"Innkeeper" is a classic Italian comedy. The premiere of Carlo Goldoni's play took place in 1753 in Venice. And for the third century the interest in the history of the beautiful Mirandolina has not ceased.
Theater "Atelier" ("Independent Theater Project") refers to the great Italian classics for the second time: the first production of "The Innkeeper" with the brilliant Tatiana Vasilieva was played from 2002 to 2008 with the same sold-out notches. Both the audience and the creators were very fond of the performance and conducted it from the stage with great regret: one of the actors could not continue working in the play, and the other actor's ensemble was then completely impossible.
Time passed, we missed the "Innkeeper". We knew for sure that we would play again. Another performance, with other actors, but he will. Mirandolina was needed. Goldoni in the XVIII century created a female image of incredible power and charm, in general the name "Mirandolina" should flaunt on the flag of today's feminists. I needed an actress who can play everything - love and tenderness, shock and deceit, laughter and tears - and all this is easy and with an incredible charm. A woman in whom all men fall in love, regardless of status, age or even a desire to fall in love. And such an actress was found. Anna Ardova!
Artist Victoria Sevryukova created costumes for our "Innkeeper", which the Venetians themselves would envy of the XVIII century.
We are happy to present you a new version of our "Innkeeper". Funny, beautiful and surprisingly modern!
