The President said, in particular, in his message:
“Our country takes deserved pride in the names of its wonderful actors, who have written memorable pages in the history of Russian theatre. They have won the sincere love of generations of spectators and their creative legacy will always be an inalienable part of our national culture.
The Figaro prize is awarded for outstanding achievements in theatre, and it is pleasing to see that it is recognising not only well-known masters of their craft but also young talent on the rise. It is they who will preserve and develop Russian theatre’s unique traditions.”
