Unfortunately, it does not happen as often as I would wish to”, confessed the Minister. Vladimir Medinsky pointed out that The Vakhtangov Theatre is an incredibly successful organization.

“Last season the Theatre reached an absolute record in attendance of its performances. Total number of visitors amounted 308 thousand people.
