Yuri Alexandrov Receives “The Legend Prize”
Congratulations to Yuri Alexandrov! Yesterday at 19.00 in the Stravinsky Hall of the Helikon-Opera Theater, the closing ceremony of the Fifth Festival of Russian Musical Theatres "See the Music" and the presentation of the Legend Prize, which this year was awarded to the artistic director of the St. Petersburg Opera Theatre, People's Artist Russia Yuri Alexandrov.
Those who have had a great influence on the theatrical life of the country become laureates. Most of the recipients of the ceremony were unable to attend due to the restrictions set because of the pandemic. Only Yuri Alexandrov received the award personally.
“The Legend Prize” is our bow to those who have dedicated their lives to musical theatre. A symbol of our love and admiration for those from whom we learn all our lives, with whom we argue, whom we adore. To them, artists whose life in art inspires us to reach for the stars, today we say to thunderous applause: “You are a Legend!” - this is how the Festival writes about the award in the official communities on social networks.
