Kirillov will join Vologda to become home to XII International drama festival "Voices of History" from June 24 throughout July 2, 2014.
The festival will be held with an active backing of the Union of Theatre Workers of the Russian Federation. The Voices of History is organized jointly with the RF Ministry of Culture, the RF Union of theatrical workers, the Vologda Oblast Government and the administration of the city.
Since 1991 Vologda has been home to the International theatrical festival "Voices of History". It merits great attention. The success of it has been conditioned by the professionalism of the participants and serious experience, and the ability to combine these qualities with Russian national characteristics.
The performances are shown in the open air, in the historical setting of the Vologda Kremlin, which is a point of interest itself. Holding such a festival near the Kremlin is hardly a matter of chance. This year the performances will be also shown in the majestic architectural ensemble of the Kirillo-Belozersky monastery.
"The Voices of History" always attract the most skilful actors and repertory theatres from Moscow, St.Petersburg, Novgorod, Pskov, Vladimir, Arkhangelsk, Samara and other Russian cities. Theatres from USA, Poland, Greece, Italy, Ukraine, Belarus and other countries come to give performances in Vologda. The focus of the festival is on the history of Russia and the world history.
