About event



In the year of its 70th anniversary, the Odessa Academic Theater of Musical Comedy named after. M. Vodyany presents the legendary operetta, staged in 1956 on our stage and which has become the hallmark of the theatre. "White Acacia" for the Odessa Musical Comedy - like "The Seagull" for the Moscow Art Theater.

“The idea of the “White Action” arose in May 1954, when I. Dunayevsky arrived in Odessa with libretists Vladimir Mass and Mikhail Chervinsky. “We walked the streets and dreamed,” recalled I. Grinshpun. “We dreamed of a new operetta, we even found a courtyard where the action would take place. The old Odessa courtyard, many neighbors, where everyone shares the sorrows and joys that occur in every family ... This is how ... "White Acacia" was born. We were looking forward to it, because it was “Odessa material”... From the first days of our arrival in Odessa, which received us so hospitably, I wanted to dedicate the performance to this city, sung many times, fanned by romance.” In Odessa, romance has always been personified by the sea and sailors, and in the 1950s, whalers were the main heroes of the sea. Departure and return from the voyage of the Slava flotilla gathered in the port and on Primorsky Boulevard not only relatives and friends, but also tens of thousands of those eager to see this majestic spectacle with their own eyes. Unlike official dates, these were truly folk holidays. That is why the authors decided to make the whalers the heroes of the new operetta.” (A. Galyas "Today and forever")

In 1957, a film was made based on the play, which was released on May 12, 1958, after which “the theater broke into the leaders of its art form. Mikhail Vodyanoy became what in the old days was called "the favorite of the public." And Tony's song about Odessa became at first informal, and since August 25, 2011 - the official anthem of the city. This song is forever "related" to the voice of Idalia Ivanova ... "

The legendary operetta, the star cast of artists (5 People's Artists of Ukraine), the amazing music of Isaac Dunayevsky and the heady aroma of white acacia - all this awaits our viewers!
