Why is it worth going to the play Everywhere Alone (Candle in the Wind)?

1. Lighting the life of Taras Shevchenko in new colors
2. Interesting facts about the poet’s biography not from the school textbook
3. The story of true freedom of mind and willpower

There are individuals whose lives are no less vivid than their work. Such was Taras Grigorievich Shevchenko, Tiranoborets, Prophet, Speaker of Liberty. It was about him that the performance of the National Theater of Russian Drama "Everywhere Alone, or a Candle in the Wind."

Ukrainian land is famous for its generosity and inexhaustible fertility. Bringing crops not only generally accepted, but also giving the world real geniuses, such as Taras Shevchenko, the unquenchable Svetoch. With his fiery word, he always stood guard over his fellow countrymen, "slave nimih." And he gave such a necessary appeal to Zapovity: "Break the Kaidani!"

But few of those people who deserved immortality in their memory with their creativity reached it at the same price. Fate did not particularly spare Taras Shevchenko and sent him the most severe trials and sufferings. The poet lived only 47 years. And how he lived! 25 of them - as serfs, essentially in slavery. Another 10 - in exile and the soldiers. And the few remaining years Taras Shevchenko fought against illnesses, deprivations, cherishing the unfulfilled dream: to create a family hearth and elementary, simple comfort in your home - a small but native hut in your favorite land.

About Taras Shevchenko there are many textbook and, let's say, hackneyed declarations and representations. The theatrical interpretation from the Academic Theater of Rusdrama will break the usual stereotypes. In the performance, various motifs from the life of the Artist and the Poet harmoniously and intertwined: love, creativity, repentance, disappointment, bewilderment, hatred, oblivion and fame, as well as a burning desire to comprehend everything and everything.
