“Ryzhy” is a theatrical trip through space and time. The time is the end of the 1980s and beginning of the 1990s. “Those fabulous years”, when “we lived poorly but so well.”

The creators got rid of the customary structure “stage-and-auditorium,” instead setting a small amphitheater for the audience up on the revolving platform. “Beware, the train is taking off!” — and the public begins its journey from “stop” to “stop,” from one location to another. At each of the musical journey’s stations, you can find the signs of the real city of Yekaterinburg (formerly Sverdlovsk). The creators had tried to translate Boris Ryzhy’s poetic inflections to the language of theater with utmost caution.
Watching “Ryzhy”, you see real human stories plunged into the history of the city and the world, mixed in and made into a single whole… The way it’s all done — sung, read, played, and danced — is a separate story. This is, perhaps, the only theater where actors can do such things with absolute professionalism, often attaining virtuosity. And at the same time they don’t look like they are working, it’s as if they simply exist in their natural environment.
