Secretary of the Union of Theater Workers of Armenia Sona Meloyan said at a press conference in “Armenpress” that this is a large-scale project being implemented by the Confederation of Theater Workers of Moscow.
“The main task of the forum is to preserve as much as possible the contacts and traditions that have developed over the years. The project involves theater experts, playwrights, artists, seminars are organized within its framework, anthologies are published, and director’s competitive screenings are held. I am proud to say that the Republic of Armenia is the champion of this forum, because we have participated 4 times and returned 4 times with an award, ”said Sona Meloyan. She added that the winning performances are chosen by a strict professional jury.
“No one else had such a success as the Armenian one, and when the performance was over and our actresses entered the restaurant where the dinner was organized, you had to see with what exclamations they were received … Every day there were performances, but ours were in a star status … Everyone asked for an autograph, wanted to be photographed with our actresses. “Lera Kudryavtseva said that the interpretation of Gor Margaryan gave a different shade to the play“ Gardenia ”,” said the therapist. According to her, thanks to this generation of theatrical figures, Armenia is now perceived differently abroad, whereas earlier the impression was created that the theatrical country in the region is Georgia, now it is Armenia by all standards.
Director of the Russian Drama Theater.

Let me remind you that Elzhbeta Khovanets’ play “Gardenia” was staged at the Russian Drama Theater. K. Stanislavsky. It was the first performance to be shown live, and after that, thanks to our fantastic, wonderful actresses, this performance took part in other festivals and received an award. So this show has a guarantee of success.
Both Elena Vardanyan and Tatevik Melkonyan, Ayyarpi Zurnachyan, Anna Manucharyan really deserve words of praise. This performance will always be considered one of the best performances in our theater. I also greet Gor Margaryan and wish him success, ”Ms. Mkhitaryan stressed.
Gor Margaryan said that the performance was greeted warmly, the audience was prepared and knew what they would watch. “People watched the performance standing on one leg, even in the rooms where the sound engineer and lighting designer worked. In other words, the needle had nowhere to fall. “
According to theater expert Tigran Martirosyan, one of the guarantees of success was that they acted according to the well-known principle – “one for all, all for one”. “This is very important for a delegation of any format and in any field.”
He said that there was a group for young critics at the forum, where round tables, discussions, master classes are held. He presented the newly created theater site, and a heated discussion erupted there.
