendants the amazing play of the great Russian actors … TV shows recorded many years ago are simply priceless today! We can see Yablochkina, Gogolev, Yanshin, Ilyinsky, Tilled, Ranevskaya, Plyatt and many others alive … such as they were seen by contemporaries who were lucky to attend their performances. I invite you to a television theater …

Where actors are taught: Schukin School

Today Shchukin School celebrates its 101st birthday. This is a theater institute with its own special traditions. Only one out of a hundred applicants manage to get the coveted student ID.

The Shchukin school began with … failure. At one time it was an amateur theater studio. Unprofessional actors called for the head of Yevgeny Vakhtangov – a student of Stanislavsky and a young actor of the Moscow Art Theater. The first performance of the students was a failure, and in response, Vakhtangov said: “Let’s learn.” So, on October 23, 1914, the studio became a school.

The institute, which was at first one of the Moscow Art Theater’s studios, received the name of Boris Schukin, Vakhtangov’s favorite student, an actor who first played in the cinema of Vladimir Lenin. There is a version that it was for this ideological reason that the school became Schukinsky, and not Vakhtangovsky. Continue reading
