“King and the Clown”
Where it comes out: Kinopoisk
The punk fairy tale about Mikhail “Gorshka” Gorshenev, produced by the group’s staff director Igor “Panker” Gudkov and richly flavored with the music of KiSh, will certainly become a real event for everyone whose youth was spent listening to the songs of “The King and the Jester”. According to the creators, the series will combine two lines at once – the real biography of Gorshenev and the fabulous universe of his songs, in which Gorshenev and KiSh’s second vocalist Andrey “Knyaz” Knyazev roam, meeting mermaids, goblin and other legendary characters. Knyazev, by the way, became the second producer of the picture. The creators of the series basically selected unknown actors for the main roles, and the 32-year-old St. Petersburg resident Konstantin Plotnikov became a real find for them: his resemblance to Gorshkov is downright frightening. The role of Knyazev was also played by a little-known actor Vlad Kogoplev. However, judging by the trailer, where the actors play the scene of the famous Kisha concert in the Yubileiny Palace of Culture, the guys fit into the role with dignity and are able to rock not only thousands of extras, but also the all-Russian audience.
Where it comes out: Wink
In the field of ballet, the Russian school has been ahead of the rest for more than a decade, but the public knows much less about the ballet behind the scenes than, for example, about the inner workings of cinema. It’s a shameful fact: the life of ballerinas, laying on the altar of creativity virtually their whole life, sparing no joints and ligaments, is undoubtedly able to interest the public. It seems that the series “Ballet”, staged by Evgeny Sangadzhiev, is simply doomed to success.
The plot revolves around the former prima ballerina and now world-famous choreographer Ruta Myers, who returned to Russia after 40 years of absence and is forced to re-build relations with the tough ballet world, which forgives nothing and forgets nothing. The role of Myers is played by Alla Sigalova, a dancer, choreographer and head of the department of plastic education of an actor at the Moscow Art Theater School: the iron coaching notes in her voice are persuasive to the point of trembling. Although she is not the only representative of Russian creative cream in the casting: Irina Apeksimova, Igor Gordin, Liza Yankovskaya, and most importantly, Fedor Bondarchuk, whose presence traditionally guarantees a solid budget and the corresponding quality of the production, play in the series. Going behind the scenes of the Bolshoi is priceless: now there is a TV series “Ballet” for this.
