15th International Drama Festival Voices of History has been postponed in line with a ban on large-scale events until 2021.
Vologda was to become home to XV International drama festival "Voices of History" from July 1 throughout July 10, 2020. But Voices of History announced it would postpone until summer 2021, a decision "aligned with the recent Volodga Region Government recommendations aimed at containing the spread of the coronavirus."
The festival "Voices of History", which emerged in 1991 as a review of the performances of professional theatres in the historical and architectural ensemble of the unique environment of the Vologda Kremlin has long been a hallmark of the Vologda Region, a favourite festival of all theatre-goers. In 2003 it received an international status. The performances are shown in the open air, in the historical setting of the Vologda Kremlin, which is a point of interest itself.
The Voices of History are held not only in the historical setting of the Vologda Kremlin, which is a point of interest itself, but also in the Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery and the Museum of history and ethnography "Manor of the Galskoys” in Cherepovets City.
Puppet theaters from Russia and foreign countries also take part in the festival "Voices of History".
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 the 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.
