Oleg Tabakov Gala
On November 14 Moscow Art Theatre celebrated the 80th anniversary of its artistic director, Oleg Tabakov.

Mr. Tabakov has turned 80 on August 17, during the theatrical off-season, — and the birthday was then celebrated within the “inner circle” at the Small Stage. Now the celebration took place at the Main Stage, honoring with the festivities not only Mr. Tabakov, but the entire house of his 1,000 friends and colleagues. In a cabaret performance, directed by Mikhail Rakhlin, took part actors of the Moscow Art and Tabakov Theatre, students of the MXAT School and of the Tabakov High School of Acting. Featured among others were Oleg Tabakov’s senior colleagues Alexander Shirvindt, Stanislav Lyubshin, Yuri Solomin, and, father to all of them, Vladimir Zeldin, age 100 years. Paying tribute to their master were graduates of his classes starting with his first class of 1980, and his family – Marina Zudina, Pavel and Masha Tabakov. Family secrets were being revealed, beautiful ladies were confessing their love, brutal men were singing about “father artistic director”, youth was showing shocking experiments, Mordovian folk songs were chanted, two troupes were literally fighting for the leadership, Sergey Bezrukov reminded of the legendary production of Amadeus, and Vladimir Mashkov recalled performing My Big Land at the Tabakov Theatre, Polina Gagarina presented her new song dedicated to Oleg Tabakov, and Yuri Rost stopped a moment, making new historical photo of Tabakov. Mikhail Shvydkoi, Mikhail Zhvanetsky, Evgeny Grishkovets, came onto stage to address Mr. Tabakov, followed by Alexandrov Russian Army Ensemble, Vladimir Spivakov and the Moscow Virtuosi Orchestra, Central Actors’ Club, represented by their directors, Igor Zolotovitsky and Alexander Zhigalkin; and addressing from screen, Evgeni Mironov and Theatre of Nations, Galina Volchek and Mark Zakharov. Two MC were Igor Zolotovitsky and Ivan Urgant.
