Exhibition “Actual Russia: the Art of Memory”: 6 Mar – 15 Apr

Thus, the theme of Actual Russia project 2020 is memory. In 2020, the exhibition of the “Actual Russia” project is dedicated to this topic, which introduces the works of Russian artists representing various art movements and schools.

The action of the opera takes place against the multi-screen video background.
