MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) – A group of leading actors from the company of Taganka theater have asked the former Taganka theater Chief, Yuri Lyubimov, to return to the theater, the actors said at a press conference held at Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"We acknowledge that an experiment of continuing the life and development of the theater without Yuri Petrovich (Lyubimov) proved unfeasible and failed. After months of anguish, lies and distortion of facts we realized we should say certain words which are obvious and which have always been on the tip of the tongue. Without Lyubimov this theater can neither live, nor develop," one of the leading Taganka actors,Timur Badalbeili, declared at the press conference.
"We regard the situation in respect to Lyubimov as terrible injustice and misunderstanding. We are speaking on our own behalf, not representing the face of the theater. But we want Yuri Petrovich to live and work at the theater which he created," Badalbeili said.
Yuri Lyubimov resigned from the post of Taganka chief artistic director and its executive director after a conflict with the company of the theater in 2011.
After Lyubimov resigned the company nominated Valery Zolotukhin to the post of the theater chief. In connection with Zolotukhin's illness Vladimir Fleisher has been appointed to the post of the theater executive director, but the post of Taganka chief artistic director remains vacant until now.
