Why go to the performance farewell tango?

1. If you like the era of the 60s
2. The plot, clinging to the living
3. Excellent collaboration of gorgeous Anna Varpakhovskaya and young actors.

In the National Academic Theater of Russian Drama. Lesia Ukrainka benefit performance of the great stage diva - gorgeous Anna Varpakhovskaya! In the enchanting tragicomedy "Farewell Tango", the actress played the role of the imposing lord Edda - the mistress of fate and the prisoner of her own passions.

Created by the play of the Italian playwright Aldo Nicolai, the play takes the audience into the 1960s. There are only three heroes in front of us: Edda, a respectable, far from poor lady of post-Alzachian age, her talkative servant Fock and a handsome young man, Elio.

The life of the main character is already heading for sunset, but her memory does not want to put up with it. Yesterday's seducer of the famous and rich - ministers, generals, princes, diplomats and even one Indian Maharaj - lives on memories of past love victories. It seems that the seigneur blurs the line between past and present, between fiction and reality. During the day, she somehow keeps herself afloat, but at night her imagination is carried away to the land of dreams. Instead of sleep, dreaming of pure, bright, unclouded love. Where are you, prince on a white horse?

And then one night the doorbell rings. On the threshold - he ... Beautiful, young, fatal. Has her dream come true? Perhaps it is this young man who will decorate the sunset of her life. Do not rush to conclusions. The guy somehow insistently asks about the past of Edda, specifies every detail, as if he knows something or guesses ... Only at the end of the performance the viewer understands that he connects two characters.

“Farewell Tango” is a bitter story of loneliness, and a payment for terrible sins, and a later epiphany, from which one cannot escape.
