Do not simplify
That evening was opera Glinka's "Ruslan and Lyudmila" at the Bolshoi Theater.He sounded the overture, saying the idea of heroism, loyalty and courage.Then the curtain opened, and a girl sitting at the barrier in the bed, quietly gasped - delight in front of colorful decorations, costumes brightness artists in the wedding scene Lyudmila, daughter of the prince of Kiev.And though she knew the contents - the father read her poem Pushkin in early childhood - girl relives disappearance Lyudmila, anxiously listened to the aria of the main characters, in choral singing.
Irisha Vashkevich for the first time at the Bolshoi Theatre."Understand there, because the opera is so multifaceted, deep?" - Worried father.Mother had no doubt: will understand - it is not the first year engaged in the choir.
Opera differed humanity, simplicity.It was attended and lyricism, and heroism, and the philosophy and humor.The main key is emotional, of course, patriotism."Ruslan and Lyudmila", in fact, lyrical and epic tale of hero
Not once, not twice returned home to the opera, talking with Irishev.And the father after the service, and the mother, and grandmother.The play made, perhaps, a stronger impression than the books that she loved and happy to read a girl.There is still exposed to the music, the acting, singing them.Even the scenery.
Argued - children, they say, need to show a fairy tale, written especially for them ... I do not play to score their heads complexities, deep thoughts, the problems of modern life, search for characters, their throwing.In other words, move on stage life in a simplified form.Allow me to disagree.
Even little (unfortunately, they are not always allowed and the day to performances) intuitively be able to take something of value for themselves heard from opera, ballet seen, adult play.And the more a teenager.They have their own, children's theaters, TYuZy, which are both modern plays and classics.We love to talk about education through art.But a person is particularly affected by what resonates with his personal experience, his thoughts, his feelings that will touch.
Sometimes looking teenager play famous playwright quite dispassionately, it does not affect anything.And suddenly, from one or another situation vstrepenetsya soul.Awake idea stretched thread from the stage to the boy.There is a force field, stimulating the mind and heart of the viewer.
Do not assume if re-educates play instantly, right in the auditorium restructures consciousness.No, this is a complicated process.Helps deepen his reflections after the show, interviews with parents of young spectator, discussion of problems, their solutions, proposed a playwright, director, actor.Plays A.Vampilov, A. Gelman, Galin, LA Petrushevskaya lead to lengthy discussions, unwittingly becomes a conversation about life.There is the same generation of opinion, which is so essential to our younger generation, if we want it to be thinking seriously, deeply thoughtful.
very useful meeting with the creative team of young viewers after the show.
in Chelyabinsk Youth Theatre, for example, was fixed a good tradition to invite to such conversations and parents.Together with the children they are watching a particular piece, then work together to try to understand the subtleties of all like to say to the authors and artists.The conversation is sincere, not memorized script as practiced sometimes in schools.Often parents at such moments make original discoveries - know your son or daughter with a completely different hand, are closer to each other.
wonder done in the theater play by K. Skvortsov "The Legend of chudyah".Created on the basis of folklore, involving music, ancient rites, he tells of a legendary tribe of the Urals, urging people not to forget their history.
debt continued in the hall after the performance exchange of views - everything was clear the audience how life situations, whether the actors played truthfully.It was about the past and present of the country, about the people's memory, about the possibilities of the theater.In search of truth flashed a bright character, personality and adolescents, and adults.They complement each other, arguing, in his behavior confirming the educational role play.
Such meetings had yet another unexpected result.Changing attitudes in families between children and adults who have these adults were - metallurgists, teachers, officers, doctors ...
In the Moscow Youth Theatre often turn to the classics.
on its stage were repeatedly "Insulted and Injured" on the novel by Fyodor Dostoevsky.Hard-performance complex conflict, unvarnished truth.Not everyone believed possible just like that, without simplifications, showing teenagers tightly wound the vicissitudes of life.But the director recreated the story plot, not smoothing anything.Thus, the theater taught young viewers serious attitude to the creation of classic, to the problems that continually pushes the reality in front of us.And now, too.
solved quite a few social and moral issues in plays by contemporary authors.The role of the theater now has increased markedly, in the scene we see today's life in all its complexity and contradiction.And we, the parents, you can not underestimate the impact on the teenager, even if he does not live in a big city, but in a small village, which has only an amateur drama club.But even there the television leads directly to the house of metropolitan actors, the best performances, thrilled thousands of spectators.In your house there will also certainly a conversation that lasts more than one day.Of course, if the performance of interest to you or your children, will require each of solving various problems, their frank assessments.Without hypocrisy and half-truths.
Our society is now in the process of restructuring.And because we can not meet the children, even after the performance of acute theme of modernity, lightweight, veiled, not calling things by their names, fearing to sow confusion in the mind of a teenager.If a play is thought, therefore, with our son or daughter seriously, unvarnished, spoke from the stage.We need art fostered genuine patriots, people enthusiastic, energetic, able to administer large business for the benefit of the people.
mistaken are those who recognize the benefit of discussion only modern plays that reflect our reality.Is ostronasyschennye works by Alexander Ostrovsky, mercilessly scourging the old, terrible orders do not require interviews with senior junior?Or historical plays?
In the same Moscow Youth Theater teenagers watched the show Shatrova "The Sixth of July".Back home, Dima long tried to find my father, why in the program there was written - docudrama, not a historical play?And that is another talk, perhaps about the history?Why "On July sixth" is not considered to be historical?
father took the time - explained the teenager that Shatrov wrote the play nor the letter without departing from the original documents that the documentary genre is extremely accurate and even slightly dryish.The boy, however, did not notice this dryness.Not by chance, after sharing experiences with their parents, trying to literally right there in the room, play a game of actors.There, on the stage, acting heroes, which Dima wanted to learn as much as possible, historical events really worried about it, "according to the will of the author and director the action takes place rapidly, exciting.
bright spotlight shone blue velvet, tight stage. Under theShostakovich's music opened monumental Kremlin gates with two towers on each side - and in the doorway appeared a group of people to the edge of the stage moved the Bolsheviks who came to the Fifth All-Russian Congress of Soviets, Lenin, Sverdlov, Dzerzhinsky second group -... SRs All -. historical person
.slightly confused, but most clearly portrayed all the events of that evening Dima. And from what he heard, we explained why after all SRs revolted, the boy felt a little older, wiser. it seemed that today he suddenly looked into the historicalyear, personally watched the events of the sixth July.
history of the country, dedicated to her books, plays always concerned about young people. The play on the play by Mikhail Bulgakov "Days of Turbin" like a magnet attracts teenagers.Especially those who, not content with primitive rebels, wants to understand how to accomplish a revolution, the civil war took place.
«The people are not with us.The people against us "- coins
Colonel Alexei Turbin, dismissing his regiment and sending cadets to their homes.The political situation is very clear to him: "In Russia, two powers: the Bolsheviks and we are.We'll meet again: either we bury them, or rather, they are us. "Bulgakov traces the fate of the characters in one of the critical moments in history.Bright and written crowd scene in the gymnasium, and disputes turbines in their apartment, and joining the Reds in Kiev.At the end of the prophetic words of Nicholas, the younger brother of the deceased Alexei Turbine: "Gentlemen, this is a great new historical prologue to the play."
With masterful pen of Bulgakov in the imagination of teenagers permanently imprinted on all the events of that terrible, stormy time.From smooth Whites guys are already beginning to highlight those who managed to find out who is right and join the ranks of its defenders.
diverse repertoire theaters.It acquaints visitors with the life like other peoples, other eras, and our contemporaries.Each performance can be found paintings, scenes that contain excellent material for patriotic education of children.
We have already touched on in passing that, with keen interest how guys perceive historical episodes unfolding at the theater.That's why I want to advise closer, often attach a son or daughter to the history of our country, to read historical books, trips to museums, excursions to the native land.We'll talk more about this in a special section.Now recall the famous words of NK Krupskaya.Art, said Nadezhda, allowing "more deeply aware of their thoughts and feelings, think more clearly and feel more deeply ...".
