Mikhail Bulgakov as a unique, XX century Russian artist (in Russian) – Friday, 7 May at 19:00 (GMT)

Friday 7 May, 19:00 - 20:30

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940)

Why is it often difficult to render literature into film? The magic of Bulgakov’s words, his synthesis of ideas and images of ideas are the answer. Bulgakov needs to be listened to! One needs to hear him. His words passionately combine history, culture, the music of Kiev and Moscow. He was a miracle maker. Let’s take a closer look and listen to how he did it in his best works!

On the eve of the 130th anniversary of the writer’s birth, Irina Georgievna Mineralova will talk about the works of M.A. Bulgakov, who was one of the most versatile Russian and Soviet artists of the XX century, a writer, a playwright, a theatre director and an actor.

WHEN: Friday, 7 May 2021, 19:00 (GMT)
